Nature Walks: Island Hopping in the Oslo Fjord

Discover the majestic Oslo fjord and its various islands like a local, hopping on and off ferries to hike the forests, sea cliffs, charming villages and historic sites of three islands (sometimes two, sometimes four depending on the season and ferry schedule). With a Viking Hiking guide, explore the fascinating ruins of a nearly 1000 year old abbey, picnic on a hidden beach and walk the flower-covered paths of a summer village full of brightly painted, traditional wooden cabins. Don't forget a swim suit and towel as there is time for a swim in the surprisingly warm waters of the Oslo fjord! We also stop for a picnic lunch, which you can bring with you or purchase on the way.
