Make your own way to the pier near Oslo City Hall, and step aboard your handsome wooden sail boat. It’s an evening cruise, so make sure you dress for the chilly evening temperatures. Blankets are available on board if you’re really feeling the cold.

Then, set sail around Oslo Fjord, the glistening body of water that’s flanked by glorious countryside as well as the city sights. Sail past Oslo Opera House and Akershus Fortress, and then meander through the pretty islets that pepper the fjord. 

As you cruise, enjoy a tasty snack of shrimps with bread. Then, after three hours on the water, return to the start point where your evening cruise ends.

Amazing for friends!!!
, Aug 2022
The food and drinks were great and the scenery was beautiful! The seaguls soaring through the air was a sight to see and the islands of oslo were quaint!
Enjoyable Evening
, Aug 2022
The beautiful sky at sunset and views from the boat were highlights. The staff was friendly and efficient.
Enjoyable and special cruise

It was a very nice cruise. Met some special people onboard and had a truly enjoyable and pleasant time. Views were beautiful & staff was courteous and attentive!

Really enjoyed our cruise even though skies were grey after thunderstorms earlier. Checked that it would go ahead given the thunderstorms predicted and it would ; they have overhead covers and side screens. Disappointed that there wasn’t a commentary to accompany the cruise. Fortunately we sat with 2 Canadian tourists who were very good company. The shrimp supper was tasty.

Highly recommend this trip. Fantastic value for money, phenomenal views and great shrimp eating experience. Will be taking my friends and family on this.
Delightful evening
, Aug 2020
Peaceful trip through beautiful landscape on a perfect evening. I liked the way the engine was stopped and we drifted. More shrimps than I could eat and it distracted from the view. But all very good.

:) Thank you so much for a great review!
Lovely sailing!

I had previously taken the 2 hour boat tour which was at the end to the 7 hour HHK Grand Tour, and during that tour was given lots of information and history, which I liked. So saying that, I was able to just sit back on this venture and just “cruise” and enjoy this tour because I was already aware of all the history and background of what I was seeing and on this it is just a cruise, not a tour. It was in the evening and the weather was beautiful and the sites were absolutely lovely! The shrimp was a nice treat! Some people complained of the size, but it’s all you can eat, so if you want more, just get more. I preferred to just open a bunch (they are peel and eat) and put them in a large lettuce leaf (those are provided along with bread) pour some of the spicy sauce from the packet, wrap it up and have a shrimp lettuce wrap that tasted divine! I ate about 4 of those. Quite yummy with a couple glasses of white wine, which you can purchase at the bar. This was a very lovely tour and I would definitely recommend, especially if you already know the history and just want to relax, unwind and enjoy the scenery and the company.

Thanks for a great review :)
Not what expected
, Jul 2019
As I was traveling with two teenagers this tour was truly meant for 40+ ages people. The crew gave no info other than a safety preserver talk, where to find the bar, and when the shrimp was to be served. You take the boat out one hour, hang out there, eat shrimp, and head back. If you’re looking to just get out on the water, then this is for you. If you want to see or hear about anything, find another tour

Thanks for sharing. You are correct - there is no info on the tour. No guiding,- wonder where you were informed about this? Please let us know. Its a pure "shrimp-dinner" experience. Our 1,5 hr city cruise or the 2 hr sightseeing tour are all guided, all day. All the best Båtservice Team.

It was a fun evening cruising the Oslo Fjord finishing with a city cruise as the sun was setting. Seating is close on life vest containers back-to-back. Call ahead to request a table with chairs since they are limited. Bar service onboard, and plenty of shrimp...with the heads on.

This trip was fantastic. It was so much fun to travel on this ship and watch the landscape of Oslo Fjord slide by. The crew were great, very friendly and efficient. I loved the meal of shrimp, but my boyfriend doesn't eat shrimp so there was nothing for him. We lucked out and had a beautiful day for our trip. If the weather had not been so good, the trip could have been very cold. The ship did provide blankets.

Did this tour with my mom and my son on May 17, which is a very busy holiday in Oslo! It was a wonderful relaxing way to unwind after a very long day of parades. Bring a jacket, it can be cool. The all you can eat shrimp was very delicious and a great way to fill up a teenager's appetite. We bought beer/wine on board normal Norwegian prices and enjoyed a pleasant cruise.

Best way to celebrate my60th birthday! Excellent food wine and music. A shame the lady sitting next to us lit a cigarette during our meal. What lax laws Scandinavia has about smoking in public. Watch out for law suits in the future regarding passive smoking

A bit of a mistake for us, this was aimed at people who wanted to eat shrimp of which there were plenty. There was no commentary and we amused ourselves by watching people - something that we could have done anywhere

It was interesting. The tour guide was very knowledgeable but in every stop you make, they give you so very little time to see and enjoy things. The tour is good because of the beauty that Iceland has to offer landscapewise but we should be given at least 8 more minutes in each stop to enjoy the tour more.

I was lucky enough to do this cruise on a mild and pleasant evening which made it so much more enjoyable - and there were lots of people out near the water. This was my first trip to Oslo and the only evening I spent there and I'm so glad I did this cruise - seeing somewhere from the water gives you a whole different perspective. The crew were friendly and efficient as well - overall I would recommend - especially in good weather!

Would just like to warn fellow travellers not to waste their time booking this tour. It was boring with no information as to where we were what we were seeing. Tour can't be blamed for the weather but we froze, got wet and the staff did not show a bit of concern. Im sure there are more interactive and interesting tours than this one.
