Will & Jada Smith Host Nobel Peace Concert in Oslo
With summer officially over, it's time to start thinking about your Christmas travel plans (you can never start too early, as far as we're concerned). In case you're stumped about where to greet Santa, might we suggest a jaunt to Oslo, Norway? Besides all the good-looking blonds and crisp temperatures, Oslo has tons to offer the wintertime traveler. Not the least among these options is the Nobel Peace Prize Concert on December 11. Celebrating this year's laureates, the concert will take place in Oslo Spektrum stadium and include performances by country singer Toby Keith, disco diva Donna Summer, World Saver Wyclef Jean, and Malian jazz duo Amadou & Mariam. The event will be hosted by uber-couple Will & Jada Smith who will leave their warm Hollywood nest to brave the Norwegian winter.
But how can a traveler without access to millions enjoy the the world's most expensive city? Easily, it turns out--with our insider tips. Winter sports enthusiasts will love Oslo's miles of ski runs, fjords, cross-country trails, and crisp temperatures. Click on Visit Oslo for more info and special offers. Direct flights from the east coast price under $600 on SideStep. Or fly Iceland Air and take advantage of its Stopover option to explore two destinations for the cost of one flight. Just as exciting as seeing Will & Jada? Totally. Better than the "Carlton Dance"? Not quite.
