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.

This pretty much lines up with my Oslo experience. Girls are better looking than American girls by a fair margin because nobody is fat, but not as hot as Swedish girls. It’s pretty damn cold there, but I really enjoyed the city. Great breakdown of Oslo!
Hi guys. Thank you for writing this post. I’m traveling to Oslo first week of May. Where is the best place to meet students girls on Friday, Saturday night. I’m asking because I heard some clubs can be funny about letting girls in who are under 23.
I wish you had written this last year before I went…The place was very boring to me. I spent 4 days there and left and swore to never go back…very expensive also..I had better luck in Sweden.
I am African and friends told me that Scandinavian women love black guys because of the obvious “apparently” LOL…well, I did not get much luck in Oslo.
Maybe next time…I am off to Senegal next. I have a home there..you should visit…be my guest.
Hey dude, if you don’t mind me asking…
Liberia is on of the poorest country in West Africa.. how did you afford to get to Oslo?
Ummm..I left Liberia when I was 14 due to the war, studied abroad, got my MBA from Harvard, started a company in the US, sold it and now I do PE investment work in Africa (Senegal, Nigeria, Uganda, Liberia, Ghana…) and I have traveled extensively…
Because Liberia is a poor country does not mean every Liberia is poor…
Well if it’s any consolation I hear Taylor got found guilty just today.!
Ps- I know not every Liberian is poor of course, but few can afford to travel.
Hey Akim are you still around. I would like to link up with you.
wow you rate Oslo higher for pick up ladies, then togo, gambia and ukraine…..you must really know your game with scandinavien girls….
came across your blog whilst trying to find a good city for a stag do!!
cant believe I didnt come across this earlier!!
This is stuff of LEGENDS dude.
Mind helping me out? a mate of mine is getting married, where would you recommend for me and 5 friends to go on a stag do in October? Can you recommend somewhere,(apart from Krakow) where chicks are hot, good nightlife for the time of year? possibly where you wont find other stag parties?
Ok I have some friends in Oslo and spent 2 weeks there for the holidays a few years ago. If you know a local it is even easier. We stayed at a house just on the edge of the city where she was housesitting, me my friend and her friend who was also female. Me and two Norwgian ladies who were quite attractive. Night 1 was just hanging out. Night 2 asked if I could roll, why yes, after getting nice and ripped we played strip poker and then I had fun with both for three straight nights. New Years Eve they hooked up with different guys, left me at a fiends house and easy enough to hook up again. In 2 weeks in Norway 4 different girls. amazing country but way way expensive. 4th hook up was a nice looking girl who worked at teh Burger King of all places, went several times and second to last night there met her for drinks and a good time was had. But yes Norwegian girls are a bit broader but well endowed and very adventurous.
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.
what do you mean by this? you said hash in both sentences so it doesn’t make sense.
The best looking girls in Oslo are Swedes? Well, I think many will disagree on that. I hardly believe any non-Scandinavian are able to see the difference between Norwegian and Swedes. Ask any Swedish male and they will probably say that the Norwegian girls are the best looking. That’s my experience anyway.
come to the caribbean ..Trinidad and Tobago. for Carnival.ur promised a blast!!
Stumbled across this. As a Norwegian lady I smiled through most of what you wrote – pretty spot on!
But had to comment re your evening with the two ladies. Think you were more being played than being the player. 🙂 Pretty common girl friends out on town will call dibs on a guy, but pretty different rules than most places. The dibs doesn’t have a long life. Good looking guy and the conceding friend will set the deadline tight, and it needs to be pretty clear the deal will be closed. That’s why the first girl was coming on to you so fast. Another difference in dibs rules: the conceding girl is allowed to run interference, and more subtly seduce the guy. It wasn’t cock-blocking – it was a raunchy game / competition between the girls. And it often results in crazy nights!
“They actually behave like guys when it comes to sex.” Spot on!
Amazing experiences guys! I am travelling to Norway for 2 months! Mostly will be in Bergen! Any advice’s?
Why would you BUY water in Norway for anything but a bottle to store tapwater in?
Where did you stay? Im going next month (February 2015). Any tips on solo travel from OSL airport? First solo trip, pretty exited. Are the people there opening and cool with black guys.
Everything what was said is very true. I spent 6 weeks in Oslo, I could walk there for hours, and 99% ladies were so beautiful, I slipped and falled on sidewalk so many times( it was winter) I even didn’t see so many beauties in Russia, I also been traveling a lot, I guess the Norwegian ladies just need someone with good maniers , so be a gentlemen , and you can get far.
It’s easy to get from airport to Oslo, just after customs, make a right and you will see train calls Flytoget, and for 180kr it takes you directly to downtown, forget about cab, the train takes about 15-20 min to get downtown, actually all trains are so organized and on time, it’s very easy to get around also the trams , they are good transportation as well, good luck!!!!
How you getting on trunks, are you there yet?
Hello i sell the best weed in Oslo
Amnezia haze quality like a coffeshop in Netherland.
Send me message:
normal deal face to face bro!
I’m from Oslo. Interesting to read how people from other places perceive my hometown.
You are pretty spot on in your review. But I think maybe you had a little luck with making out with two girls at the same time. Can’t really say I’ve seen that a lot here. I suspect they were drunk? 😛 You probably got some points for being foreigner too, as Norwegian women love to meet foreigners.
I think Norwegian women are extremely beautiful in appearance. A Norwegian blonde women that take care of herself, is feminine and are naturally beautiful. Oh my god! Like the blogger you use as example in this post. Not much can beat that!
The sad part however is that so many Norwegian women have lost just that, their femininity. So many talk, act and behave like men.They might be beautiful in looks, but that doesn’t help much when you talk, act and behave like a man.
I see so many women back home that have so much potential, but they fuck it up because of the reason above.
Norwegian men that finds a wife abroad becomes more and more normal these days, and for a reason.
Just my take on it.
