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.
Average fitness level is required. The walking is mostly flat, but on a mix of stones, gravel paths and dirt roads. Participants should be able to walk for 30 minutes at a moderate pace and wear good walking shoes for the trails.

Please arrive at our shop at least 15 minutes before the start of the tour as the group departs at 12:00 noon exactly in order to make the first ferry. This tour uses the public transport system and tickets are not included in the price of the tour unless you choose that ticket option. Some guests come already with public transport cards or the Oslo Pass. Public transportation cards can purchased during the on-line booking process at the check out, in our shop, or at local outlets in the city.
