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.

Oslo Fjord
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.

Nice boat and chilled way to spend an afternoon
Kelly_T

Boat was large and rustic looking. If you want your pick of seats arrive earlier than 15mins before. Drinks and food on board are expensive so I’d bring your own water and food. Trip was lovely. We had a very hot day and even with the breeze it was still pretty warm! If you want shade, they open the tent. Audio and music provided some laughs but the commentary did give us some facts about the islands and oslo life. Would recommend! It wasn’t too expensive either!

Great scenery on a cold boat
David_T

The scenery you see during the cruise is beautiful. However, we thought the boat was too crowded and there are only a few seats with an unimpressed view—those obviously went to the people who happened to be at the front of the line. We also didn’t expect the boat to be open, which made for a very chilly tour.

The was average. Nothing really special. If you take the ferry there, you should have seen some of what you would see on the cruise.

Cancelled on the morning without any explanation being offered: extremely disappointed. Expected to be told why. Would give no stars if that were possible.
icon Response from Host , Sep 2020
Hi. Sorry for the lack of information. We understand your disappointment. Thanks for letting us know! Did you already have a ticket? There has been, due to COVID | Corona at times very few reservations. When there are no reservations we choose to cancel. Navigating through this season has been at times trying. We hope for your understanding - and we do understand the lack of stars. Crossing over into new times we strive to do better. Communicating reasons for our passengers about cancellation should be easy to start with. Best regards - and again very sorry!

Chilly Oslo

The Fjord Sightseeing Cruise was on a large, comfortable boat and would have been a fabulous tour if it hadn't been so cold and rainy. The crew provided us with blankets and warm drinks were available. In spite of the weather, we enjoyed ourselves and discovered this fjord is unlike any other. I would recommend it.

Not a whole lot to see here...
Morgan_E
, Oct 2019
This cruise was just ok. We lucked out and had great weather. The narrations are pre-recorded, so it is not a live tour. You go VERY slowly, and since there isn't really much to point out, they play classical music between narrations and it WILL rock you to sleep. :) If the cruise went slightly faster, you could easily get this done in an hour. Also, this is not a "fjord" like you see in brochures. This is Oslo, so you're not seeing super high cliffs beside you. (Head elsewhere in Norway to see that beauty!) You'll see summer homes, and other landmarks, but nothing earth-shattering. The cruise was prompt--started and ended very timely.
icon Response from Host , Oct 2019
Thanks for sharing. I guess it depends on who is looking? If you expect high rise mountains and cliffs, waterfalls and glaciers - The Oslofjord is not the right destination. The inner part of the Oslofjord is sheltered waters and the "speed" limit will dictate how fast we sail. :) Im guessing you were expecting something else than what the tour offers? Again thanks for sharing :)
