The Oslo fjord is very beautiful and the islands near the city are all accessible with a public transportation day ticket or an Oslo City Pass. Some of the ferries visit several of the near islands and you can get a water tour of the inner fjord on one boat in about an hour--or you can get off and explore... More

A very nice easy way for the tourist to learn more about Oslo and the Norwegian way of life. The boat tour around the Oslo Fjord is not spectacular, but it is pleasant an informative. Our tour guide was smart, knowledgeable, vivid. with a delightful amount of self-irony. There is not much one can do aboard but sit and look... More

We spend almost every weekend going for walks in the forests surrounding Oslo. Take your pick - there's a forest with its own unique experience in any direction. Easily accessible by either subway or bus from early in the morning to late in the evening - late evening in summer when it's still light is amazing. There are parking lots... More

Unfortunately not many people know that you can use your regular tram or metro ticket to get on board on one of the several ferries that will take you to the inner part of the fjord. From here you can choose to stay for as long as you want on an island, before you go back or travel to the... More

Our hotel was situated near the city center. We took the train from the airport to central station. The train reps were very helpful, getting our tickets and directing us in any way. Train extremely clean, and comfortable. Suitable areas to stow large luggage near seating and carry on above.

Gives you a wonderful impression on the fjord and summer/weekend pass time of Norvegians. Pictoresque with plenty of motives. Took the bus back, but then you see the backside, which is not as idyllic as the the front facing the fjord.

I highly recommend it. It was 2 hours of total relaxation in the most stunning surroundings. It is a perfect way of seeing "skærgaarden" and get an impression on Oslo and the maritime culture in Norway.

It was a gorgeous sunny day until my scheduled 2-hour cruise time, which then the clouds formed a shield blocking the sunlight. But the gray skies actually accentuated the beautiful surroundings and gave a mystified feeling. So even if the weather may seem unfavorable, don't miss out for the beauty of Oslo Fyord outshines anyway. I loved the traditional colors... More

Initially, I was hesitant to take time off of my schedule to see the fjord, but every ounce of doubt I had about this place was taken away the moment I realised I was seeing one of the most stunning things about nature and our planet. The boat ride was good and the the tour guide was excellent. The price... More
