What To Expect

Choose from one of several different start times, and then head to the pier opposite Oslo City Hall to board your boat. Your cruise takes place on Oslo Fjord, the city’s shimmering expanse of water, which is bordered by rocky shores and islets as well as the urban sights of Oslo.

Gaze out at the wooded hills that ring the city, passing through sheltered sounds and winding around small islands speckled with summer vacation homes. Lear about the area—its history and geography—from your onboard guide as you cruise.

Afterwards, return to the start point and hop back onto dry land to end your tour.

Oslo Fjord (Pass By)

Oslo is beautifully situated at the head of the Oslo Fjord (Oslofjorden in Norwegian) and is surrounded by forested hills. It’s a stunning city, and the best way to appreciate its beauty is on a relaxing sightseeing cruise. On this two-hour tour, discover the scenery from a sightseeing boat. You’ll sail past numerous islands, including Hovedøya and the Dyna Lighthouse, through narrow inlets and into sheltered bays so that you can capture the capital on camera from different angles. We will pass the Opera House in Oslo, housing The Norwegian National Opera & Ballet ensemble. The spot has been named Kirsten Flagstads place 1 after the opera's first director Kirsten Flagstad place 1 after the opera's first director Kirsten Flagstad.

Traveller Tips

They have some refreshments available but they are a bit pricey.
It was quite chilly once we got going, but they had warm blankets to keep you warm.
A gorgeous boat with a courteous crew (snacks and drinks available on the boat as well), and a nice route.

Our memorable experience...
Mariah_C, Aug 2022
Our memorable experience is beautiful views also our first ride in oslo, kind crew's and they explained all history of oslo.
Nice 2 hour sightseeing cruise in Oslo
Patricia_D, Aug 2022
Sitting on the left side on a chair with a back will be most comfortable and provide the best viewing. We arrived 15 minutes early and most good seats were already taken. Narration is interesting. It’s a inlet not really what you think of as a fjord. Captain was extremely punctual. Bring a jacket.
Chilled and well looked after
Jayne_M, Aug 2022
Easy to find interesting commentary. On board bar we picked up a Starbucks from the front . Chilled and lovely
Nice day on the boat
stephanies88, July 2022
Nice day on the boat! It was a nice tour around the fjords. You can buy drinks and snacks on board. Make sure to board early so you can get a spot on the side with a great view!
Beautiful scenery, relaxing trip
Deborahmallan, July 2022
Beautiful day to spend on the water. Amazing scenery and interesting information. Seating slightly awkward (bench seats with padded cushions) as the boat seemed full but quite a few people got up and wandered around to get photos, once we had set sail. Very relaxing time on the water
Great. Would have rather...
Heather_B, July 2022
Great. Would have rather had a live person talking instead of a recording and all the things talked about were on only one side of the boat.

Emma_H, July 2022
Really lovely, relaxing informative boat trip around the Oslo Fjords...lovely way to spend the afternoon!
Worth the price
ROBERT_L, July 2022
Beautiful and comfortable, but wished for more information about the things we were seeing. Would enjoy some historical information
Easy listening on the water
Bilal_S, July 2022
Difficulty getting tickets validated. Boat was crowded and had many smokers. The pace of cruisd is slow and you mostly look at water and small islands. Music is easy listening.
Good for summer
Anastasiya_N, July 2022
Nice boat to take on a sunny day. Very little commentary. There is food and drinks available to buy on the boat.
A beatiful trip in Oslo fjorden.
Lena_H, July 2022
The ship we take was great and seeing so many beatiful houses at Islands and we see many boats. It was a great trip.
Oslo Fjord Cruise
Philip_G, July 2022
The quaint bath houses, often in the same style and painted the same colors as the owners’ summer houses, was very picturesque!
Enjoyable trip
ChandraSekhar_K, July 2022
Cool sailings. Got an opportunity to see the other side of Oslo. Nice weather and smooth sailing. On time on and off.
Nice boat and chilled way to spend an afternoon
Kelly_T, June 2022
Boat was large and rustic looking. If you want your pick of seats arrive earlier than 15mins before. Drinks and food on board are expensive so I’d bring your own water and food. Trip was lovely. We had a very hot day and even with the breeze it was still pretty warm! If you want shade, they open the tent. Audio and music provided some laughs but the commentary did give us some facts about the islands and oslo life. Would recommend! It wasn’t too expensive either!

Rob_W, June 2022
Good value (for Norway) very enjoyable trip would recommend especially if the weather is good crew and commentary
Interesting cruise
Carlos_M, June 2022
The cruise was interesting, but my intention was to take pictures and there were no conditions to do so.
Great scenery on a cold boat
David_T, June 2022
The scenery you see during the cruise is beautiful. However, we thought the boat was too crowded and there are only a few seats with an unimpressed view—those obviously went to the people who happened to be at the front of the line. We also didn’t expect the boat to be open, which made for a very chilly tour.
Informative, great staff...
James_N, June 2022
Informative, great staff and wonderful views, we found the experience to be just what we expected…..
