It’s Springtime and a Sunny Day here in Oslo this Saturday. What are people doing when the Sun shines and it is still lot’s of Snow in the Hills and Ice on the Fiord? How does it looks like?
Lets take a tour along the shores of the inner part of the Oslofiord.

Lets start our tour in Southern Oslo, at Hvervenbukta. See, it is still Ice on the Fiord, which has been rare for many years. Far out you can see some people – fishing.
Some people prefere to enjoy the last of the Winter for a final Cross Country Skiing in the Hills. But it is as well popular to go to the Seaside and enjoy the Sun. Here is the proof.
The two photos on top shows divers traning under-ice diving. They did find a wreck. The Divers are connected to the Ice surface with a Rope. Down left: Memories from last Summer and down right: Young girls checking the Ice.
Naked trees at the Seaside. It’s a nice walking path along the Shore, you can walk for around for45 minutes. Go up on the Hill with a nice view over the Oslofiord. Or just sit down in the Nature and have a nice time at the Beachfront.
Well, this was a short visit to Hvervenbukta in Oslo South. Now I will bring you to the Peninsula where I grew up: Bygdöy. Here from the Royal Farm. Still lots of Snow.
We will go to the very popular Beach at Huk. It’s about 20 km via the Operatunnel and then to the West and South again. The Photos are taken from the Naturist part of the Beach, but no Nudes this time of year. LOL:-)
I think you will understand this Day was not meant for swimming… Fascinating with the Iceblocks on the Rocks. From top left: Ice on rocks. the inlet separating the Naturist Beach from the textile beach, down left view westward and down right view eastward.
West of the Beach the old Oslo Airport
used to be (until Oct 7, 1998). Today it houses IT-industry, In-door Sport Arena, Businesses and a new City is under construction.

Let’s end this tour at a very special place: Rodelökken Kafe, located at the northern part of Bygdöy.
First part of the House is from 1780 and the Cafe opened in 1874
The Cafe is very popular during the Summer Months. It opened for the Season this Saturday. Up right you see part of the original building. The Panel is renewed. Down under you see the view from Rodelökken. Oslo West End and Frognerkilen, one of the two inlets that makes Bygdöy
Out here at Bygdöy peninsula you will also find the Viking Ships Museum, The Kon Tiki and Ra
and the Polarship Fram
and the Norwegian Museum of Cultural History
outdoor and indoor museum where you can see how people have lived here in Norway the past 1000 years.
