My perfect FT Weekend would be...

A stroll around the city of Oslo from the waterfront to the bohemian charms of grunerlokke and back for dinner

Beautifully crisp and clean Oslo would be my choice for a perfect weekend. Following a healthy Scandinavian breakfast at the Thon hotel opposite the opera house, a stroll up to the grunerlokke district would allow for the more bohemian aspects of the city to be enjoyed before returning to the waterfront and a gentle cruise around the islands in the bay. Dinner at stadholder gaarden with its smoked apple sauce to round off the day. Sunday would be spent in and around the galleries by the waterfront and at the opera house with a walk around its expanse to watch the last of the Nordic sun before a smorgasbord supper.
