Maldives has one of the most attractive locations of any city, on an islet at the head of an atoll. It has a most distinctive charm and character with its brightly decorated houses and narrow alleyways, and there’s a deliciously cosy atmosphere about the older parts of the city. The 17th century Friday Mosque and huge Islamic Centre are just two of the must-see attractions in Maldives, along with the old Sultan’s Palace.
Oslo Airport is not just a transport hub, but thanks to its extensive art exhibitions and displays, practically an art gallery too! Qatar Airways flights from Oslo take you from this northern location to a number of Middle Eastern destinations. Located just 19 miles from the centre of Oslo at Gardermoen, the airport offers passengers a smooth, relaxed and distinctly Scandinavian experience.

Arriving in Hulhulé after a flight to the Maldives with Qatar Airways, the first thing that will strike you is that this genuinely is a tropical island paradise.
Largely unknown among tourists until the 1970s, the Maldives are today one of the top luxury destinations in the world. Crystal clear oceans, white sandy beaches and swaying palm trees – the Maldives are the epitome of a tropical holiday destination.
The collection of over 1,100 coral islands means that the most common method of transport is by boat or seaplane. Island hopping is a great way to experience the delights above water.
Under the waves there is a second paradise waiting to be explored, and the Maldives offers some of the best diving and snorkelling in the world.
The Maldives is different to many destinations in that there are relatively few attractions to visit on land. The main attractions of the islands are natural, rather than man-made, so to discover the very best of the islands’ riches you will need to don a swimsuit and head out with one of the many diving parties to explore the coral reefs.
Filled with brilliantly coloured fish and a wealth of natural wonders, the waters of the Maldives offer a rich tapestry of aquatic colour and beauty.
If you’re not a swimmer or prefer to stay on dry land then a visit to the nation’s capital island of Malé for some casual shopping and to see the ‘real’ Maldives away from the custom-made resorts of the islands.
Flights to the Maldives with Qatar Airways land at Malé International Airport. Visa restrictions for entry into the country will depend on your country of origin, length of stay and whether your trip is for business or pleasure.
