Cruising in Oslofjord, Norway

It seems like yesterday when we had an awesome cruise in Scandinavia. It was only a 5-days cruise trip but I am already happy and contented with it. One of the areas we passed by during our cruise was Oslofjord. It was around 8:00 in the evening when we passed this area of Norway. The was slowly setting down that time and you can see some of the of the hills around.

That was so far a very memorable and wonderful cruise trip we had in Scandinavia visiting  Oslo, Norway and Copenhagen, Denmark.

We boarded Aidabella cruise ship during our  cruise trip in Scandinavia recently.
Each of the islands in the innermost part of the fjord has its own identity and distinguishing history. Among them are Hovedøya, Lindøya, Nakholmen, Bleikøya, Gressholmen, and Langøyene. These islands can easily be reached with the Oslo-boats from Vippetangen. Hovedøya is most famous for its monastery ruins, Gressholmen for its rabbits, Nakholmen, Bleikøya, Lindøya for their cosy cabins at the water’s edge, and finally Langøyene for its camping possibilities and pleasant beach.

You can find many summer houses in Oslofjord.  There are also boats on the little port of Oslofjord.
The Oslofjord (Norwegian: Oslofjorden) is an inlet in the south-east of Norway, stretching from an imaginary line between the Torbjørnskjær and Færder lighthouses and down to Langesund in the south to Oslo in the north. It is part of the Skagerrak strait, connecting the North Sea and the Kattegat sea area, which leads to the Baltic Sea.
