Fjord Sightseeing Cruise

Product Image
Cruise through Oslo's inner harbor and part of nearby Oslofjord on this scenic two hour cruise.

Fjord Sightseeing Cruise

See Oslo and its surrounding countryside the same way locals have for thousands of years: by water. Discover the scenery on a traditional wooden boat, fully restored to its former glory. You will first see Akershus Castle and Fortress whose original construction dates back to 1299AD. Built to protect the city, it has successfully survived all sieges. Most of what you see today was added in the 17th century. Today it is still a military area. It is also home to the Norwegian Armed Forces Museum and the Norwegian Resistance Museum, both of which can be visited. It is also the final resting place of Norwegian nobility.

Sail through a maze of islands, many dotted with small summer houses, and the Dyna Lighthouse. Pass the Opera House, Hovedoya Island, and the Bygdoy peninsula, with its many interesting museums and beaches. Make your way to a smaller branch of the Oslofjord, the waterways that surround Oslo. Although not as dramatic as the taller, deeper waterways found in the west of Norway, this waterway leads to small serene villages with quaint clapboard houses, quiet Islands and boats galore.

You will then return to Oslo Harbor.
