Overview

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

A crisp morning with a lot of ice on the ground but a lovely run over the harbour to the Museuum penninsula with its lovely dwellings.

This area is home to the wealthy of Oslo, beautiful clapboard houses, marina and several museums. The fjord ferry trip only allows you a couple of hours so take the bus and spend the day here.

My wife and I took the bus out to Bygdoy Peninsula to visit the Viking Ship Museum. Rain was in the forecast, so we headed back into the city for the afternoon rather than going to Kon-Tiki Museum. We also enjoyed good views of Bygdoy...More

I love nature and this is a lovely area surrounded by many museums, nature, beautiful residential snow-covered houses and lovely sea inlets. Bus 30 brings you to all the key museum stops and the Oslo pass is worth it for museum hopping & moving around.

Nice place to visit during summer. Lots of museums, but you can also walk around or even better if you have your bike

One of the must do's when visiting Oslo. Nice opportunity for good photos, weather permitting. From the ferry stop it is a good enjoyable walk to the Viking museum, although stiff uphill. Interesting museum and ensure that you watch the video as well, very realistic....More

This is a nice place to visit just a busride out of the city (15-20 minuts) You can take bus number 30 from various locations in the city centre. Its a nice restaurant on the beach. Enjoy!

Short bus ride from centre of the city. In summer I recommend to go one way by boat. Start from the Oslo Rådhus. Go back by bus. On Bygdøy you find the Viking ships, the Nowegian Folkmuseum, as well as the Kon-Tiki, the fleet that...More
