The fjord is very beautiful to see. In very close distance there is the nobel peace center, shopping and the old fort. There is enough room to enjoy not only a walk, but all the sculptures in the area as well.

The Oslofjord was one of the highlights of my recent visit to Scandinavia. It was a bright Autumn day, the waterway was calm, and the leaves were beginning to turn along the shore. It was a magical experience with great views of inlets and islands, small villages, and sheltered coves. Mists clung onto the hilltops and the scenes were timeless.... More

Most charming and relaxed small old town with waterfront just in the middle of the Oslo fjord. Ask your guide how to go to Drøbak. If you want to see the Oscarsborg take the little ferry from Drøbak to the island where the second world war really started for the Norwegian king the 9th of April 1940.

It is a fairly boring boat ride to see what you have previously seen walking through the city, and other than that, countryside homes.

Carina, the Russian tour guide raised in Italy, was descriptive and thorough on this tour. She seemed to cover the main sites and time it really well so she could give us the commentary, we could observe the sites/scenery and take photos.

We took a mini hop on hop off cruise along the Oslo fjord to all the islands. It is advisable to do this close to evening when you can see the sunset as well while being on the ferry. Good experience!

We hiked up Trolls Tongue (Trolltunga) which is well worth the effort and pain!! The views are spectacular. It takes aprox 10 hours from start to finish so not a light walk.

Hmmm, in my mind this is NOT a Fjord, but more of an Archipelago or Channel leading to the sea. Pretty but not what you are thinking about when it comes to Norway and the mountainous fjords.

It was just disappointing. The Fjord is possibly the best publicized attraction in Oslo but it was just so underwhelming. Our boat guide was knowledgable, and interesting - but there just wasn't enough to keep it going. The boat is fairly slow, so the views are fairly consistent (5 minutes later you're still looking at the same island). You're effectively... More
