“Fjord cruise great for seeing the area”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

We took a 3 hour cruise around the Oslo Fjord, booked on the waterfront when we arrived. The price was OK when you consider how expensive everything is in Oslo. We had lovely weather and the views were great, both of the city and the surrounding islands and summer residences. Would highly recommend it as opposed to the small and expensive museums.

“Water makes an impression”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

Yeah, guys. This water is impressive. Also, there are boats/ferries leaving from Oslofjord every 30 mins. If you have Oslo Pass, they are free, so use it to swim to other isles and visit them a bit. There are ferries every 30 mins from these isles too, so don't worry about being stuck on the island. Well, maybe just check the timetable to make sure it will be okay. But gotta say that the view of Oslo from Hovedstaden island in the night is really, really nice.
Also, walk around the Oslofjord! There are many boats to see :)

“Simply breathtaking”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

The scenery is simply breathtaking. I would recommend going to the Fjord in the summer. That's because only the summer there is a ferry that runs from Olso to Drobak. The ferry ride is not expensive at all. But the view from the upper deck of the ferry let you enjoyed the view of the beauty of the Fjord and breath one of the cleanest air on the planet.

Drobak has an all year round X'mas shop and a post office which stamps your postcard with a special X'mas stamp !

“Absolutely exquisite!”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

Even though it's hard to miss the fjord when travelling to Oslo, but it is absolutely worth to spend an hour or two just walking along the water. Visit the Opera House for a beautiful view or take a boat to an island and just enjoy the immense beauty of nature!

“Unforgettable Norwegian experience”
Reviewed November 14, 2013

Enjoyed the couple of hours in Oslo Fjord..sunshine, beer and cool October breeze..i visited oslo in october end..took the 2 hours sightseeing boat cruise on Helena..lots of open space (some previous reviewers were restricted in their boats)..nice bar with beer n breads/snacks to kick start your day..even got to click pics with the Captain in the bridge of the ship. Dont forget to carry a jacket n cap, obviously you would be carrying a camera..clean boat with clean toilets..overall a must do itinerary in Oslo
