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.

A nice little walk across to the peninsula, to see the boats coming in is worth spending time on in Oslo. Very nice location and worth a visit

I was in Oslo for 2 days, and decided to take the boat to Bygdoy for a few hours. It has several museums of the "maritime variety", which is normally not my thing, but I actually quite enjoyed it because of the cultural aspects. Specifically, the museum with the viking ships, the Conticki and the Maritime museum were all very... More

We loved going to Bygdoy. The Folk Museum had folk dancers which we enjoyed and I felt like a kid going on the horse drawn cart. You could spend the whole day there. The other thing I enjoyed most was taking the ferries to other areas of Oslo. Since the weather was great there were a lot of people going... More

We only had an afternoon for sightseeing in Oslo so chose to take the ferry (NOK50 ea return) for the 15 min trip across the harbour. There was about a 10 minute walk up the hill past the Folkemuseum to the Viking Ship Museum. This was well worth visiting. Had we the time, we would have also walked across to... More

A pleasant day can be spent on Bygdoy with the Norsk Folk Museum, Viking ship, Fram, Kon-Tiki and Maritime Museums. Trave there by boat from Pipavika Quay near the City Hall

The Bygdoy Peninsula is a quiet neighborhood in Oslo that contains several interesting museums such as the Folk museum (a must see), the Viking Museum, the Kon Tiki Museum and others. It can be reached by a nice short boat ride from the city. I would recommend spending a day on the peninsula visiting the various museums and walking between... More
