Oslo City Guide 🇳🇴
Let's go explore
Norway might be one of the world's biggest producers of oil and gas, but its capital city is in the middle of implementing a green revolution. City bosses plan to slash emissions by an ambitious 95 percent by 2030.
In 2019, Oslo has been awarded as the European Green Capital due to the city’s focus on sustainable transportation. You can see all these marvellous electric vehicles while you are cruising around the city with your Voi. Oslo is also, by the way, the birthplace of the cheese slicer, pretty cool ah?

Fun fact about Voi in Oslo
The best time to visit Oslo is on the 17th of May, the Norwegian Constitution day. For many Norwegians, May 17th is even bigger than Christmas.
Women and men are dressed in their finest clothes – often the national suit "bunad" – and the day starts with a big breakfast of champagne, cake, and strawberries. After that, there is a parade through town where locals and tourists gather with Norwegian flags in their hands to celebrate the country's independence.
Gratulerer med dagen Norge!
