Cycle through historic towns and rustic coastal communities along the Oslo Fjord. Enjoy wining and dining by canals and harbours. Explore ancient monuments and rock carvings, and see Viking ships being built. Discover the artistic legacy of Edvard Munch at the Munch Museum in Oslo and visit his summer residence in Ramme. Walk in his footsteps in Jeløya and Fredrikstad, and see his best-preserved home in Åsgårdstrand.

As you cycle along the gentle fjord landscapes and beaches, you’ll pass through rich agricultural lands on small, low-traffic roads. The beauty of the fjord is truly captivating, and there are many attractions and sights to explore. Some of the ancient monuments tell of settlements that date back 8000 years.

One of the highlights of the trip is the ferry journey from Strömstad in Sweden, where the fjord meets the ocean, to the west side of the fjord. Along the way, you’ll pass by idyllic islands and lighthouses, making for a truly unforgettable experience. The tour also takes you to some of the most significant Viking sites in Norway. In Tønsberg, the country’s oldest town, you can witness a Viking ship being built and see a replica of the famous Oseberg ship at Tønsberg harbour.

For art lovers, the trip offers a unique opportunity to explore the artistic legacy of Norway’s most famous painter, Edvard Munch. Munch had a lifelong love for nature, especially for the coast and the Oslo Fjord. In Oslo, you can discover his works at the Munch Museum, which is dedicated entirely to his art. At Ramme in the community of Hvitsten, you can see Munch’s summer residence and walk along the cultural trail that inspired many of his works. Munch spent several years at Jeløya in Moss, where he found great inspiration from the surroundings. In Fredrikstad, you can wander in his footsteps, visiting six places that he had a special connection to. The small, yellow wooden house right by the sea in Åsgårdstrand is the best-preserved of Munch’s homes that still stands to this day. Here, you can take a walk on the jetty where “The girls on the bridge” caught his eye, an experience that is sure to leave a lasting impression.
