This year, we are excited to be taking the fourth edition of #DTTTCampus to Oslo, the vibrant capital city of Norway. Here at the DTTT, we have followed Visit Oslo’s work for some time and we feel it is doing some really great things as a destination, particularly in the digital space. If you are not familiar with the ‘Great Escape’ campaign, it is definitely worth a watch!

Aside from iconic architecture, exciting eateries, beautiful nature, museums and sightseeing, Oslo is innovative, unique and somewhat extraordinary in its overall approach. For example, The Opera House, home to many events throughout the year, was inspired by Norwegian nature and the roof is designed to be walked on. This is the perfect spot for truly incredible views of the city!

So why visit Oslo? Here are a few more reasons why you must visit Oslo this year.

3. The Cool List

Alongside many other great destinations, Oslo was listed as number 11 of this year’s must-see destinations on the National Geographic’s ‘The Cool List 2019’, highlighting some standout architecture and a hit list of main attractions to visit.

2. European Green Capital 2019

In addition to leading in digital, Oslo is also very active in eco-friendly and sustainable travel, something very prevalent in the travel industry today. Oslo works hard to spread travel throughout the year promoting sustainable tourism, with the belief that tourism should be an industry that makes life better for the people of Oslo as well as those visiting.

The city as a whole boasts many eco-friendly initiatives based on the principles of sustainable city planning. From car-free streets to one of the most environmentally friendly airports in the world, Oslo also has a ‘green guide’ inspiring visitors to enjoy an eco-friendly stay offering everything from eco-friendly accommodation to locally sourced, sustainable places to eat.

3. Oslo in the Summer

As Campus will be taking place on 13th - 14th June 2019, there will be plenty of summer activities on offer such as urban swimming, enjoying a drink on a rooftop terrace or island hopping in the Oslo Fjords. There is plenty to do during the summer in Oslo.

4. DTTTCampus

Last but certainly not least, the DTTT team will be in Oslo for Campus this year! Over the course of 2 days, we will be talking all about content, curating authentic experiences, real examples and learnings from DMOs worldwide, and all the people behind it in the beautiful city of Oslo.

There are our top reasons why to visit Oslo this year! If anyone has any other must-do activities or sights to add to the list, please share! We hope to see you there!
