Oslo is the perfect year-round flight destination so your visit will depend on whether you’d like to explore the city during the long days in some summer sun or would rather be gliding down the numerous ski slopes. Both, the summer and winter seasons are popular among travellers but if you book your flight to Oslo well in advance, there is a chance that you find a cheap flight.
Summer in Oslo is mild and warm with temperatures on average between 19 and 24 degrees Celsius. If you book a cheap flight to Oslo during the summer months of June to August, there is plenty to keep you occupied, from museums, to the Vigeland sculpture park and also the numerous events which take place across the city. The Oya Festival, for instance, is one of the most popular music festivals in Norway. Famous names and up-and-coming international acts take to the stage for this festival, which attracts tens of thousands of people. This event takes place every summer, usually in the month of August but check for the exact dates.
Winters are cold and snowy, with temperatures from around -7 up to -1 degrees. If you’re into winter sports, this is the perfect time to visit due to the ideal weather conditions. Snow usually falls from November to April but settles from January through March. Skiing and snowboarding in Oslo is unique. No other capital in the world offers the buzz of city life with cross-country ski-trails only around 20 minutes away on the metro. This makes it a wonderful destination for groups or families who want an active winter break.
Due to the city’s northern latitude, during midsummer Oslo experiences more than 18 hours of daylight and the city never gets completely dark at night, whereas midwinter only sees around 6 hours of light.
