Feel as though you are going back in time while you are staying in the Oslo - Southern Norway area. Take the time to visit one of the ruins for which this place is known. For a budget-friendly, outdoor experience that will interest the entire family, take the time to check out the region's gardens, open-air museums and open-air exhibits.
Don't leave this area without getting a bird's-eye view. There are a few great places to try paragliding. When you hear the call of the wild, do as the locals do and go ice skating and four-wheel driving.
As the sun sets on your break, gather your luggage and bid Norway "Ha det bra" (farewell).
