The fjord is not too impressive but it is just a pleasant boat ride. Choose a seat with shade because the crew will not cover the front part of the boat

On a sunny day, this fjord is beautiful and if you'e purchased a 72 hour Oslo Pass you can take a cruise for about an hour across some of the key stops in the city. It's also a great way to get to the museums on Bygdoy. It's best seen from out on the water.

We took a boat trip out into the fjord using our Oslo pass and it was great because you get a perspective of Oslo from the fjord and how important it has been. The islands round the fjord are so natural and appealing.Well worth a visit.

This is a cheap option to visit either Oslo or Copenhagen or both. We took the boat from Oslo to Copenhagen and back, two nights, and spent the day in Copenhagen. It was a trip for me and my daughter who is 8, with my best friend and her son who is also 8. Our cabin was tiny and shabby... More

The Oslo Fjord doesn't have the high cliffs of Fjords in the Western part of Norway, but its a beautiful body of water where the big white clouds literally touch the water. The water is deep blue. The best and least expensive way to tour the Fjord is to buy a ferry ticket rather than pay for a tour boat.... More

We bought a 24 hour ticket for the ferries and set off from Oslo to Lindoya, walked across the island to catch another ferry to Hovedoya. There are lots of beaches on this island and the remains of a monastery. We had to then catch a ferry back to Oslo for the ferry to Gressholmen. We again walked across the... More

What a great trip to make. Just hope on a boat from the harbour and enjoy the scenary. Mind blowing islands and summer houses. The trip is 2 hours long and it is worth every penny.

We took the boat from pier, tickets are sold at the stop and is easy to find. nothing special about the boat, bathroom and soft drinks available on board though. The trip however is gorgeous it takes you around the Fjords and your get to see the main attractions from the water.
