Flying over Oslo

Anders Edholm

At the end of the Oslofjord, in the southeastern part of Norway, lies its capital city Oslo.  The city was believed to be founded by Vikings in the 11th century.  The center of a metropolitan area of about 1.6 million inhabitats, it's the third-largest city in Scandinavia after Stockholm and Copenhagen.  Contributor Anders Edholm flew a DJI Mavic Pro drone over this remarkable city on one of the great fjords of Norway.  Oslo hosted the 1952 Winter Olympics, the first Winter Games to be held since before World War II.

Located in Norway's capital city Oslo, the Vigeland sculpture park is dedicated to the cycle of life. Each of the over 200 statues in Vigeland park is a moment frozen in time.  The sculpture park is part of Frogner Park, which is situated in the western part of the city.  It is one of the top tourist destinations in Norway's capital, the third-largest of the Scandinavian cities.  Contributor Mohri Films used a drone to create a memorable aerial perspective of the sculptures which populate this impressive Scandinavian park.

Check out these aerial views of the eastern part of Oslo, Norway, compliments of AirVuz contributor and drone pilot kaosolsen.  The Norwegian capital city, Scandinavia's third-largest, sits at the head of the Oslofjord (which is technically a bay not a fjord).  The area covered in the video is known as the Grorud Valley, which is the eastern part of its city.  Once considered somewhat remote from central Oslo, the area has grown significantly and is now home to about 25% of the city's population of about 675,000 as of 2019.

Part of why Oslo, Norway is perenially at the top of the lists of the world's most liveable cities is the 
"green belt" of outdoor recreational areas that surround the Norwegian capital.  These easily accessible lakes, forests, parks, campgrounds, and hiking trails are heavily used by the 1 million+ residents of metropolitan Oslo.  In this video, top AirVuz contributor and drone pilot Mohri Films gives us a bird's eye view of Lake Sognsvann, a small but beautiful lake which is situated just north of the city.

Contributor HaimanAskari used a drone to give us this amazing bird's eye view of Drammen, a small city in southeastern Norway.  It is situated about 40 km (25 mi) southwest of the capital city of Oslo, and is considered part of the Greater Oslo metropolitan area.  It's a port city, at the mouth of the Drammenselva River as it flows into the Dramnmensfjorden which then flows into the Oslofjorden.  The video beautifully captures the heart of the city on the river, just as the sun is beginning to set.
