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

There are some lovely views out to see from the peninsula and on the walk from the ferry terminal to the Viking Ship Museum, about 15-minutes away there are some lovely houses. Many of which are owned/rented by various Ambassadors and Embassies.

Museum island with many museums close to each other. Beautiful Place by the sea. Here you have the Kontiki museum, Maritim museum and near by you also have the Viking museum and Folkemueum.

I took a break from the museums here. It was a beautiful, quiet place with plenty of benches and a wonderfully calm atmosphere.

May depend upon your time & mobility, but this is a slightly different facet of Oslo to be experienced. Bus (#30) & boat - and I wouldn't miss at least 1 transit by boat - service (ferry & hop-on/hop-off boat) are available to this area...More

The ferry ride to the peninsula is part of the experience. Buy the two way ferry ticket onshore to get the cheapest rate. Once you are on the island, you are immediately transported to a relaxing, unhurried atmosphere. Visit one of the museums or just...More
