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 a dramatic transformation as the changing of the seasons brings with it an innate beauty of colours. Temperatures in September drop to a low of 8°C (46°F). Visitors should experience about 5 hours of sunshine everyday, and about 81mm of average rainfall.

If you are planning to take a trip to Oslo during the autumn season make sure you carry warm clothing. The evenings are serene and the nights are less vibrant as not many people venture out due to low temperatures.
