About
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

A family visit to this charming peninsula. Paying at the main car park we headed off to Paradisebukta for the afternoon. Around 20 minutes to walk there.
We found this an excellent beach to relax on and go for a swim in the sea. I found the water warm compared to the NE of Scotland when going for a dip at this time of year.
Clean and tidy, good for a picnic. Recommended on a sunny day.

Well, if you are in Oslo for more than a day or two, this is definitely a place to go ... there is the Viking Ship museum (with the real ships on display!) and the cultural heritage museum ( VERY worthwhile), as well as the Kontiki museum with the raft in all its glory (most interesting to kids between 6 and 12). You can get it all as part of the Oslo card (or whatever it's called now). Very good public transport there and back. You can even take a ferry one way (or both ways). Requires some resilience in terms of walking and going through the exhibits. Not recommended for old or tired people.

Well worth the ferry trip from Oslo over to the Peninsula.
We visited the Viking museum, the Kon Tiki and Fram.
Followed by relaxing hour on the grassy area beside the Fram where there is a small beach for a swim ... lovely on a sunny August afternoon. We opted to swim here rather than walk round to the other beach at Hukodden to save time.

This is a very clever idea 5-6 of the major museums and attraction are on this peninsula. It is an easy bus ride on the 31 from lots of places in town and the buses run every 15 mins. The Viking museum, Kon Tiki, the Fram and many more are walking distance from each other.

Another iconic place of Oslo, a lot of museums and the King's stables. If want something more into nature you can choose between the beach (best in summer hot days) or the forest.

Recommend that you plan a full day for the several museums there. Delish cafe near the entrance. Viking, Maritime, Folk Village (more than 200 buildings), Stave church, and more. Great place to walk as well. Also paths or roads to beach. To get there, ferry from Oslo's waterfront or public bus. A 1/4 mile walk (hilly) from the ferry landing through a residential neighborhood to the entrance. Visitors with mobility issues should check out access information in advance (is there parking?).

Went to a few of the Museums. The water is so calming and peaceful. If you have time would recommend.

I very much suggest you to take the bus to Bygdoy, you can easily spend a good half day here. 3 museums, the skanzen from where you can take a short walk to visit the summer residence Oscarshall, are all here. You can have lunch at the coffeshop at the skanzen,too.

Manyn of Oslo's museums are lcoated on thsi peninsular including Maritime, Fram, Kontiki, Viking, Folk and Holocaust Centre. In the summer you get a ferry from the docking stations in front of the City Hall (included in your day transport passes (c£9 per day) or in the winter you have to catch the no30 bus which takes around 20 mins from the city centre.
