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

I took the ferry across. The area appears to be a wealthy area of town with great old houses and several museums. It’s a nice area for a stroll if you have some time. Great views of the harbor as well.

I found myself out here every day I was in Oslo. It is a really pretty area, to say nothing of the museums. The Royals have a summer home here and the Royal Yacht is moored off Bygdøy.

Bygdøy is best known for its museums, but the pennisula has a good walking path in the woods. You can see the fjord and walk by small cozy beaches. It's just a short drive from the Oslo center.
