We took the Batservice 2 hour tour to the Oslo Fjord. The boat provided a covered seated area and also an opened area at the back of the boat. The commentary provided was quite humorous and informative. If you are expecting steep mountainsides - then you will be disappointed as it is still quite flat. Interesting bath-houses, summer houses and... More

The two hour sightseeing boat cruise of the Oslo fjords departing from the harbor across from City Hall was definitely the highlight of my trip! Beautiful view of the summer homes along the fjords, as well as incredible views of the city. No trip to Norway would be complete without experiencing the fjords, and this two hour cruise is the...

To come into the Oslo Fjord in the morning with sunshine is for sure a wonderful experience and already worth the trip.You see so many nice houses on the banks of the Fjord

I took a boat over to Bygdoy Peninsula (included in the 72 Hour Oslopass) and despite the cold thoroughly enjoyed sailing between the Islands.

On this occasion, a dismal December day, we were thrilled to encounter the headquarters of the CHRISTIAN RADICH Foundation. This glorious, still proudly in commission square rigger was the star of the 1952 cinemiracle movie "WINDJAMMER" and is still used as a training ship for much of the year while sailing grandly around the fjord when in home harbour ......

Walk around or take the boat to Copenhagen...sunny, warm weather is the best, but spots are good most any time. Just ask for directions.

Take a boat to the island: Line 92 or 93 operates all year from Vippetangen to Hovedøya, Lindøya vest, Nakholmen, Bleikøya, Gressholmen. The best view is during sunset. Boat cost for adult 30 NOK one way. With Oslo Pass it is free. You can purchase hot tea/coffee on the boat for 10 NOK. Upper deck ideal for photo session.

We took an all you can eat shrimp dinner cruise in the fjord. The scenery was jaw-dropping. The shrimp was great, too. I think the next time, we'll do the jazz or blues cruise. However you do it, the Oslo Fjord is a gorgeous must-see.

We took a 3 hour cruise around the Oslo Fjord, booked on the waterfront when we arrived. The price was OK when you consider how expensive everything is in Oslo. We had lovely weather and the views were great, both of the city and the surrounding islands and summer residences. Would highly recommend it as opposed to the small and... More

Yeah, guys. This water is impressive. Also, there are boats/ferries leaving from Oslofjord every 30 mins. If you have Oslo Pass, they are free, so use it to swim to other isles and visit them a bit. There are ferries every 30 mins from these isles too, so don't worry about being stuck on the island. Well, maybe just check... More
