We dashed out of our hotel at Karl Johans gate after arrival in Olso and sought to do a couple of things before daylight was over. The cruise passing by the Astrup Fearnley Museum, Kon-Tiki Museum, Akershus Fortress and the shoreline of Oslo was fascinating. Early sunset was a beauty. Enjoyable but it was cold at - 2.

Always a pleasure to get out in the Oslofjord in summer time for swimming, fishing (tasty cod, mackerel, herring etc.), sailing or just chillin' with a nice meal (especially shrimps and cava) and some relaxing music.

The Oslo Fjord is beautiful, but not as dramatic as other fjords. There are inexpensive 2 hour boat tours which include a guide who provides (live) commentary along the way, and answers questions. We did the fjord tour on our first day, as it was an easy, non-challenging activity to enjoy in our unavoidable jet-lagged state. The tour also gave... More

I would recomend to either take the 2 hour Fjord boat (nice guiding) og one of the boats thats goes out to Hovedøya or landøya as an alternative if you are in Oslo - specially as an alternative to often more expencive trips that are arranged from the cruise ships. Theer are also nice trips out to the Bygdøy (Folkemuseum,... More

This is a good tour around the islands to see the pretty summer houses on the islands and learn about the local history.

Choose a boat that has a deck so you can be in the open air and not locked into a glass cage. Fjords were beautiful. Good tour guide. Friendly and humorous.

With calm water we set off from the Town Hall, via the Opera House, to Bygdoy - a very picturesque boat ride through the harbour of Oslo. We were able to sit outside, in late October, without being cold.

We came in on ferry and the sights along the fjord were a nice entrance to the city. See if you can read up on the different lighthouses and buildings you'll pass. They're interesting.
