  • Overview & Itinerary
    Overview

    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.

    Enjoy a stop at Bygdøynes during the winter months and explore the prominent museums there.

    Itinerary

    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.

    Summer Itinerary:

    This is the classic Oslo Fjord sightseeing. You will pass through narrow sounds, idyllic bays and through a maze of islands with small summer houses. Discover the scenery from a sightseeing boat. You’ll sail past numerous islands, including Hovedøya and the Dyna Lighthouse, through narrow inlets and into sheltered bays so that you can capture the capital on camera from different angles. Also, you will pass the Opera House in Oslo, housing The Norwegian National Opera & Ballet ensemble. The spot has been named Kirsten Flagstads place 1 after the opera's first director Kirsten Flagstad. The boat then passes close to the peninsula of Bygdøy, with many interesting museums as well as beaches such as Huk. You can also 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.

    Winter itinerary: During winter, apart from the above itinerary, there is a stop at Bygdøynes, letting passengers off for a 2.5-hour visit to museums.
