Top sights in Oslo
The fjord - or a sea inlet, usually surrounded by cliffs - is part of the geographical Norwegian imagination. So it's only fitting that the capital, Oslo, has its own! What are the best ways to while away the hours on Oslofjord?
Relax for a couple hours, taking pictures of traditional seaside homes, as well as the mountainous natural landscape. Add a shrimp dinner or see a live blues performance on board!
The freedom on a bike is always the best! Glide along and breathe in the salty fjord air, it's nothing short of perfect. Rent a city bike card at the Oslo Visitor Center!
Get away from the city buzz and experience some tranquility on one of Oslo's islands. Forests and hiking trails make this a retreat for residents and tourists alike.
Spring or summer - March to September - will have lovely weather, although it may be a little rain-prone!
It depends where your starting point is - whether it's from the pier in front of City Hall or Opera House, it will be at 9:45AM and 10:15AM respectively. Cruises last up to two hours.
May 17th is a national holiday in Norway, as are December 24th and 25th.
