    What to Expect
    Choose from one of several different start times, and then head to the pier opposite Oslo City Hall to board your boat. Your cruise takes place on Oslo Fjord, the city’s shimmering expanse of water, which is bordered by rocky shores and islets as well as the urban sights of Oslo.

    Gaze out at the wooded hills that ring the city, passing through sheltered sounds and winding around small islands speckled with summer vacation homes. Lear about the area—its history and geography—from your onboard guide as you cruise.

    Afterwards, return to the start point and hop back onto dry land to end your tour.

    Nice ship but very crowded. Can't imagine what its like in the summer.c Not that much to see in this "fjord" that's not really a fjord. However the commentary is interesting and the perspective from the water is nice.

    Hi and thanks for sharing. We appreciate your points of view :) We are happy so many people find their way to us - and we always try to accommodate as many as we can. If we are not mistaken, we also provided extra boats during mid-october. The Oslofjord is a fjord per definition, but what one expects is of course important. Oslo is not located on the west coast of Norway.

    Seeing a city from the water always gives you that extra perspective. Same here; it sure is worthwhile to sail out and see all the beauty that surrounds Oslo’s capital. We were amazed by the sheer number of summer houses that occupy the fjord, the tiny swimming houses built into

    took this boat trip last week, not cheap but well worth it. If you can sit on the port/left side as you can see the islands better. The late afternoon sailing is now finished for the winter but there still are to earlier one.

    The water around Oslo is incredibly still, lending a serenity to the city. The boat tour was lovely. It was relaxed, yet informative. There were plenty of blankets to throw over ones lap if cold, and the crew were quick to cover the seat area when it started raining. There was a
