We managed to get booked on an extra trip run on a lovely March day. The boat doesn't exactly speed along but that made it more relaxing and you could take in more. The views were lovely though some a little the same as others but what really made it was the staff. You were free to roam about the... More

It's definitely worth going on an Oslo fjord tour and seeing the area from the water -- there are a lot of interesting homes, small islands in the middle of the fjord with summer homes, etc. that make for lovely photos. The tour itself is only available in the winter Saturdays-Mondays at 10:30 and 13:00. If you take the 10:30... More

We did this two hour cruise yesterday and loved it's! It only runs twice a day sat, sun and mon in the winter, so turn up early to make sure you get on and get a good seat, our boat was busy! Our guide was excellent, very friendly, funny and informative. Some lovely sights, beautiful scenery and houses. We also... More

This was the only tour I found available in November and I did go on it once before when I was in town, but it was worth the repeat. According to the brochure it operates year round. In the colder months it only operates on Saturdays and Sundays, twice a day at 10:30 and again at 1 PM. The 2... More

spending only 2 days in Oslo, we decided to go for a short sightseeing tour in the fjord in the morning. there are different options, however if you're on a tight schedule like we were, then I'd definitely recommend that.. the awesome weather made us enjoy the nice landscape and the tiny colourful houses by the fjord. make sure you...

This is an excellent way to spend two hours on the sea. The service was great. Great sights and the sea wind blowing through your hair. If you want two relaxing hours I recommend the Oslo Fjord sightseeing.

Think carefully before embarking on the 2 hour Oslo Fjord sightseeing tour. The boat itself is functional - it floats, it has seats, an engine, gets you from A to B etc - but 'fairly dated' springs to mind when describing it further and we were packed in tightly so personal comfort was not exactly optimal ! Critically, there are... More

Saw the brochure for the hop on - hop off in our apartment. Looked reasonably priced compared to other trips. Got down to the harbour around 13:00 and took the last trip around. Although we couldn't get off it was a great sail around the islands and Oslo to get a general idea of where things are and a bit... More

Oslo fjord is beautiful and this boat trip gives a lovely introduction to it. There isn't a great deal of commentary but who needs it when there's so much beauty to enjoy. The huge skies with amazing cloud formations and the little islands with their colourful houses don't need a narration. Just loved the peace and beauty.
