Oslo is a safe city but, as with anywhere, it's best not to be complacent; keep your wits about you, especially in the wee hours.

  • East Oslo has a reputation for being dodgy but, while it's true that you're likely to encounter a fair few drug addicts (and sometimes very public drug use), even here the city is still reasonably danger-free at all hours of the day and night.
  • If you're planning on taking to Oslo’s waterways or hiking up in the hills, remember that the weather here can, even in summer, change rapidly.
