Oslo Fjord, Oslo

#1 of 23 in Parks in Oslo
Water Body Nature / Park
Replete with numerous small islands and winding waterways, Oslo Fjord and its surrounding environs play home to a large portion of Norway's population. Though more a bay than a stereotypical fjord, the site's geographical impact on the surrounding area throughout history has been significant. Tour the sounds and harbors of the fjord to discover the different cultures and traditions that have developed on different islands, many unique to that particular zone. Use a tour boat, kayak, or canoe to explore the coastal landscape and its accompanying historical sights, including ruined monasteries, old waterfront homes, and vintage lighthouses. After touring, kick back with a drink or a bite to eat at one of the many cafes and restaurants along the sea nearby. To visit Oslo Fjord on your trip to Oslo, use our Oslo vacation trip planner.

  • Worth it, even if the weather is not so best. The cruise lasts 2 hours. Nice views in the fjord!

  • The Oslo fjord and its many islands discovered by ferry (several possible lines, very affordable price with card Ruter 24 hours, at the pace that suits you). We stop according to his desires, to discover an island, small beaches (and its brave bathers!), its trails and nature reserves, or the ruins of a Cistercian Monastery.

  • A pleasant walk by the Oslo Fjord on a historical boat, good atmosphere with prawns to go go included and that allows us to see the buildings in this fjord on the outskirts of Oslo

Where to stay in Oslo

A majority of Oslo's hotels and smaller accommodations cluster along Karl Johans Gate, the city's main drag connecting many of its downtown attractions. If you want something a bit more colorful than the average hotel, consider one of the many bed and breakfasts that have been cropping up in recent years. To escape the crowded streets, but still be walking distance from major sights, stay in the Frogner or Majorstuen neighborhoods near the royal palace. As you can probably guess, lodging is quite expensive in this European capital.
