Pass By: Oslo Fjord, Oslo Norway

Oslo is beautifully situated at the head of the Oslo Fjord (Oslofjorden in Norwegian) and is surrounded by forested hills. It’s a stunning city, and the best way to appreciate its beauty is on a relaxing sightseeing cruise.

On this two-hour tour, discover the scenery from a sightseeing boat. You’ll sail past numerous islands, including Hovedøya and the Dyna Lighthouse, through narrow inlets and into sheltered bays so that you can capture the capital on camera from different angles. We will pass the Opera House in Oslo, housing The Norwegian National Opera & Ballet ensemble. The spot has been named Kirsten Flagstads place 1 after the opera's first director Kirsten Flagstad place 1 after the opera's first director Kirsten Flagstad. It was designed by the architectural firm Snøhetta AS, which won an architectural competition in 2000.

We really enjoyed our two hour trip. It's a good thing to do on day 1 as lots of important areas are pointed out to reference back to during your trip. It was absolutely freezing when we went, but we were all provided with blankets which were really well received by everyone. The hot chocolate on board is great too!

I loved this cruise; the sights and the whole feeling of it is just so lovely. I booked with Viator because of their cancellation policy and it was so easy, including the instructions for the cruise. Definitely worth the price!

We had a peaceful ride around the fjords with some informative narrations about the sites. The boat had plenty of room, the staff was friendly, and it lasted exactly two hours. They have some refreshments available but they are a bit pricey. We enjoyed the excursion and would recommend it to others.

If you're in Oslo, and looking to see the fjord in a two-hour boat tour, departing from and arriving back right at the central dock, this is absolutely what you should do! A gorgeous boat with a courteous crew (snacks and drinks available on the boat as well), and a nice route. A suitable amount of commentary (in English), but not too much, a great balance between letting you take things in yourself and explaining some interesting landmarks and buildings.

Beautiful sailing boat! Great Scenery easy to locate your! Do not miss it! Very reasonable to set up on your own prior to arriving! Great restaurant for seafood close to the pier! Enjoy

My wife and I enjoyed this trip very much across the peaceful waters of the Oslo fjord. There was even a service bar on the boat with beverages for purchase.

It was great to see Oslo from the water and get a little history of the city. The boat ride was very pleasant and calming. It was quite chilly once we got going, but they had warm blankets to keep you warm.

It was a gorgeous day and the cruise was delightful. I couldn't hear the commentary if I was on the front deck so that was a small issue, but I was very happy just watching the scenery go by. It was very cold so the bar with hot drinks was an excellent addition. It would have been lovely to have a complimentary glass of glogg but as the tour was not that expensive it didn't detract from the experience. Would happily go again.

This was a good cruise with limited time. Saw 2 hrs of the coastline waterways. Interesting info, guide was terrific. Started out in the rain but boat is enclosed so not a problem. Mini Fjords but a taste for sure. Would recommend this if you can't get to Bergen

Plenty of information provided by our guide. The cruise was another of Oslo from the Fjord with views of many small islands in the fjord.

Beautiful sites, professional crew, food, drinks, and hot chocolate on board. Not a lot of inane talking, just the basics . Sit back and enjoy views.

Lovely way to see Oslo from a different perspective. Defintely a must. The tour took place on the Chistiania, a wooden old looking sail ship, even though it ran on engines all the time. You have a bar on board and get to see lovely views of the islands around. A must see in Oslo!

Probably the best way to see Oslo.

Loved the tour of the Oslo Fjords. Was great having the recorded guide along with the cruise provided a wealth of historic information not only related to the Fjords, but historic information related to Oslo, in general. The crew was also very kind.

This was a fun afternoon trip through Oslo. The ship had a nice bar service where we could purchase wine, beer, coffee or soft drinks. We went by interesting sites including small waterfront slips where people were swimming, grilling dinner and having a good time.

Beautiful cruise! It was very cold on our cruise but they had hot drinks for purchase and plenty of blankets to use.

We had a very good and relaxing time on this boat ride. Having done the Norway in a Nutshell tour from Oslo to Bergen before, I was not expecting much. However, our family of 4 really enjoyed the tour. The day was beautiful and the boat was nice. I imagine the trip would not have been so good in a rainy or very cold day. We had hot chocolate from the little bar, which serves drinks and hot dogs. Learned a little bit about the area and the houses, which usually stay in families for generations.

Oslo Norway is a wonderful place... beautiful people and beauty all around ...You tour is centrally located at the pier. We hopped on our tour boat and saw the local area Fjords. Picturesque little homes along the cliffs along the way . Out of a photo book! We later returned to pier and saw local museums and walked along the down town shopping areas and cafes had a great lunch ... Ill be back to visit Oslo Norway Gorgeous!
