A 2 hour journey around the Oslo Fjord takes to out to see a bit of what else Oslo has to offer in terms of landscape. If you have time, go western Norway to really experience the fjords.

Norway and Oslo are undoubtedly expensive: Beautiful, different - unique - but expensive! But there ARE areas of Oslo that cost nothing to visit, give one a sense of the sea, clean water and 'a life on the ocean waves': The islands in the Oslo fjord! Reachable by boat from 'Vippetangen' - the jetty right by the Copenhagen ferry -... More

We had high hopes of our boat trip down the Oslo Fjord to Drogbar, it having been strongly recommended. We bought our ticket the day before but still had to queue for 40 minutes in the hot sun to get on, before being elbowed out of the way by determined Norwegian pensioners. The journey was a real disappointment, with nothing... More

This is something that has to be done when in Norway. Tickets can be purchased just before, no need to book in advance.

Beautiful but the fjords in Bergen are better. Try the cruises. Great place to go for a swim in the summer.

When you go down to the wharf in Oslo, you'll see the ferries out to Bygdøy and the museums, and right in the same area you'll find numerous fjord cruises. We took a 3-hour one that left at 7 pm and got back at 10 - just now, in July, so it was still very much daytime in a Oslo!... More

Oslo fjord is really beautiful. I recommend you to go there by boat if you have a chance. It is difficult to imagine that you are so close to the capital of Norway.

To experience the Oslo Fjord you need a boat, private or, just take one of the smaller public ferries. They accept you daily/weakly tram/buss-tickets in Oslo, so you don´t actually need to pay for them.

There are various ways top explore the Oslo Fjord from very expensive (but often very nice) dinner cruises (probably a prawn buffet with expensive drinks) to joining one of the many commuter ferries. This includes taking a fast boat to Drobak (with the Oskarsborg fortress) which is a nice excursion in itself. Whichever method you choose, you will have a... More

The views are magnificent as the boat crawls along the shore from the port of Oslo leaving from in front of the Rathaus (town hall) area. great aspects of the city from the fjord. A very pleasant sunny afternoon with great scenery. Well worth doing
