Oslo is a city in close contact with the nature surrounding it, in fact, most of its 453 square kilometers are forest.  Here moose are commonplace and the whole of the capital is part of Norway's wolf reserve.  There are plenty of interesting sites in walking distance around the city center, however several of the neighborhoods have worthwhile sights and entertainment offerings, so to explore these and the abundant flora and fauna outside the city it is best to take a car hire from Oslo Airport.
