Calm and quiet island for some time to reflect
Oct 2019
I did like the Island, however I felt like it was too small to spend time there. Of course size doesn't matter, but when it's so small you can see the start and the end haha.

Nice gem for a break from the city
Jun 2019 • Friends
Only app. 20 mins by boat from Oslo city centre, this small- ish island is a bit quieter than the other islands in the inner Oslo-fjord, and still provides all you need for a perfect little break from it all!
There are nice stops for swimming/ small beaches or from the cliffs, and there are noumerous walkways all over the island for some exploring. The island is part of a nature-reserve (Gressholmen- Rambergøya Naturreservat), and you can se over 160 spieces of birds here! Also a lot of endangered plants and flowers.
There is also a nice and cosy restaurant/ café, with a nice outdoor- area, and also toilets.

There is not much to see on the island but its a bit of Norway how we imagine it to be just 20 minutes away from the city centre, nice beaches and lovely walkways to explore. Would come back as part of island hopping the in Oslo Fjord.

Little gem in the fjord
Jun 2018
What a gem!
If you want to escape the city, but the other islands are bit too busy for you, I highly recommend you to go to this little gem.
The ferry doesn't go that often and not that many spots to hangout, but if you find that perfect remote stop, it is a tiny piece of paradise.
You can walk around the island, including the peninsula strip, find a nice remote spot, sit down, close your eyes and enjoy the silence and the sound of the trees and grass in the wind.
There is a, beautiful situated, bar/restaurant, incl toilets.

Nothing much
Jun 2018 • Couples
With a normal transport ticket, we got to the island by waiting at Stop E. Lots of people , so joined a long Q. Reach the island in 12 minutes. As we walked off from the jetty, we came across Gressholmen Kro , a restaurant and went in for lunch. Nice lunch. Then we walked around the island, nothing much. Saw people swimming / sunbathing. The only public toilet was near Gressholmen Kro, the traditional, ancient type of toilet.

Ruter have boats leaving all the time during the summer and this Island is worth a visit. If you prefer to have a swim nude, there is a place for that across the Island. A lot of nice spots to relaxed also with bikini.

Make a visit to Gressholmen Kristin as well.

Be aware of when the last boat leaves.

Very Scenic
Aug 2016 • Couples
Effectively you get off of the boat into a nature walk, through the woods or by the coast, it is perfect for those who want a peaceful and quiet nature walk whilst in a major city. There are a few buildings the further away from the dock you get, and the ferry arrives every 30 minutes, lovely island, worth a stop off if you are island hopping.

Great for picnics
Jul 2014 • Couples
We boarded the boat to Gressholmen at Vippetangen (bus 60 stops right next to the boat). The boatride took 25 mins and then we were landshore at Gressholmen. The ride gave us some nice photos of Oslo city and especially the Opera house and Barcode.
At Gressholmen it easy to find a place to Catch up With some tanning. There is also a cafe which looked OK. Bathing in the sea was chilling but quite refreshing.
