Oslo's Fjord Islands, a wonder of the great north

Take a ferry to discover these idyllic islands for an unforgettable journey.

The 40 islands off Oslo constitute a magnificent natural archipelago, and each of them is a reserve for Norwegian fauna and flora. From the lively Aker Brygge wharf district, guests can board a ferry that takes you to one of the islands, when the season permits.

The most popular is Lindøya, located 20 minutes away from Oslo. The small and coloured wooden houses, hidden swimming areas and natural reserves all create a calm and serene environment. From the Bygdøy Peninsula, you can admire the summer residence of the kings of Norway.

Just in front of Oslo, Hovedøya Island is the ideal place to enjoy the beach in summer. Contrary to popular belief, the Gulf Stream ensures a milder climate in Oslo than its latitude suggests, and fjord water can reach 16°C in August! Finally, if you want to visit them all, the Oslo Grand Tour offers the opportunity of combining a visit to Oslo and its islands, in seven hours, on a beautiful boat.
