How’s the weather in May and June in Oslo?
This is our first spring in Oslo. We didn’t quite know what to expect. In fact you see in the streets people wearing winter jackets next to people with singlets and shorts. The month of May is known for being very unpredictable with very cold days and other warmer ones.
This year we’ve been amazingly lucky with high temperatures in the high twenties and lots of sun while Paris was flooding and Roland Garros tennis French Open was constantly interrupted by heavy rain.
So what do people do in Oslo?
See for yourself with the pictures below!
They go hiking, but that’s all year round any way. At spring you can see green grass and moss on the roofs of traditional cottages.
They go boating
And if you don’t have your private boat, you can take public transport around the fjord
They go to the beach… and find many quiet places away from the crowd for a swim
They have picnics at the park in the evening
On one other island of the fjord
Grilling meat on portable BBQs (can’t avoid a picture of food! that’s what you love about this blog right?)
And what’s totally crazy is how the sun doesn’t really set. Here is how bright it still is at midnight
Readers from overseas: when do you come to Oslo for a visit?
Oslo people, where do you hang out in this weather?
