Do not expect to see the "classical fjords" because that's not the case, and it's quite predictable if you see the geography of Oslo. However, this is a very nice and normal boat tour around the harbour, passing through all the islands and peninsulas. A...More

Awesome tour of Oslofjord. Would recommend in sunny weather. Nice sea breeze and view. Nice staff. Bit expensive but worth the money!

We only took the museums ferry but were pleased by both the ride and the pleasant crew. Be advised that you'll have to walk quite a ways from the harbor to the museums, however.

Lovely cruise of the inner Oslo fiord. The sun was out and the boat was comfortable with nice drinks and snacks. Great way to see Oslo and surrounding water front.

Great way to get to see the best of Oslo and its harbour. The ferry is also very comfortable with drinks, snacks and food available for sale on the boat. Captain also explains main highlights. Recommended!

First... Yes, the boat is sea worthy... Although it really doesn't look like it will be. All the dry rot I saw was above the waterline... I hope. It was very cold, but they supplied nice warm blankets. They also serve warm drinks on board......More

We had a nice cruise in the Oslo fjord. We took the last cruise of the day at 15:30. The ship was quite full. It can get chilly on deck so the blankets provided were needed. Some audio track presenting the surroundings was playing but...More

We had a free morning in Oslo and since the fjord sail was a discounted option on the Oslo card we decided to book the 10.30am sail. The crew were a bit slow getting the craft ready so we waited at the pier while it...More
