Oslo itself sits at the head of the Oslofjord, and absolutely the best way to see the whole of the fjord is from the deck of the Pearl Seaways, the ferry that plies between Copenhagen and Oslo every day - or rather, every night. I travelled in both directions in mid April, arriving at Oslo in very bleak and atmospheric... More

We went on a boat ride (2 hours) around the Fjord, which was great. Apart from it being slightly cold, we had to move inside. The tour we went on (get tickets from the pier) was great. The tour guides were very helpful and pointed out attractions and great places to go around the fjord.

I just love this city....... the Buildings are beautiful, the city is safe, wonderful restaurants, museums, opera center........walk for ever if you choose. Train to ski slopes .... or any where else you would like to go. It is pricey but my heart melts when I go there.

When I think of fjords, I think of tall cliffs covered with greenery but this I didn't really feel was a fjord tour. It seemed more like a bay cruise around the islands with not so great commentary. Some of the houses that were built on the edges of cliffs were cool to see, but the tour was far too... More

A good place to walk and chill. It's located near the oslo city hall.. and not far from any other attractions. I enjoyed the view both day and night. Although I wish I could take some boat tours. But it's closed.

Oslo is a must-see place in Europe. Period. Although it's nicer and more illustrious to visit during the summer months (June -August) it was pleasant and sunny in April. Very bearable. The Oslo fjord was very nice. I can only imagine what the other top fjords in western Norway look like?... If planning a trip to Oslo on a budget,... More

We travelled fro Copenhagen to Oslo by a cruise ship as a result we crossed the whole length of the Oslo fjord. The good part is that when we enter the Oslo fjord the sun had already risen and we took an infinite number of photos. Try to include this in your next trip to Norway or Denmark.

It's rare to find a capital city with such a walkable scale downtown, let alone one situated on a beautiful fjord. You can tour downtown and stop by the lovely port to purchase fresh seafood for dinner. Don't miss the Opera House - stunning modern architecture beautifully situated on the fjord!
