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

Bygdøy is an island easily reached by foot a ferry from the center of Oslo. It is outstandingly rural being situated only a kilometer's walk from the city center.

Just outside of the city centre, you can enjoy the tranquillity of the countryside, with seabirds on the coastline and almost untouched nature around the museums and residential areas.

A very nice suburb of Oslo--on the water. There are beaches, restaurants, and museums. Definitely worth a visit.

A crisp morning with a lot of ice on the ground but a lovely run over the harbour to the Museuum penninsula with its lovely dwellings.

This area is home to the wealthy of Oslo, beautiful clapboard houses, marina and several museums. The fjord ferry trip only allows you a couple of hours so take the bus and spend the day here.

My wife and I took the bus out to Bygdoy Peninsula to visit the Viking Ship Museum. Rain was in the forecast, so we headed back into the city for the afternoon rather than going to Kon-Tiki Museum. We also enjoyed good views of Bygdoy...More
