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

Go to Bygdøy by bus or bike and spend a day on the beach. Lots of people enjoy jogging there, sand volleyball, swimming in the fjord. There are also few museums there. I specially recommend the Folkemuseet - the history of Norway in architecture, way of living thru centuries. Perfect place if you have children with you, as they can... More

In addition to the museums, Bygdøy is also a popular recreational area during summer offering beaches, a beach volleyball court and a beach restaurant at Huk. There are also a few great trails both for cycling and walking.

We took the bus (I forget what number - it was 30, 31, or 32) from the city center (by the main train station) to the area by the Maritime, Kon-Tiki and Fram museums. We saw all 3 and then walked to the Viking ship museum. I really liked the Fram and Kon-Tiki museums - both presented their stories very... More

The peninsula has lovely walks through the trees. I imagine it's very popular in the summer but we virtually had it to ourselves on a mid-week day in February. Worth visiting the museums on the peninsula too.

Lovely place to walk around with a mix of forrest and beach. The beach is really packed during the summer as its very accessible by bus from Oslo centre.

This peninsula hosts several very nice museums that happen to all be included on the Oslo Pass. We visited the Viking Ship museum, the Kontiki museum, the Maritime Museum and the Fram museum. All are worthwhile to visit and the Fram museum, especially has a lot of details of the expedition.

Went there in early Jan 2015 - some great views but really quite quiet and somewhat boring. Lots of ship musea, mostly worth spending 10mins in!

Went to this place by ferry from City Centre. Visited 1-2 museums but then again returned to the peninsula in cycle. This time took off roads and it was simply paradise!

This is truly a paradise for a tourist. Only a few kilometers from the center of Oslo you find nature, the folk museum, viking ships, the Kon-Tiki museum and much more. Take bus no 30 from Jernbanetorget or Oslo City Hall.
