Electric fjord cruise on the Oslofjord

Starting from Langkaia in central Oslo, this fjord cruise sails quietly out from the harbor, giving you great views of the city. The boat sails past historical sites such as Akershus Fortress and Tjuvholmen, but also more modern and contemporary sights, such as the Opera House and Barcode district.

Leaving the inner Oslofjord, the boat sails past Bygdøy with the eye-catching Fram Museum on one side and idyllic islands on the other. You will have time to enjoy the beautiful landscape of islands, islets, and picturesque lighthouses from the boat's spacious viewing deck. 

The boat then makes a stop at historical Oscarsborg, an island that houses a fortress, a museum, a marina, and several restaurants. Oscarsborg is a popular hangout for Norwegians during summertime with great beaches and cozy places for picnics. If you want, you can choose to go ashore here and continue back to Oslo on a later boat.

Information and history from the places you pass are offered digitally during your trip, and large panorama windows will make this a wonderful experience, in all sorts of weather, all year! 


 

Tour Highlights

The Oslofjord

The Oslofjord is 100 km long and extends from Oslo all the way out to Færder Lighthouse. When you cruise out on the fjord from the port of Oslo, you will pass beautiful architecture and historical sites, such as the Opera House, Akershus Fortress, and Tjuvholmen. Onboard the electric boat you can enjoy the peace and quiet of the fjord, while the boat sails past Bygdøy with the great Fram Museum on one side and the inner Oslofjord's idyllic islands on the other. The area along the Oslofjord is a popular holiday destination for Norwegians, and in the summer the fjord and the islands are filled with happy summer guests enjoying life by the sea.

Oscarsborg

Oscarsborg is a gem in the Oslo Fjord and consists of a fortress, a museum, a marina, restaurants, and a hotel. Oscarsborg is a popular hangout for Norwegians during summertime with several beaches and cozy places for picnics. During the summer season, a strolling theatre performance brings the history of the fortress to life, and you can also experience opera performances and concerts here. You can enter the fortress for free and a stroll on the ramparts is a great way of getting an overview of the beautiful Oslofjord.
