Only 400 metres from the city lies the first of more than 40 islands in the fjord. This one is called 'Hovedøya' and like the many other islands it can be reached by a ferry from Vippetangen in the city. On the island you can see the ruins of an old monastery from 1147, and you can also find many great beaches for a picnic and a swim.
Directions: Buses take you to Vippetangen where the ferries depart. The ticket for the bus and the metro are also valid on the ferries.
