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

We got the Oslo pass and saved money on transportation as well as entrance fees to all 3 boat museums here. Take the boat over as it is a nice, pretty ride. If you are into rowing, the boat stops right at the Oslo rowing club house. The members were really gracious and gave us a tour!

Keep walking and soon you'll come to the charming Norsk Folkemuseum, with the Stave Church from Gol, built in 1200, and the Apartment Bldg. Wessels gate 15, displaying 8 apartments featuring the buildings residents and their lifestyles over 130 years. You will feel as though you've stepped back into the last century.

It was fun and all (nice beaches, very crowded with locals), and we enjoyed the Vikingship museum. But we like to explore and we easily got lost with no signage.

This is where the nautical museums are to be found, the Viking museum, the Fram, the Kon Tiki and the Maritime museum. Buses, ferries and hop on hop off buses all stop here. Besides the museums there is a small park with nautical themed statues and relics giving a great view over the Oslo waterfront and fjord. Further round is... More

This is accessible by a short ferry ride, which is included in your Oslo Pass. There are beautiful private homes, as well as museums here.

Bydogy is a museum goers paradise. Take the ferry from the City Hall and get off at the second stop and take in the Kon-Tiki museum. Walked around the bay to the Viking Ship Museum and a short walk to the Folk Museum. Can be expensive but a tip would be to buy an Oslo Pass for the day and... More

I took the ferry over to the Bogdoy Peninsula where the main museums are. It is only 10 minutes on the boat but interesting and nice to approach from the water. There are two stops, the first to the Norwegian Folk Museum and the Viking Museum; the second where the Fram and Kon Tiki Museum are. The first time I... More

Definitely worth the trip. Don't skip the Norwegian cultural museum, you could spend more than 2 hours walking around the grounds getting a glimpse of how was life throughout different decades.

This is where the majority of the must see museums are in Oslo. Take the Ferry to Stop 1, see the museums, take Bus 30 to the Kon-Tiki Museum, and then take the Ferry back. Also see the gorgeous mansions on the peninsula.
