Experience Boat Tours in Oslo

Summer loving: For the very best views of the fjords, you are best to visit Oslo during the summer months. May to August is when the temperatures are at their best and room rates are affordable. Head there in July and you’ll also get to witness the famous midnight sun.

Oslo’s top choices: Along with its green spaces, the capital of Oslo offers you plenty of interesting places to explore. There’s The Royal Palace and the Norwegian Museum of Cultural History, places that’ll help fill in any historical gaps. Not forgetting the Viking Ship Museum and the waterside fortress of Akershus Fortress. And why not get some thrills at the Holmenkollbacken ski jump? Plenty of exploring to go along with your boat trip.

Cruise and peruse: How about heading around some of the city’s top museums and then boarding a cruise? It’s called Oslo in a Nutshell and is the perfect way to capture the city’s best sights. Cruise the fjord and enjoy some local culture.

• Oslo is the outdoor capital city, literally. The Oslo Forest (Oslomarka) touches the urban core and is a place for the city dwellers' weekend retreat. It’s protected against development and is home to species such as lynx, wolf, beavers and moose.

• Oslo wasn't its first name, and being a king has many great benefits including naming cities. Fire ripped through Oslo in 1624, and after rebuilding the city by the then King Christian IV of Denmark and Norway, the new Oslo was initially called Christiania.

• Oslo is a city of islands. Several of which you can visit by passenger ferry. You’ll find many locals own or rent small cottages for their summer getaways in these beautiful getaway places.
