Oslo does have occasional poor air quality days (I think it's supposed to be worse in winter), but anyone who has lived anywhere with even moderate air pollution will laugh themselves silly at what is considered 'poor' here. I think it is actually just fine. - Jun 2015

The air is very clean, but very, very dry. I have never seen so much dust. - May 2013

Good. My daughter has asthma and has had no problems while living here. However, the air is very dry (even though it rains and snows a lot). My younger daughter and I have had problems with eczema - many Norwegians also have problems with this. - Aug 2011
