If you have the chance to take the three-hour evening cruise held during the summer months, don't hesitate. We were extremely lucky as the glorious weather extended into mid-September (2014) and the cruise was held over an additional week, (it normally ends on 7 Sept). We enjoyed what, I think, was the last one of the year. We sailed on... More

A very large, busy stretch of water leading from the North Sea to the sea port and Norway's Capitol, Oslo. Both sides are lined with private homes as well as wonderful villages and towns each with their own character and flavor. A boat tour is reccomended to see it all from the water.

Booked through the Norway in a Nutshell -- so much easier, and I think cost about the same as if you tried to book all this yourself. Went Oslo to Myrdal to Flam -- best seats on left. Definitely try to stay overnight in the fjords...can't image doing it in one day. Don't stay in Flam...dull place. I took ferry... More

I only had 24 hrs in Oslo so hopped on a 2 hr boat ride in the harbour. The views are amazing and the commentary gives you a good history into and explaination of the Scandinavian way of life.

Although easy to say, this really was the highlight of our long weekend in Oslo. We went on the 3 hour evening fjord cruise. Tickets were purchased from the ticket booth on pier 2 at 18:00 with the cruise leaving at 19:00 from pier 3. The vessel was called Kristianna, the original name for Oslo I believe. We left Oslo...

Took a relatively small tour boat in the rain to see the fjord out of Oslo. Great islands and small summer houses. Rain added drama to the setting. Was a very pleasant tour from the back of the Oslo city hall.

This two-hour tour is Oslo's version of the harbor cruise so many other cities offer. It is interesting however and gives you a good introduction to the waterfront area and surrounding small islands. Worth the trip.

Spent three days in this wonderful city. Loved the waterfront, the castle, the Folk and Viking museum, the ski jump. A beautiful lake near where we were staying where the family had a great time swimming. Wonderful transport system made it so easy to get around. Can't wait to go back.

The Oslo Fiord has a number of beautiful beaches in naturalistic surroundings. My favourite is Paradisbukta on the island Bygdøy. Soft sand and breathtaking view of the fiord. Much better than overcrowded nearby beach Huk.
