RICK STEVES' EUROPE: Oslo

Rick's crew stands in front of a scenic view of the farthest point inland of Norway’s longest fjord — Sognefjord. After driving all day across Norway, from Oslo to the fjord country in the west, Rick and the crew descended from the mountains, and this was their very first fjord sighting.

In this episode, Rick visits Norway.

The proud spirit of the Norwegian people shines in every dimension of their capital city — from its once-fearsome Viking ships to its sleek new Opera House, from tales of World War II heroism to the constant festival of its thriving harborfront.

Connecting with the culture, we enjoy art — from Vigeland's statues to Monch's scream — and cap things off by joining local friends for a sail on their fjord.

RICK STEVES' EUROPE: Oslo

Rick Steves advocates smart, affordable, perspective-broadening travel. As host and writer of the popular public television series RICK STEVES' EUROPE, and best-selling author of 40 European travel books, he encourages Americans to travel as "temporary locals."

He helps American travelers connect much more intimately and authentically with Europe — and Europeans — for a fraction of what mainstream tourists pay.
