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 love nature and this is a lovely area surrounded by many museums, nature, beautiful residential snow-covered houses and lovely sea inlets. Bus 30 brings you to all the key museum stops and the Oslo pass is worth it for museum hopping & moving around.

Nice place to visit during summer. Lots of museums, but you can also walk around or even better if you have your bike

This is a nice place to visit just a busride out of the city (15-20 minuts) You can take bus number 30 from various locations in the city centre. Its a nice restaurant on the beach. Enjoy!

Short bus ride from centre of the city. In summer I recommend to go one way by boat. Start from the Oslo Rådhus. Go back by bus. On Bygdøy you find the Viking ships, the Nowegian Folkmuseum, as well as the Kon-Tiki, the fleet that...More

Bygdoy Island is closeby and walkable to Skoyen. Swans in Bygdoy Islands is one of the key attractions. When you go to Bygdoy islands, you can hike to Paradise Bukta. This place will give you a feeling of Nirvana. All in all, it is one...More
