Travel to Oslo and you'll discover that island-hopping in Oslofjord is one of the most fascinating activities in the summer months. Discover pristine beaches at Hvervenbukta and Ingierstrand, a 1930s bathing-resort, or head for the island of Hovedøya, which has a nature reserve. If it's fresh water swimming you're in the mood for, Frysja is the place to be.
Surrounded by forests, Oslo is ideal for biking or walking. Take the tram or train to Maridalen for an afternoon of exploration, or enjoy skiing and sledding in the Holmenkollen area, in the winter. The city has many green spaces, so pack a picnic and make for Sofienberg Park or Frogner Park, which are ideal for family strolls. In Frogner Park you'll find three outdoor pools and water slides, ideal for cooling off on hot summer days.
To experience Oslo’s natural spectacle, take a stroll on the Beier Bridge, along the Akerselva River, where the Waterfall at Mølla can be found.
