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...more

This is the Museum Island and a part of Oslo image! Should be visited and a great source of Museums in one place. We took a boat to go there and a bus to return to the city. Great trip for almost a whole day!...More

On this peninsula you will find the Fram-Museum and the Kontiki-museum, they are next to each other. There are also many villas and consulates on this beautiful peninsula.

We came here for the museums (Viking Ship, Folk Art) but really enjoyed the walk around the neighborhoods too. Very quiet. Homes are large, traditional, apparently wealthy without being in-your-face. Lovely area.

Many museums here outside of the city, attainable by bus, nice to get into some nature and away from Oslo's busy city center.

The ferry ride across the harbor is short but fun and inexpensive. The two museums we visited were uncrowded and interesting. Well worth the trip.

We drove round this peninsula on a cold grey day and recognise we did not see it at its best. On a sunny day it would look much better, but even so it was not quite as picturesque as we had hoped with more unremarkable...More

There are the occasional villas for rent, but only long term. There are no hotels in Bygdoy. However, the bus nr 30 from downtown Oslo only takes 15-20 minutes to reach all the museums, of which there are many exiting ones... More
