The capital of Norway, Oslo, offers a beautiful holiday destination. It is a hub of culture, science and economics in the country. When you come on cheap flights to Oslo, you will be able to enjoy many attractions here. Besides the historical and cultural attractions, the city offers an unforgettable shopping, clubbing and dining experience.

The city is a major maritime hub. It has numerous shipping lines and ship building companies having their offices here. People, who come on cheap tickets to Oslo, will truly enjoy cruises on the fjords. Typically, these cruises begin right in front of the City Hall and last for an hour or several hours, depending on the type of cruise booked. Cruising is a wonderful way to go sightseeing around the city.

Flights to Oslo allow Viking enthusiasts to visit the popular Viking Ship Museum. This museum is situated on the Bygdoy Peninsula. It offers an amazing view of a 9th century Viking burial ship. A visit to this museum should not be missed.

Another popular sight to see in the city is famous Kon-Tiki Raft. This was the actual raft used in 1947 by Thor Heyerdahl to sail from Peru to Polynesia and back. The raft is made from Balsa wood and is just as it was when built originally.

The country experiences a lot of snow in winter, so it is but natural that skiing will be one of the many winter sports that the Norwegians indulge in. You can learn about the 4,000-year old history of skiing at the Ski Museum. Also make time to visit the magnificent Holmenkollen Ski Jump, which hosted the World Cup in Biathlon and Nordic disciplines.

Culture lovers will be in heaven when they visit the Norwegian Folk Museum. They will feel as though they have entered a time long gone by. The museum is an open-air one, but also has other buildings as part of it. Here you can see how the people in this region lived and went about their daily life, right from the 16th century until modern times.

Perhaps, this is the only city in the world with has a sculpture park. Make sure that you visit this park to get awed by the 200+ sculptures made by Gustav Vigeland. These sculptures are made from wrought iron, bronze and granite, and are truly amazing.

If possible try to organize cheap flight tickets during the middle of May. A variety of airfares are available then. This is perhaps the best time to experience the culture of the city. The country’s Constitution Day is on 17 May and the city being the capital and home to the Royal family, celebrates this day with a lot of gusto and style. The day is marked with parades, people dress in traditional outfits. Stalls sell a lot of local delicacies that are worth tasting and enjoying.

You can easily come to this city from the UK on British Airways, while those traveling from North America can use Air Canada or US Airways. You are bound to get cheap airfares, as long as you do some comparative shopping. The point remains that you should not miss spending at least one of your holidays in this amazing and beautiful city.
