1. Oslo`s Opportunities
The majestic Oslo Opera House is an iconic building situated right on the edge of the Oslo fjord. it was designes to look like an iceberg out of water.
While you might not have time to take in a show, don`t miss the stunning views. Visitors can walk right onto the sloping opera roof and relax with unforgettable views of the city and fjord.
2. Bergen`s Beauties
Bryggen, the city’s most famous attraction, which dates back to mediaeval times, is an absolute must. The Hanseatic wharf is on UNESCO’s list of World Heritage sites. The iconic wooden buildings in an array of colours line the seaside. The area is a reminder of the time when Bergen was a major centre for trade between Norway and the rest of Europe. Bergen was also once the capital of Norway, something which many proud Bergen locals still (half seriously) think it should be.
3. Trondheim`s Traditions
Carve out some time during your event to visit the Nidaros Cathedral and Archbishop’s Palace. They are located side by side in the middle of the city centre. Construction on the famous cathedral started in 1070, and it remains the most important Gothic monument in Norway. If your team is interested in fine dining, you're in luck! Trondheim was named European Region of Gastronomy 2022. You can treat your team to a memorable meal after your conference at one of the three Michelin-starred restaurants in the city. There is so much to see in this vibrant and innovative city, that's also rich in history.
4. Stavanger`s Secrets
Stavanger has become a mecca for street art. The NuArt festival takes place every autumn in Stavanger and brings together an invited team of international street artists. These artists leave their mark on the city’s walls, both indoor and outdoor, creating one of Europe’s most dynamic and constantly evolving public art events. Take a stroll around the city and see if you can find all the hidden gems!
Schedule an extra 15 minutes before your event starts to stroll up and down the city's narrow, cobblestone streets, in Old Stavanger. Wind your way through the centre as you take in quaint wooden homes dating back to the 18th century, many of which are listed and considered part of the city’s cultural heritage. Stavanger is also a modern and international city full of vibrant pubs, cafés, and shops (and top conference venues).
5. Tromsø`s Treasures
The Tromsø bridge is a landmark in Tromsø, and located close to all the major conference and event venues. It crosses the Tromsøysundet strait to Tromsdalen on the mainland, where you will find the iconic Arctic Cathedral and a gondola that takes you up to the top of the mountain, where you can enjoy stunning views of Tromsø and the surrounding islands, mountains and fjords. Fjellstua, the mountain lodge restaurant, offers a variety of local cuisine and an outstanding view. Arctic adventures await! Give your team a unique experience of the northern lights or dog sledding, all just a short flight from numerous destinations.
