"A Cruise tour worth the price" joseph ohimor


  • See the beauty of Oslo from the water; this sightseeing tour provides the best view of the beautiful coastline of the city
  • Sail past the impressive Akershus Fortress, Oslo Opera House and many more popular sights


Oslo is a city where a bustling commercial centre and unspoiled natural beauty really exist side by side. Experience this for yourself on a tour of the stunning Oslo fjord. A boat tour along the Oslo fjord is the best way to experience the stunning beauty of the rugged Norwegian coastline.

Travel through a pristine paradise, relaxing as the boat sails past the picturesque islands in the inner part of Oslo fjord. Admire the imposing Akershus Fortress which was used to protect Oslo from attacks from the sea.


The tour starts from Rådhusbrygge 3 (pier 3) waterfront of the Oslo City Hall. Sail along the Fjord, past a maze of green islands dotted with picturesque summer houses.

En route, see the Akershus Fortress which was not just a military fortress but has also been used as a prison. You will go past the modern Oslo Opera House and through a maze of islands with small summer houses, which demonstrate a blend of modern and ancient building styles. The boat passes close to the peninsula of Bygdøy, housing many interesting museums as well as beaches such as Huk Bay. See the Maritime Museum with its veteran sailing ships moored outside, and the impressive Fram Museum, housing the polar ship of the same name.

The area is known for its stunning beauty, so be sure to bring your camera along.

The tour ends at the starting point.
