What You Can Expect

Oslo Mini Cruise

Oslo Mini Cruise

Step aboard your boat at the pier near Oslo City Hall, and then sit back to take in the sights from the water. As you cruise, audio commentary plays, allowing you to learn about Oslo’s landmarks as you see them.

Pass through a stretch of the Oslo Fjord, seeing Oslo Opera House, the harbor and surrounding museums and galleries on Bygdøy Peninsula. Then, have your camera poised for shots of Akershus Fortress, the medieval castle that was created to defend the city from maritime attacks. 

Three stops are included at City Hall, Oslo Opera House and the museum peninsula at Bygdøy. If you want to jump off, it’s a great excuse to take photos of the sights from land.

This was a lovely trip, was such a pity it was a little overcast on the day. If your going in thewinter months wrap up warm but the staff will give you blankets if you need! Make sure to get off at the Museums and definately visit the Fram Polar museum, great fun. Drinks and food on board are a little expensive (but then everything in Oslo is!) but tasty! definately worth a trip!

The trip was small and crispy. The staff was very friendly and answered all my queries with a smiling face. As I was in a hurry, this trip was ideal for me and easily covered most of the destinations in Oslo. I would like to recommend this trip.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better September 2012

We went to where we were supposed to catch the boat for its first tour of the day. It didn’t seem like the boat would be going anyplace soon. Luckily my husband noticed the kiosk for the tour company. We presented our vouchers and were told to walk over to another pier. We walked over, found the boat, but were told by the crew to walk back over to another pier where we would be able to board. It wasn’t that organized and it looked like quite a few people ended up getting on the wrong boat. The boat didn’t leave on time. We couldn’t hear the commentary, not that there was much said. Not a whole lot to see in the harbor and I would only recommend this as way to get to some of the museums on the other side of the harbor.
