Beautiful....an extraordinary trip by sea. Scenic, stunning...seeing Oslo from the water first really set up our trip.

Maybe the best way to explore the Oslo region and Oslo Fjord. Find yourself quite spot, which there are tons of, and look out for in/out sailings.

Norway struck by surprise as a lovely beautiful destination, the mountains, the lakes and the small little islands. The people are very friendly and scenery is amazing.
