We thought this was a nice place to stop for lunch with the opera hall overlooking the fjords. The opera hall itself is a weirdbut wonderful piece of architecture, well worth visiting and walking up to the top to get better view of the fjord. It was a celar day when we visited, and if you are in the area,... More

The Oslofjord in summer, is a must! Grew up here in a boat-family, and there are many islands, protected water, marinas, resturants etc just next to the sea., most of them with free docking. Best tip would be; early, or late seson, take Your bout (or rent one) and just turn of Your engins a few natical miles out from... More

Took friends out to Hovedøya. Allthough all the islands are worth a visit! Had a picnic down by the beach. A very likeable place. Interesting story about the Monastry ruins! Have also been there and visited the new, revamped cafe! Probably my favorite island! The cafe opens for the summer mid May, but you can have picnics there as soon... More

I was lucky to be able to stay in Oslo three times at different periods of the year. I was staying at my son's and was lucky in that I got to live as a Norwegian. The city of Oslo is really beautiful and it has a beautiful waterfront where you can walk and enjoy all the restaurants with their... More

This is one of the best places to see how nature and man can keep life peacefull. Try to go between Aker Brygge and Bigdoy by boat, you will adore!...

There was no guarantee of a boat trip on the Oslo fjords in February, but luckily the ice had broken up enough and we were able to hit the water. A two hour boat trip with an excellent tour guide was a great way to see the fjords. The water was so still, glass like with a thin layer of... More

When the water's calm you see the sky being reflected on it clearly it's almost like looking down at another sky. On a clear starry night or with the northern lights I can't imagine how amazing it would look then.

Seeing the Oslo Fjord from the water allows a different perspective. Something about the fjord with shorelines dotted with colorful houses, small and larger boats, lighthouses and water life, leaves a feeling of the pristine tranquility of the fjord. Beautiful blue with pristine shorelines and crisp cool air, a tour, cruise or a water trip causes you to see the... More

We had a great sunrise and since there was snow on the houses, roads and trees. Everything looked idyllic. Good some great photos. Then we sailed in to a bank of fog. Couldn't see a meter ahead. That's Mother Nature for you. Never know what's going to happen. On the other side of the fog was amazing sunshine and a... More
