Oslo City Guide & Norwegian Women Overview

by The Masculine Traveler
Girl on the street in Oslo

Norwegian women are some of the most stunning in the world. With a population of around 5 million people living in Norway, only a bit over 600,000 residents in the capital city of Oslo. That means there are a LOT of single girls here.

Oslo being both the economic and governmental center of Norway is also the main hub for trade, banking industry and shipping. Being strategically situated, it is also an important location for maritime industries and trade within Europe. GDP based on PPP, Norway is one of the richest countries in the world, ranking normally within the top 10 countries each year, with the likes of Switzerland, UAE, Kuwait, Luxembourg and Qatar. This fact is quite clear as you see the high-quality of public transportation, infrastructure and housing while travelling throughout the capital.

Norwegian women are famous for their beauty, and Oslo will offer endless opportunities to pick one up during your visit. Let’s take a closer look at the capital, and what it has to offer:

Logistics

Oslo is a very walkable city, and its not necessary in most cases to use public transportation to get around. Taxis can be very expensive, and you want to avoid using them at all cost unless it’s a must. There are two main areas you should consider when searching for accommodation in Oslo – Sentrum (Center) and Grunnerløkka.

 Tip – Whatever you do, do not visit Oslo on Easter weekend. The city is completely empty for the most during the day, as many locals empty out of the city and flood in to their cabins in the mountains to partake in drinking and skiing while the city remains mostly shutdown from Thursday until Monday morning. If you have to visit during this period, it’s highly suggested to hookup with a local in order to get the invite to join the party up in to the mountains, to partake in the drinking and fun – you won’t be missing out on much in Oslo itself. 

Below is a breakdown of the two main areas recommended to stay in Oslo, in order to be close to the action:

Oslo City Guide & Norwegian Women Overview

1. Sentrum – The center of Oslo offers the majority of the attractions, nightlife, and cafes and restaurants. If you stay within the center, you will have easy walking access around the city, and can easily grab a metro if you wish to head off to a further destination outside of the city limits. As expected, prices in the center are the highest when compared to other neighborhoods, but you will save in having to buy a late night taxi to travel back in the later hours when the buses and metro stops working at 12AM.

For an apartment at a great price, centrally located, I can highly recommend Oslo Apartments – Sven Bruns Gate

2. Grünerløkka – This is considered the more artsy and hipster area of Oslo, with many cafes and pubs located all around. There are also some student dormitories located in the area, which meaning cheaper alcohol, food and a younger crowd. The neighborhood is an easy 15 minute walk to reach the central Oslo station by foot, and offers a good selection of hotels and Airbnb rentals for a slightly cheaper price than what you will find in Sentrum.

Norwegian Women

Oslo Norway City Guide and Norwegian Women Overview

Scandinavian women, and specifically Norwegian women, have a very natural beauty about themselves. Generally, the faces are a bit more round and have a very soft and gentle look. On average, the local Norwegian women have athletic and muscular bodies and can appear to have a few extra pounds on their build. They definitely are slightly heavier than Slavic women in general, but there is surely no issue here with being overweight or obese. If you are in to blondes, Norway and Scandinavia, in general, is the place to be.

What the Norwegian women garner in points for their facial beauty, they lose in femininity. You will not see many girls in high heels or dresses like in Eastern Europe. Women in Oslo tend to dress stylishly, but with a more casual style including lots of jeans and dark tennis shoes.

Oslo is the New York of Scandinavia. If New York is Slut Island, Oslo is the Viking capital for easy sex. This is predominantly a one-night stand culture. I heard it from Norwegian women and men alike of how liberal the people of Oslo are when it comes to sex. People bang, then bang another two or three times, before ever setting up the first date. I was able to attend my first after-party in Oslo. It is well established that you should invite a girl back for an after-party. The after-party is a euphemism for an invitation to hook-up and it is the cultural standard getting things on.

The easiest way to meet Norwegian girls is going to be online

So many of the women in Norway speak English, at least conversationally, that communication isn’t too challenging. The hard part is that culturally it can be a bit of a challenge to start conversations in public. Online sites and apps makes it MUCH easier and is going to be the main way that most guys meet Norwegian women, at least at first.

There are a few apps that are both very popular and work really well for guys that aren’t local. Depending on what you’re looking for the best options are:

Adult FriendFinder is the best app if you just want to find hookups

There isn’t an easier way to meet girls just looking to hook up than Adult FriendFinder right now. Tinder used to be a solid option here as well but lately it has morphed into more of a relationship app and has become a pretty bad experience for guys who aren’t really good-looking. Given how many good-looking guys you find in Oslo you can imagine why it isn’t great.

AFF has been the best option for English-speakers to find something casual in Norway. The bonus with AFF is that it’s also really popular in most Western countries so you can use it at home as well as while you’re traveling. Check out their free trial and start making plans before you get there (or meeting girls local to you).

Guys that want a real relationship should use Cupid

The most popular way to meet girls looking for long-term relationships with foreign guys is Cupid right now. It’s the biggest site out there that is focused on this type of relationship and I also think it happens to be the best. The quality of women is solid and it’s useful in several different countries.

Be warned, this isn’t for casual dating. The women on this site are looking for real relationships only for the most part.

Game

Being an American in Norway is a huge advantage, and you should play the card every chance you get if you fall under that category. The majority of the time, locals were quite surprised that an American was visiting Norway and would ask some questions first about why you are visiting, what do you think about Norway, and then break in to the talk about New York, Donald Trump, and all other things American. It’s clear that there is an infatuation here with American culture.

There is huge potential for day game in Oslo. Locals do not approach during the day. Johan’s Gate and Grünerløkka are both solid locations for street approaches. There are also a few malls close to Central Station which have excellent quality fr Norwegian women. Another recommended location is just Northwest of Oslo Sentrum, known as Bogstadveien Street in Majorstuen. This is a popular shopping street with many brand name stores, which even had a somewhat large crowd during Easter weekend.

Night game is very viable for fast sex. ONS culture here is alive and well, and Norwegian women are well known to jump in bed quickly. Rather than dating, fast and casual sex is the norm in Oslo. Norwegian men do approach at night, but only after they have a buzz. The men are tall and good-looking, but a player with solid game will do quite well in Oslo at night and won’t need to be concerned with the competition. Clubs usually close around 3AM depending on the venue.

Venues were limited during the holidays, but I did make an appearance to Jäger Bar, John’s Bar and Lava Club. Jäger is apparently quite popular with the locals, but has a bit too much of a hipster vibe for my personal taste. John’s Bar wasn’t too full inside, but would be worth a look if there was a larger crowd. There’s a long bar in the middle of the area, with tables surrounding the perimeter of the bar. Lava Club was mostly packed with younger guys. This place seems to gather a younger crowd when busy, but would be worth having a look inside nonetheless.

Norwegians are huge on “Vorspiel” and “Nachspiel” – pre-drinking and after-parties. Along with Dantes, we had the chance to attend an event and get a look and the dynamics. The pre-drinking event started out pretty calm, with some storytelling and joking around the dinner table. Nothing out of the normal for a night in with some friends doing some drinking and preparing for a solid night out. After the pre-drinking, we headed out to hit Jäger for the evening and afterwards headed back for the after-party. This is when it turned into a total shit show. Drugs, cocaine, pills were all floating around at your own disposal, in company of the strangest group of people, ranging from business professionals all the way to your local drug dealer.  If you get a chance, definitely take the time to get invited and check out this phenomenon.

Gutter game is another viable option in the evening, as the streets can fill up once venues are closing and everyone is running around either walking to an after-party or looking for an invite.

Cost

This certainly isn’t Eastern Europe anymore. Prices are high, but won’t be such a shock if you’re coming from another large Western city, such as Paris, London or even New York. Here’s a breakdown of what you can expect:

Breakfast (1 person) – $28
Dinner (mid-range 1 person – entry) – $40-$60
Liquor (higher-end bar/club) – 1 shot of vodka ($10-$12)
Beer (higher-end bar/club) – ($8-9)
Cigarettes – $11
Chicken (2.2lbs. / 1kg) – $18
Cheese (2.2lbs / 1kg) – $13
Assorted Fruits (2.2lbs / 1kg) – $3-5

Language

If you’re reading this, you should be fine in Norway. Norwegians boast one of the highest levels of English that I’ve encountered. Unlike many other countries, you can simply stick to your normal way of speaking, including humor and whit, without having to change your way of speaking including speaking slower or dumbing down sentences.

Norwegians have a full command of the English language, and you’ll probably even be surprised with some of the words they come up with when in a conversation with them. I would go as far as to say that some Norwegian women can imitate an American conversation so much that it might not be easy to differentiate between speaking with an American girl (minus some of the stupidity) vs. speaking with a Norwegian.

Seemingly, even the older generations are able to speak good English, and you’ll have no issues whatsoever in taxis, convenience stores, etc.

Learn a few words to impress, such as “takk”, “god morgen/god kveld” and” skol”. That’ll go far enough.

If you want to practice with native speakers, including good-looking Norwegian women, be sure to check this out.

Climate

This is Scandinavia – it’s blistering cold during the winter months. Even during April, the weather was still covering the city in snow and rain. The safest bet for warm weather would be the end of May into September. Bring proper clothing and dress warmly for all other months. Boots, gloves, and hats are suggested.

Tourist Attractions

Akershus Fortress – Walk along the water and enjoy the view of the city
The Norwegian National Opera and Ballet – Great view from the top of Oslo.
Vigelandsparken – Great spot in the summer, per local advice, to relax on the lawn as it’s packed and full of younger locals.
Museums: Viking Ship Museum, Natural History Museum, Fram Museum, National Gallery

Verdict

Oslo is a great, clean city with lots of parks, green areas, and malls to enjoy during the day with many night venues to hit during the nights. Compared with others to which I’ve traveled, Oslo certainly has one of the highest standards of life, if not the best. Social circle is important here and will get you invited to the local parties, on the guest list and introduced to other local Norwegian women in the same circle. Opportunities seem endless here, and the late spring to summer time seems like an excellent time to plan a trip and check out the city.

Again, don’t make the same mistake and do not visit the city during Easter. Also, be on the lookout for other holidays which may also hinder your chance of a good time in Oslo.
