Oslo

Continental Europe's northern-most capital is frequently ranked in the top three cities worldwide for quality of life. As one strolls down the Havnepromenade (harbor promenade) looking out over the smaller neighboring islands it is easy to understand why. The city is rich in natural beauty, culture and history. For those who have always wanted to feel like a real Viking – grab your helmet and mug of mead and go to the Viking ship museum.
