We booked a two hour trip around the Oslo Fjord and thoroughly enjoyed the wonderful scenery, would recommend to everyone. The open nature of the boat does leave you exposed in cold weather and we warn that it's at least ten degrees colder in mid fjord than back at the harbour, wrap up warm!!!

If you can get up high in the city to have a look back over the fjord its more than worth it. Even on the grey day that we visited there was just a chink of sunlight flashing through the clouds to make it running. Can be seen from all over the city so pick you spot!!

This is what we liked the most in Oslo. Despite of being winter it was ok as they provided us with blankets for the cold. In a sunny day you can get a good impression of the summer life of the locals going to that many islands and enjoying the sea. A must do when visiting the city!!

The day we went around the Oslo fjord, the tour boat was cancelled due to freezing in the fjord. Instead we took the ferry to the islands which was great value for money. We got to see the whole fjord and many of the villages on the islands on a one hour circular tour. About a 10th of the price... More

Take the boat from Aker brygge at 15:10 and get off at the little village of Vollen 25 minutes later. It's a great idea to spend the trip out on the top deck to enjoy the wonderful views of the inner Oslo fjord. Spend an hour and 20 minutes walking round the village, visiting the fascinating boutiques and artists' workshops... More

So we were supposed to be on the water for 2 hrs but it only lasted one hour, it would be nice if they had someone talk to tell us a thing or 2 but yea ... it was a beautiful view and you'll get lots of nice pics.

Come layered up, and you'll have a great time. There is very little shelter from the cold Nordic weather abroad, and if you want to see anything you've got to stay outdoors. Try to get to the boat ahead of the crowds though as the best seats go immediately. Seating could be better organised. Otherwise, a good insight into life... More

We took the public transport boat from Oslo that goes around the small islands around and the fjord. It was really nice journey allowing us the enjoy the beauty of nature. Its not an impressive fjord with huge rocks and smooth water, its more like lake but its a must when you are in Oslo
