One of most delightful, romantic two-wheel rides in Oslo. Lush woods, park-like countryside, view of the sea, swimming areas, historic buildings and the royal cows are some of the sights to see along the way. Arrive from Aker Brygge via the 3-km...more

On this peninsula you will find the Fram-Museum and the Kontiki-museum, they are next to each other. There are also many villas and consulates on this beautiful peninsula.

We came here for the museums (Viking Ship, Folk Art) but really enjoyed the walk around the neighborhoods too. Very quiet. Homes are large, traditional, apparently wealthy without being in-your-face. Lovely area.

We were easily able to take a bus over to the peninsula, right to the door of the Norwegian Museum of Cultural History. From there it was a short walk to the Viking Ship Museum. We then walked about 15 minutes to the Kon-Tiki and...More

Many museums here outside of the city, attainable by bus, nice to get into some nature and away from Oslo's busy city center.

The ferry ride across the harbor is short but fun and inexpensive. The two museums we visited were uncrowded and interesting. Well worth the trip.

Ferry ride to the peninsula offers beautiful views of Oslo. Many worthwhile museums within walking distance, and many places to eat or picnic.

A short ferry ride from Oslo takes you to a very beautiful housing district, with the Viking Museum, Fram exhibition and the outdoor museum. Lunch at the Lantern restaurant adjacent to the ferry terminal was a bonus - delicious fish soup!

The information that you have about the ferry ride to Bygdoy Peninsula is true. The last ferry will operate this year on October 14th. So if you are traveling to Oslo after that, you’ll not be able to take the ferry. But you... More
