What to Expect
Meet your guide and the rest of your group in downtown Oslo. Before embarking upon your tasting tour, there's time for a visit to a traditional Norwegian clothing (bunad) shop to learn about Norwegian apparel and traditions. Your tour continues to various stops, tasting dishes at each location, such as cheese, fish, and a traditional waffle-and-brown-cheese dessert at a small coffee shop. You also have the opportunity to sample some local Norwegian beers at a cozy bar, as well as a taste of aquavit, a strong, flavored Scandinavian spirit. With a full belly (and some insider foodie tips from your guide), your tour concludes in the city center.

On Sunday a very wet and grey Oslo day I took the food walking tour with Ivana and a few other people and she did a great job in keeping us up beat and enjoying the day due to the terrible weather. But the food and information associated was great to try and overall a good tour.

What a way to kill an afternoon in Oslo and taste some of the local traditions. Our group was a lot of fun and got along well. We took the guide off tour and off script a little, too, but it was a real blast! Contrary to what a lot of people think, the Norwegian food is real
