Oslo Nature Walks: Island hopping

Curtis, the owner of the business, was our guide on this hike, and he shared a wealth of information about each island, and made the whole tour very interesting. He is bi-lingual so that helped with the diverse group we had. Everyone was relaxed and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. I highly recommend this.

Thank you for the nice review and I am glad you found the tour interesting. It is always fun for me when I get to use English, Norwegian and French in one tour! And I do remember that group, and it was a relaxed and laid-back atmosphere which fits the moods of the islands themselves. Best regards, Curtis

Our trip was very relaxing but informative. Really lovely way to see the islands and get a taste before returning to explore some more.

Thank you for the nice review and we agree with your description of the tour as both relaxing and informative. We often say it is our most laid-back tour, which is in line with Norway as a country. It is so nice to guide! Best regards, Curtis

This was a nice way to spend the afternoon. We met at the shop and then walked over to the ferry. From there we got on the ferry and went to three different islands. You could easily do the tour on your own by purchasing a ferry ticket and going between the islands yourself. However, doing it with the tour does give you the advantage of hearing about the history of the islands and learning about the Norwegian way of life. Some tips for you:You will need a ferry ticket. This can be purchased at the tour shop, which is nice. But they almost forgot to ask us if we needed one and we wouldn’t have known to buy one. So make sure to ask about that. Bring a lunch. The tour description says there are shops where you can purchase food. On the island where we were given time to eat, there was a convenient store with a very minimal selection of food as it was end of season. If you just bring a snack to tide you over, there are cafes on the other two islands where you can eat. We would have liked to have more time to explore each of the islands. The tour limited our time to walk around in our own. However, your ferry ticket is good for the whole day, so after the tour ends, you can go back to any of the islands and explore on your own.

We spent a wonderful day seeing a part of Oslo that most tourists do not see. The highlight for me was the ruins of the monastery. The trip was made great by our outstanding guide, He took us on walks through the islands on paths that were not easily found. We enjoyed a picnic beside the water. We learned a lot about the culture of the people of Oslo. I will sign up to repeat this tour if I get back to Oslo!

Our family of four had a great time. Great hikes and beautiful sites! Ferries were easy and quick The guides were friendly and helpful and both speak perfect English. I would recommend you pick up your transportation tickets ahead of time if you have children as they only sell the adult tickets.
