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

There are some lovely views out to see from the peninsula and on the walk from the ferry terminal to the Viking Ship Museum, about 15-minutes away there are some lovely houses. Many of which are owned/rented by various Ambassadors and Embassies.

I took a break from the museums here. It was a beautiful, quiet place with plenty of benches and a wonderfully calm atmosphere.
