Oslo in a word: Exorbitant.
Chance of Hooking up: 4 / 5
Quality of Girls: 3.5 / 5
Nightlife: 3.5 / 5
Smoking tolerance level: 4 / 5
Beer: $12 average per 40ml beer
Bed: $40 for a dorm bed!
Bud: $15 per gram (hash).
Board: $30 for a pizza out.
Budget other: This is the most expensive city in the world. Its $5 for a small bottle of water, $4 for a snickers, and a ten minute taxi ride will cost you $60. The taxi to the airport (1hr) cost us more than $500!!! No joke. Budget at least $150 a day if you wanna have any fun.
It’s insanely expensive, not too pretty, and has alot of Roma beggars, but once you get over that, you’ll find out that Norwegians are some of the most friendliest people in the world, the nightlife is a blast and the girls are loose as they come. I really liked the city.
Looks: The typical Norsk are not quite the Scandinavian beauties you’d envision. The standard is hovering above average. You will see many cute faces, light eyes and plenty of blondes, but in general the females are quite large. Their average height is 5 ft 6 in (167 cm) and they tend to be quite broad. The upside to that is they have decent sized breasts (the average cup size is larger than a D cup). Girls don’t dress very feminine, but that’s mainly down the the fact the place is bloody freezing. The most popular color in Oslo fashion is grey and black. Generally, the best looking girls in Oslo are the Swedish ones!
PS – the best looking girl I saw in the country was actually an Ethiopian.
Demographics: 28 % of Oslo’s residents are of an immigrant or non-Norwegian background. Pakistanis make up 20,812 of the city’s inhabitants, followed by Somalis (10,780), Swedes (9,250), and Poles (8,854)—these are the four largest ethnic minority groups. Other large immigrant groups are people from Sri Lanka, Vietnam, Turkey, Morocco, Iraq and Denmark.
Attitudes: I have generally positive things to say about Norwegian girls in this regard. They are super-liberal, exceptionally friendly, and horny as hell. They actually behave like dudes when it comes to sex. Many of them actually approach YOU. They can be a little shy in conversation, but they’ll be more than happy to let you do the talking while they smile and nod a lot.
Gaming Strategy: At night, it’s pretty easy to pick up, so I don’t feel day game or pipelining is needed at all. The girls here are extremely receptive to approaches and are willing to make out pretty fast, too. I’d recommend peacocking and being bold and direct in the interaction. You must think like a viking to catch viking. I’d recommend you employ a wing thought, as cockblocking is common among girls (when this happened me, I just made out with both of them… argh!).
Nomad’s input: You’ll meet a few African dealers around Grønland at night time. We scored a small stick of hash to do us 3 days for 200NOK.

Where to buy Marijuana: Easiest way to score some hash is in center of the city, the subway will take you there. The stop is called “Grønland” (read Gronland is ok). Area in the middle of the city, all drug dealers are standing along the river there.
Prices: One gram of hash costs 12 Euro, five grams costs 45-55 Euro and ten grams between 89-100 Euro. It’s fresh, smelly and very potent, better than the hash. Prices are 19 Euro for one gram, and 64-69 Euro for five grams.
The following recommendations are based on my own personal experience and recommendations by my mate Atlas Al who has been living in the city for 2.5 years (He knows his shit. In fact, he just wrote the book on flagging! Check it out here!).
You have a few good options when it comes to nightlife. Firstly, you have the upmarket west end. Then you have the tourist traps like Karl Johan’s Gata and Aker Brygge (best avoided). However, the best place to party is Grünerløkka: the student/hipster area with cheaper drinks and looser women.
Here are some places you should hit.
On the west side of town. A few players I talked to recommended it as a great venue for picking up. Website here.
This basement hangout is my personal favorite. The beer is relatively cheap, the music is slick and it’s full of filthy Nordic rock chicks who are dying for a bit of cock. I picked up here consistently and so did my mates. It’s near the Dubliner pub. Website here.
This cool little boho cafébar was recommended to us by Al. On weekends it’s meant to be a great place to mingle and attracts a cool crowd. I only saw this place during the day, but unfortunately I was too drunk to make there afterhours. Highly recommended. Website here.
My Oslo Experience
I got my Norwegian flag in Serbia, but didn’t hold back in Oslo. To get an idea of what me and the crew got up to, check out my post Leprechauns, threesomes & vodka.
