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

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.

Ferry ride to the peninsula offers beautiful views of Oslo. Many worthwhile museums within walking distance, and many places to eat or picnic.

A short ferry ride from Oslo takes you to a very beautiful housing district, with the Viking Museum, Fram exhibition and the outdoor museum. Lunch at the Lantern restaurant adjacent to the ferry terminal was a bonus - delicious fish soup!

So many cool museums and such beautiful scenery. The peninsula is so close to the city but you feel like you could be in the countryside.

Taking the ferry to the Bygdoy peninsular was good fun, nicer than taking a bus and much faster as well.

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

The information that you have about the ferry ride to Bygdoy Peninsula is true. The last ferry will operate this year on October 14th. So if you are traveling to Oslo after that, you’ll not be able to take the ferry. But you... 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
