Oslo Fjord, Oslo

(4.2/5 based on 1,800+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Oslo fjord/archipelago are so beautiful. Finally we were in Oslo, we decided that NOW it had to simply be, so we hopped on a tourist Fjord-Cruise, which we certainly not regretted ... But remember the warm clothes, as there is not much heat aboard:-) Fun to see the little ' bath-houses ' which was much used in the past, when there was to be smuggled alcohol into the country ... :-)

  • I was here on my 4. date with a I now can call for a friend. It was not so well signposted to Squatting, but we found out. It was a beautiful setting to go in and we had a nice view over the fjord, the city and Glasgow. Had taken some nice pictures in fine weather. It was not approved at this time of the year. The better.
