Oslo: cheap things to do in the most expensive city
Sleep and eat on the cheap
The cheapest way of sleeping in Oslo is to camp out in the forest or on the island of Langøyene, with views over the fjord. There are also campsites and hostels in the centre that won't break the bank. The cheapest streets for eating out are Grønland, Grønlandsleiret and Torggata.
Island hopping with the ferry
It's very easy to put a cruise together yourself in Oslo. With your normal transport ticket you can tour the fjords and their beaches by hopping on and off all the boats that sail between Rådhusbrygge 3, Hovedøya, Lindøya, Nakholmen, Bleikøya, Gressholmen and Langøyene.
