Enjoy the number of options for entry points and beaches on the fjord. So many islands to visit and completely open for all size of boat. Truly a wonderful way to cap a tour of Bygdøy with a swim too!

I "made" the Oslo Fjord in sunny weather and with a dead calm sea on a Color Line cruise from Kiel to Oslo. Of speciel interest to me was the narrowest point, Dröbak, where the German cruiser Blücher was sunk on April 9 1940, when the Germans invaded Norway.

Oslo is the fjord, and if you streach it, the surroundings with a sea view. This was the ancient highway and again, new congestion is pushing commuters to sea. Here is where we spend free time doing watersports, fishing, or just walking the shores. Any beach you find will be artificial, because there is not much sand, and the stones... More

I have lived in Oslo for many years now, originally growing up west in Norway in a spectacular nature with fjords, glaciers and high rised mountains the nature in Oslo might not be as "breath taking" - but - it is SO nice to live in the capital and still having easy access to the nature - and to the...

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
