Finding a stylish hotel in Oslo that won’t drain your funds can be difficult, but the Scandic Vulkan is one of those rare exceptions to the rule.

One of the most enjoyable ways to orient yourself is to take a boat cruise and see the city from the water. You can even enjoy a classic Norwegian seafood lunch of fresh shrimp on board as you watch the scenery glide by with the wind in your hair.

It’s actually located right inside a shopping mall, but you won’t miss it: it’s a graphic designer’s dream with windows adorned in oversized typography and a showcase of cool low-brow art beckoning from within.
