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

Upper-class neighbourhood. Can also be reached by boat from near the... More

This is a lovely area of Oslo that holds some of the city's most interesting museums and it is easy access via ferry to the downtown.

It Is a beautiful peninsula where the King and Queen lives, places for nice swims for free, beautiful private gardens - but except from that you do feel excluded. It is museums and greens. But you have to live there to feel it

Easy to get to the Bygdoy Peninsula by boat from the docks at the base of the fortress. The Viking Museum, Fram Museum, Maritime Museum, and Kon-Tiki Museum are located here. Don't miss any of these museums. Worth your time!

The ferry rip to the peninsula was great using our Oslo Pass. We were able to see the Oslo sights from the water on this short very ride. Would definitely recommend visiting all the museums on the peninsula before returning to Oslo. It would be easy to skip the Holocaust museum as it is a bit off the path from... More

We took a trip to Bygdoy which was easy on the tram from the main station. We wanted to see the Viking ship museums and the Norwegian folk museum, both are worth a trip out thee and the buses ran pretty frequently.

Great cruise, but don't go on a cold day. You will wish you used all the blankets they provided (thankfully)!. But even that won't be enough!
