Owner description: 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

Calm island, full of parks, museums, tourist attractions and even places made for seawater swimming. Though most of the peninsula is private and one can't access all those good localities.

If it's summer don't forget your swim wear. At this area you'll find some interesting museums too. Definitely worth spending some time. It's possible to take city busses.

I almost skipped the Bygdoy Peninsula since the ferry seemed like a hassle, but I really wanted to see the Viking Ship Museum so I ended up going and I'm so glad I did! Strolling around the Peninsula is a great way to spend an afternoon. The homes there are just gorgeous and there are lots of great cultural attractions. I wish I had more time to spend there.

This is a residential area of Oslo which also encompasses several museums. We had the Oslo Pass and got round 4 museums in a day, getting there by the number 30 bus which goes from National Theatre, passing the Ibsen Museum, which we'd seen the previous day) and eventually stops at the Kon-Tiki Museum (especially interesting for me as I learned about this voyage in school what seems to be a century ago). The museum also has the RAII papyrus raft. After an hour there, we crossed the road to the Fram Museum (polar exploration ship) for another interesting hour learning about this wooden ship (interesting construction though) that still managed to create history at both poles of the globe. There were some interactive activities to amuse the kids (seeing what pulling a 300kg sled might feel like, laser rifles, reaction time game) and also a ice-cold walk-through which was very pleasant on our hot (over 30 degrees) day. We decided to give the Maritime Museum a miss as we'd seen similar quite recently. After a short number 30 bus ride again and some lunch at one of the local kiosks (burger, baked potatoes, salad), we moved to the Viking Ship Museum. There were only 3 ships plus some artefacts so this also only took an hour or so. It had free wifi and QR codes to stream audio but I had technical problems and also didn't want that amount of detail. After another short bus trip, we went into the Folk Museum and saw the famous wooden stave church, some exhibitions and some other buildings. One could spend several or many hours here but due to the heat we left after a couple of hours to get back to town and go for a swim at Frognerbadet pool (also included with Oslo Pass).
