Overnight short trip outside Oslo

I will be staying in Oslo for a week this month.

During this time I (alone) wish to make a short overnight trip outside Oslo either by bus, train or boat.

I love the outdoor experience. Is it possible to catch and experience the fjords/glaciers/valleys up close? How about a short hike?

I really appreciate any suggestions or advice given.

Well, days are getting shorter.

Oslo is at the end of one of the largest fjords and you can do a trip (few hours) on Oslo's own fjord.

The more specatular fjords are in the west. You can do Norway in a Nutshell (perhaps stay overnight in Bergen). Or you can rent a car and drive to Sognefjord, where you also can visit glaciers up close. Roads there are frequently along fjord shores.

Note: Snow is already gathering on the glaciers so they may soon be less visible.

For lakes and mountains you don't have to travel that far.

You should also be aware that some of the spectacular mountain passes are about to close for the season due to expected snow (like Strynefjell, Trollstigen etc.).
