Host City

Oslo is the Capital and largest city of Norway, and the third largest city of Scandinavia. Situated in the East of the country in a fjord extending over an inlet of the Skaggerak strait, it is surrounded by green hills and mountains and includes 40 islands and 343 lakes. Oslo is one of the world's northernmost capitals and so gets only 6 hours of sunlight in the winter. In high summer, sunlight hours soar to 18, making its climate markedly different between seasons, with cold yet relatively dry winters.
A relatively compact city squeezed into a thin strip of land along the shoreline, Oslo prides itself as one of the world's most sustainable cities. While it holds an array of historic monuments, Oslo is perhaps most famous for its modern architecture, including striking and daring projects launched at the turn of the millennium. Oslo's economy is powered by the maritime industry, high-tech and clean energy sectors.


It is the beginning of autumn in September, and Oslo begins to experience the change from the sun filled summer days to the warm autumn colours and beautiful afternoon light. September is on the cusp of this change and can still experience a significant number of sunlight hours and reach temperatures of 22°C.

Autumn (September–October):
Average temperatures: 6.3°C to 10.8°C
Min. temperature: -0.2°C
Max. temperature: 22.5°C
