The Basics

and the views of the pretty countryside and coast. One of the best ways to visit Bygdøy is with the Oslo City Pass, which drops you off and allows free admissions to many of its must-visit museums, plus extras such as free public transportation in select zones, discounted meals, and more. Or explore the area as part of a full-day walking, biking, or Segway tour that includes additional city attractions. If you have more time, take a full-day tour that adds on a cruise in the fjord.

The very best way to see Oslo.😀
The guide was amazing. The visit to the Norwegian Folk museum was very interesting and to be sung to was lovely. The experience of being on board the Fram was the highlight for me. The cruise was good apart from the slight rain. This was value for money without a doubt.
