Hovedoya, Oslo Overview

Hovedoya is one of the many little wooded islands in Oslofjord, located off the coast of Oslo. A magical 10-minute ferry ride from the Centre of Oslo lands you in the land of lush greens. Hovedoya offers peaceful strolls by the woodlands through solitary beaches and rocky coves.

Preliminary sights from Hovedoya include medieval ruins, wide varieties of trees and flowers, and some remarkable canons at the top of the island as a military base that existed for a long time. Additionally, in the centre of the island is a lovely cafe where you can get delicious meals. (Klosterkroa Cafe).

The tickets to Hovedoya can be purchased from a shop next to the ferry docks or can be booked through the Ruter app. The entire island can be explored in an hour. Then, you can either board the ferry B2 or B3 that is scheduled every 30 minutes on your way back.
