Scandinavian Airlines is offering an excellent sale from San Francisco to Oslo, Norway, round trip, for only $540. This price includes all airfare taxes and is impressive on this 12,032 mile international flight.
Oslo is not only the Capital of Norway, but sits at the head of the Oslofjord, the Southern Coast. This makes it the perfect place to combine your love of the water with modern entertainment, maritime history, and the unique experience of Norway.
Norway is home to mountains, glaciers, and deep coastal fjords, and has preserved Viking ships that show the long history of this Scandinavian land. The country itself is only around three quarters the size of the state of California, which is a good size, but small enough to easily travel between its cities and along the coasts. You can take advantage of this trip and not only experience Oslo, but the other cities of Norway as well.
You can check out the Vigeland Museum, the Norwegian Museum of Cultural History, the extremely cool Viking Ship museum, the Akershus Fortress, and Oslofjord if you are a history buff. There are plenty of amazing Scandinavian restaurants and Oslo is known for its incredible music venues and nightlife as well.
While you are in Norway, it would be worthwhile to visit the archipelago in the northern part of Norway, called the Lofoten Islands. You can take an inexpensive Norwegian Air Shuttle, who has great deals to and from Oslo. These beautiful islands are paradise. No matter what time of the year you visit, the views and entertainment are stunning.
Speaking of stunning, one of the best places in the world, along with Greenland, to view the Aurora Borealis (the Northern Lights) is from Norway. If you want to see the snapback of Earth’s magnetic field protecting us from the Sun’s rays, this is the best place to capture the most amazing Northern Light shows on the planet.
