Autumn in Oslo

I visited Oslo a few weekends ago, right at the height of autumn. Because of the unusually warm September in Edinburgh, most of the trees are still green here with all their leaves. Come on autumn, arrive in Edinburgh already!

My sister and I met my little brother, who is studying abroad in London, for a quick 48 hour trip to the capital city. I can’t wait to share a more detailed itinerary but until then, enjoy theseΒ autumn colors! If you haven’t guessed from my Instagram account, I’m still drooling over the colors in Norway…even a few weeks later!

I feel like I got super lucky and caught Oslo at the peak of their autumn colors. And here’s a hint, there really is no need to spend more than 48 in Oslo…it is a super manageable city in just a weekend (and your bank account will thank you for it!)

  • Agreed! Norway in autumn is just so beautiful! Can’t believe it’s still green in Scotland though! It already snowed in Germany…. crazy world! Also, I visited Oslo for 3 days and was kinda bored on my third day so one to two days are definitely enough for this little capital ;)

  • Agreed, the colors are beautiful. We don’t get much color in Florida……we usually go from green to brown to bare. The noreaster yesterday blew brown leaves into our pool. No more swimming until next May

  • you guys have quite the international family – 3 kids all abroad at once! the colors here look lovely, though you know I am biased towards a certain mitten-shaped state ;) honestly I’d love to see fall colors in person anywhere, since we don’t really get them in Taiwan.

  • So awesome that you have your siblings experiencing the UK with you! How fun :) And this is beautiful… I do think that no autumn can beat a New England autumn, but there are so many that come very close!

  • Jordan, great article! Frogner is beautiful!! Did you get a chance to rub the little boys hand? Interesting fact about Frogner, the US Marines house is right off of it, along with the US CMR! Also as you probably noticed most of the statues are naked, but there are a handful that are clothed, some very well hidden. I challenge you next time to see if you can find and count how many have a little decency ;) I really hope you had the opportunity to see the fjords, however i dont see photos!! They are a must and really show how beautiful the country is. Wish that you had more time in Norway, there is so much beauty. Hope one day you get to visit it again.. im sure there are people who will be there that will miss you like crazy.
