About this experience

Embark on an exciting island-hopping adventure with local guides. Enjoy some of the region's most fascinating natural destinations like Hovedøya, birch forests, fjords, and much more.

Hovedøya Exploration:
Hop on a local ferry and head to Hovedøya, a captivating island steeped in history. Discover the fascinating history of English monks who arrived here to Christianize post-Viking Oslo, setting up a mighty abbey almost a millennium ago. Explore the remarkably preserved ruins.

Scenic Walks and Coastal Beauty:
Wander through sheep pastures and picturesque birch forests, making your way to old ramparts and cannons dating back to the 19th-century Napoleonic Wars. Take in the rugged coastline's beauty and enjoy stops at stunning beaches and lookout points before catching the next ferry.

Cabin and wooden House Charms:
Arrive at second island, a delightful summer retreat with traditional wooden homes and gardens full of flowers that create a lovely contrast against the surrounding fjord. Hike up to the island's summit for breathtaking views and prepare for a delightful picnic lunch. If needed, you can stop at a local food store to pick up some delicious treats.

Spectacular Views and Hidden Beaches:
Continue your journey by boarding another ferry, sailing to our last island. This nature preserve boasts thick forests, dramatic sea cliffs, and secluded beaches, providing a serene and mesmerizing atmosphere to enjoy a drink.

Return to Oslo's City Center:
Catch the ferry back to the city center and be treated to a remarkable entry into the port. Marvel at Oslo's iconic sites, including the historic Akershus Festning fortress, the elegant City Hall, and the vibrant Aker Brygge port area.
