"Fjord Cruise" Fjord Tip by laurentka

Fjord, Oslo: 17 reviews and 28 photos

 
 

I wanted to see the Fjord close up after I first saw it from the air when flying in to Oslo. The cruise lasts for 2 hours and takes you through the fjord, past the fortress of Akershus, through narrow sounds, bays and a maze of islands with small and not so small summer houses.

It's a great trip, make sure you have your camera ready. The tour guide was a mine of information and made the tour really interesting. It seems like half the population of Oslo has got summer houses on the many islands! Some of the houses are just like bigger boat houses, but you can see all different sizes - and prices. We stopped in front of one of the islands where the houses change hands for up to NKR14,000,000!

The scenery is just great. I went on a hot and sunny day, sitting in the back of the open boat. Just sitting back and enjoying the views was very relaxing.

Directions: The ticket office and departure point are:

Oslo Harbour
Pier 3
in front of the Oslo City Hall
