Scrumptious offerings

Whenever there’s a country bestowed with culture and traditions, we just know that the food is worth the experiment. When it comes to cuisines Norwegians really push the boundaries of innovation treating you with the most delectable dishes.

Coffee date in the heart of the country, Oslo

Norwegians really know their coffee, owing to the long winters when the sun just resists to rise. From small-batch artisan roasters to specialist espresso bars their coffee connoisseurship is an unmatched experience for caffeine lovers. For that one not-to-be missed cup of coffee, we recommend the coffee pioneers - Tim Wendelboe, for a true bean-to-brew experience that perfectly complements Oslo’s architectural richness.

A car ride through the narrow streets, well that’s what ‘Norway’ is derived from

If you’re travelling with your friends or if it’s on your list for the honeymoon, then the enthralling road drive will take you to another world – of serenity and romance. Norway’s roads, bridges and tunnels are sparkling examples of their builders’ skill and tenacity and the stretches in the woods is where you can stop and experience the most scenic sunset.
