Ferry to Viking Museum

Quick and easy way to get to location for Viking Museum (and others). slightly expensive for the trip.

This trip takes you 2 hours round the bay of Oslo with a narritive guide and music It travels past the opera house giving you a great view from the water. It had nice little touches such as the blankets they offered for customers

Very sweet staff and lovely food, but it was way too many people stuffed together on this boat. Especially when you think about that people are supposed to eat, and that the food isn't served, it's a buffet. You will get to see beautiful scenery in the Oslo fjord. The live jazz band was awesome, I'm too sad we couldn't... More

We really enjoyed the 2 hour roundtrip with a lovely young and charming crew in a 60 year old wooden boat. Lovely sceenery and beautiful Islands we were passing by.

We went on the evening Fjord cruise. It was delightful. The views were spectacular and you got to see everything around the fjord. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. The shrimp buffet was delicious. The only reason I took off a star was the fact that there was no option aside from shrimp, and my friend is allergic to... More

On a perfect spring day this cruise on the Oslo harbour was superb. Got great views of everything in and around Oslo and went at a very relaxing pace. The commentary was superb with all the information you needed and I would highly recommend it as a thing to do in Oslo. This is one of the most beautiful cities... More

We went on the 2hour fjord sightseeing boat tour. We paid around 260 NOK each which seemed reasonably for a 2 hour guided tour. However, once on the boat we noticed the bar was extremely expensive! We paid 160 NOK for 2 half pints of local beer (roughly £7/8 for a half!!!!!). A part from the on board drink prices... More

The boat is beautiful but the "tour" was quite boring. The commentary was minimal and focused on pointing out construction and what was going to be there in the future. The highlight of the trip was the float past the opera house and a view you couldn't get from a land tour. Other than that it was a slow float... More

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
