How to set out on fjord journey in Oslo
The Oslofjord is about 100 kilometers long, it connects Oslo with the North Sea.

The part of the inlet is included into Oslo water area and maintained by a few shipping companies - you can take a ferry and easily get from the City Hall to the Bygdoy Peninsula or to the beach of Langøyene island.

How to do?

1. At Oslo central seafront near the City Hall, ferry 91 departs from quay №3 to Bygdoy peninsula (here you can find a lot of museums and architecture of XVIII century). From the Aker-Brygge seafront you can get to Nesodden, from DFDS Seaways seaport (on Vippetangen seafront) - to Hovedoya island, and from June till August - to Langøyene island.

2. All the water area of Oslo is divided into zones - price for ferry trip depends on them (look up the pay scale at ticket salespoint - at metro stations, next to the bus and tram stops, and also on the quay). Choose your destination and buy a ticket - single-use (it is valid for 60 minutes within one zone) or a 24-hour ticket (unlimited travels within one zone). The journey takes from 10 minutes up to 2 hours depending on the distance.

When to do?

Come here in summer time when the light day is longest. In June you can witness 'white nights' here, and in August it gets dark not earlier than 10 pm.

How much?

Zone 1:
• single-use ticket for adults (for 60 minutes) - 33 kronas, for 4-14-year-old children and pensioners - 17 kronas, for children under 4 - free.
• 24-hour ticket for adults - 90 kronas, for 4-14-year-old children and pensioners - 45 kronas, for children under 4 - free.
Zone 2:
• single-use ticket for adults (for 60 minutes) - 53 kronas, for 4-14-year-old children and pensioners - 27 kronas, children under 4 - free.
• 24-hour ticket for adults - 140 kronas, for 4-14-year-old children and pensioners - 70 kronas, for children under 4 - free.

If you buy tickets on ferry board they cost 22 kronas more for adults and 11 kronas more for children. You can pay for tickets only with cash.
