One of most delightful, romantic two-wheel rides in Oslo. Lush woods, park-like countryside, view of the sea, swimming areas, historic buildings and the royal cows are some of the sights to see along the way. Arrive from Aker Brygge via the 3-km cycle route along Frognerstranda to Hengesengveien, Bygdoy. Continue to Holsts vei - Rideveien - Huk - P.T. Mallingsvei - Langviksvei - Huk Aveny - Museumsveien - Wedels vei - Dronning Biancas vei Distance: 7 km Incline: insignificant Roadway: primarily fine gravel roads

Nice scenery and plenty of museums to look around. I'd recommend the Fram & Kon-Tiki museums. It is also a quite easy and convenient to go there, you can take either a mini cruise hop on hop off (which we did) or a bus.

Foresty peinnsula overlooking Oslo. Elaborate Folk Museum containing different types of houses (all wooden) from different regions and periods. A must. See this museum before you go on traveling in Norway - here you will learn the "language" of wood constructions, the hows and whys.

This Peninsula has several Museums to offer and each one of them is extremely nice. You can travel to this place by Boat or by Bus - Boat travel is more scenic and enjoyable. If you have a day pass or travel card, you can hop between the museums using the Bus

We travelled out to Bygdoy pronounced Bigday and had a great time on the peninsula. There is a lot to see and plenty of venues around this site and has been well developed as a venue by the Norweigians.

Unmissable if you like boats,ships and maritime museums. Visited the Fram, Kon Tiki and Viking Ships museums. Didn't have enough time to go to the maritime museum. Used the Oslo Pass to travel to and access these museums.

Great place to visit on a sunny day. There are many museums which are within walking distance from each other. For example, the Kon Tiki and Fram museums are right next to eachother and can both be visited in an afternoon. Views from the end of peninsula back at the city are also nice.

The trip to the island by ferry or bus is easy to do so don't be put off. We went twice. The museums are excellent in their different ways. The Viking longboats are interesting as history, and the Fram and Kontiki museums really get across the planning and experience of Arctic exploration and crossing the ocean on a raft. The... More

Here is a little bit of paradise in Oslo, Norway: an upscale neighborhood in a beautiful locale with 5 first rate museums to visit. You can't lose! Take the city ferry (included with the Oslo Pass) for a lovely ride across the bay.

Must-see when you are in Oslo. You can easily get to Bygdoy by boat or bus.The Norsk Folksmuseum - open air museum is great! You have an interesting overview of the Norwegian history. The stave church and the farms are beautiful. 15 minute walk to the Fram Museum, Viking Ship Museum. Keep in mind you have to pay entrance fees... More

Situated on Bogdoy, this Museum salutes the spirit of Norway's most famous adventurer - Thor Heyerdahl. It boasts of his courage by exhibiting both the Balsa Wood raft "Kon-Tiki" on which he sailed the Pacific Ocean from Peru to Polynesia in 101 days 1947, and the Reed boat "Ra-II" in which he covered the 6000 Kms across Atlantic Ocean in...
