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 cycle route along Frognerstranda to Hengesengveien, Bygdoy. Continue to Holsts vei - Rideveien - Huk - P.T. Mallingsvei - Langviksvei - Huk Aveny - Museumsveien - Wedels vei - Dronning Biancas vei Distance: 7 km Incline: insignificant Roadway: primarily fine gravel roads

Bygdøy is a must-see for visitors to Oslo; this peninsula is a short ferry ride away from Oslo harbor & is worth spending an entire day on if you have the time. There are several museums on the peninsula; the two I saw were the...More

This is a gem location - so much to see and enjoy and it has written explanations in English. Well worth spending a couple of hours here and you'll learn a lot about early Norwegian life. Beautiful displays.

A short bike ride from the city centre, this peninsula is such a beautiful sight. We biked from Oslo on the bike path and visited the beach on Bogdoy. The water was warm due to the Gulf Stream and had lifeguards. We continued to bike...More
