Houses by the water in Oslo

Motorhome Hire Oslo

Although Oslo has a rich history and plenty of excellent museums, the Norwegian capital city is best known for holding the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony, the magnificent Opera House, urban floating saunas in the Oslo fjord and the high-rise Barcode buildings. Oslo also ranks high on the UN’s Human Development Index.

If you want to experience the city as the locals do, then do not miss walking down the river along Grünerløkka. This area is in Oslo's eastern district and was known for its large immigrant population until the end of the 1990s. For the past 20 years, Grünerløkka has undergone a total renovation over the past 20 years and is now a popular part of town, which is full of hipsters, a splash of art and some concept stores. Plus, it is also a melting point for cultures from all over the world.

Getting to Oslo

Oslo is located at the innermost part of the Oslo fjord, making it easy to access by both cruise ships and ferries. You can reach continental Europe via ferries to Germany, Denmark and Sweden, or by car via Sweden and Denmark. The Swedish border is less than 100 km east of Oslo. The E6 and E18 national roads run straight through Oslo, which means the city is well-connected both national and internationally. The E6 stretches all the way from southern Sweden to Kirkenes in northern Norway, while the E18 can be followed all the way from Sweden's capital Stockholm to Norway's oil capital Stavanger.

Oslo also has the Oslo Central Station, which is the main base for rail travel to the rest of the country, with trains to Stavanger, Trondheim, Bergen and Kongsvinger. Norway's main airport is Oslo Airport Gardermoen, and is located around 50 km outside the city, and the airport train will take you to the city centre in just 20 minutes. Oslo has a good public transport system with trams, buses and the metro. However, if you are thinking about travelling onward and seeing more of what Norway has to offer, then you can rent a motorhome in Oslo.

Parking in Oslo

Most parking in Oslo must be paid for. You should always check the signs in the area where you park, but the general rule is that in Oslo city centre parking must be paid for between the hours of 9 am to 8 pm, Monday through Saturday. Parking is free of charge at all other times. Oslo is working towards a "car-free city life", so vehicle access is being reduced and so are the number of parking spaces available. The cost of parking also varies greatly. If you need to pay for parking, there are ticket machines nearby, or you can download the Bil i Oslo app. You can expect to pay between 3NOK and 78NOK per hour.

There are also several parking garages, including Oslo P-hus and Sentrum P-hus, which give you an excellent opportunity to stroll around the city while your car or motorhome hire in Oslo is safely parked. These privately-owned parking spaces often have a higher hourly rate, but cheaper daily rates (130-500NOK).

Camping in Oslo

  • Ekeberg Camping: Near the city centre, but still in natural surroundings at Ekebergsletta. A space costs 650NOK.
  • Bogstad Camping: Located close to Holmenkollen, Bogstadvannet and Nordmarka - just 15 minutes away from the city centre.
  • Tyrifjorden: The Tyrifjorden area has several child-friendly campsites with opportunities to swim.
