Hopped on ferry( free with travel card), and toured around fjords, getting off and walked around each island and hopped back on when boat returned, easy to view some of the habitat on the different islands

Take bus 30 to Bygdoy from Sentral S, perhaps 15 minutes. If I had been there in spring, summer or fall, I would have taken the ferry. All of the museums are included on the Oslo City Pass, a good value that covers museum entrance and public transportation. My only regret is that we couldn't spend as much time at... More

We got our first view of the Peninsula from the water was we did the Oslo Fjord tour. We stopped by here towards the end of the journey but didn't get off as we had to find our own way back to the National Theatre are. Of course ferries aren't running in Winter so we came back here using public... More

Bygdoy can't be missed for any Oslo traveler. It's an easy (and enjoyable) ferry ride to the island. Once there, you have access to several great museums within a quick walk, a coastal area with restaurants and ice cream, and dreamy Norwegian homes. If you are in Oslo, you have to go to Bygdoy for a day.

Hired bikes in the center of Oslo and rode round the outside of Bygdoy. Only 20 minutes from the centre of Oslo and you are in woods, on beaches and out in the country side

Bygdøy is a great place for every season and all kinds of weather. In summer, enjoy long walks by the water, go swimming in Oslofjorden, sunbade or visit Folkemuseet. There are also a couple of great outdoor cafes to visit. In winter, dress warm and go for nice walks or enjoy some of the many great museeums in the area.... More

There is certainly a reason why this is one of the #1 things to do in Oslo. This is an inexpensive way to get your fix of ferry and culture all in one shot—and the whole family can enjoy. You grab tickets for the “batservice”or boat service directly in front of City Hall. The ferry takes less than 10 minutes... More

I walked most of the Bygdoy peninsula with my wife, father in law and friend. A really large area with lots to see. Be prepared to do a lot of walking if you are going to take a stroll as it's quite a big area. There are some of the best museums I have ever seen and the sights and... More

Although its not one of the typical places to go, if you've seen the city and its main attractions, it makes a really good alternative for a sunny day, having great views of the Oslo bay
