Norway: Oslo for thrill-seekers

Oslo has a wealth of activities for those delegates in search of adventure and adrenaline.

Oslo Summer Park: Located next to Nordmarka Forest and Holmenkollen, the park provides groups with many experiences guaranteed to raise adrenaline levels. Groups can choose from trail biking, climbing and the Tiger’s Leap, which has been introduced this year. Groups can climb up 88 steps on a 25-metre high stick for some stunning views (for those who are not scared of heights). They are then challenged to jump, experiencing free fall for about two-thirds of the way.

Kollensvevet: If that wasn't quite high enough, groups can visit Kollensvevet - the Ski Jump Tower, where they can jump like a professional ski jumper, but with aid from a zip line. With more than a 360-metre long zip line and an elevation drop of more than 100 meters, this is a must for those who want a thrilling experience.  

Oslo Fjord: The city is not all about heights - if you prefer life in the fast lane, head to the Oslo Fjord, where groups can ride on the water at high speed in a RIB boat. A fjord safari, sightseeing and cultural elements can also be added to the ride. Another activity that is new this season is SUP - stand up paddling, where groups stand and paddle on custom boards through channels around Tjuvholmen and Aker Brygge, followed by champagne, hot dogs and a mini concert at Café de Concert.
