I accidentally missed to boat to the peninsula, so I simply walked around. I ended up walking all through Bygdoy, and it was a really excellent experience.
Such a beautiful place, a small island 10 minutes with the ferry from Oslo. All the museums is there, Fran, Viking, Norwegian Folk Museum, Kon-Tiki etc... So tranquile with a lot of restaurants, cafe kai place to relax. Surely worth a visit!
