It's no secret that Oslo isn't the cheapest destination out there. But it's also tricky to put a price on the jaw-dropping moment you first cast eyes on the ice-capped peaks and cobalt waters of the Geirangerfjord, those spine-tingling tales of brave Viking raiders that unfold in the local museums here, and the reams of culture there is to get through, from Henrik Ibsen to canvasses of Edward Munch. The solution? Saving money on cheap flights to Oslo from Australia can leave you with a bigger budget to explore this Scandinavian jewel. The best bargains are often with multiple stopovers and during the winter, when you'll catch the romantic Royal Palace dusted with snow, not to mention gravity-defying jumpers whizzing off the Holmenkollen ski jump!
Even if you're not coming to watch the Norwegian National Opera and Ballet, this jaw-dropping building is worth it for its jagged and seamless architecture.
