Attractions along Oslo Fjord:

Eastern Shore: the fortress town of Fredrikstad, and the Fredriksten Fort in Halden, prehistoric relics along the Highway of the Ancients near Skjeberg, and pleasant fjord-side walks at Jeløy. Take the Moss to Horten ferry and the Western Shore.

Western Shore: the Naval Museum at Horten, the Viking Mounds of the Borre National Park and Tønsberg, the island and skerries of Nøtterøy and Tjøme, and the Whaling Museum at Sandefjord.

 

 

 

Getting Around Oslo: It's best to park your rental car at the hotel and use public transport in Oslo. Various Transportation Passes (even a combination Transportation/Museum Pass) are available for guests for unlimited use of the Oslo's excellent trolley, and subway system. The several maritime museums at Bygdøy across the harbor from the Oslo waterfront are reached by ferry and bus services. Central Oslo is compact and very walkable.

Getting Around
          the Oslo Fjord:

          No part of Norway is as congested with traffic than greater Oslo. The commuter rail network and ferries do provide some transportation options for those who don't wish to drive. Still, getting to the out-of-town attractions is best accomplished with rental car. Rail services to Oslo are frequent — making it possible take the train into the city in less than one hour.

Norwegians, like all of us, must deal with congested roads and delayed commuter trains. What they dream of is escaping life's routines in a boat. In this regard Norwegians remain Norsemen. Photo © Home At First.

Getting to/from the Oslo Region: In Norway all roads and railroads (and most flights and international ferries) lead to Oslo. Visitors travel to/from Oslo via rental car, the scenic, high-speed trains of Norwegian Rail, international and inter-Scandinavian Flights from Oslo International Airport (with high-speed rail link to Oslo Central Station), and even international ferry services. South of Oslo, cross-fjord ferries connect the east and west shores of the Oslo Fjord at Moss and Horten.
