Overview

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

I’m so glad I got to see this part of Oslo, specially during summer! The weather was so hot and Bygdoy feels like it was made for such weather, beautiful scenarios, houses and flowers. There is a beach there and it was very packed! This...More

The peninsula is not just a home to ''must-see'' museums but also a place where you can take a walk or some sunbathing while dipping in the sea

Pleasant area with the most important museums in Oslo. It is a short ferry or bus ride from city hall. We took the ferry one way and the bus through the suburbs on the way back.

get a quick ferry ride over to Bygdoy peninsula, where a bunch of cool museums are. Just make sure you check the return time so you don't end up having to take a very expensive taxi ride!
