This was a small group with 2 Excellent guides. Well, organised and kept us moving to avoid getting too cold in the snow. The snow chains provided were excellent (maybe options to buy could help? The view from the top was stunning. I really feel this could be longer, most of us wanted to continue hiking once the tour was finished. Slightly disappointed that two 7 yer old children were allowed on this tour, when it stipulated no under 13's. As they dictated the speed of the hike. That said the guides were excellent with them, trying to keep them entertained and focused to cope with the walk.

Such an amaizing adventure with the most beautiful views, there was a recorded commentury to inform you of what you was looking at. There are blankets to use to keep warm and a little bar offering hot drinkss and would deffinatly reccommend the ginger bun. The staff on board were lovely and very welcoming, there is also 2 stops at the end of the trip which was benificial if you want to explore some of the museums. Littlle tip: try to sit on the left hand side of the boat we found there was a lot more to see that side, you can stand up and move around though.

Wonderful! Our host Tom was funny and informative. The walk was beautiful and allowed us to view Oslo from on high

Guide was very informative and interesting. Great driver and fab tour.

Brilliant experience with excellent facilities and commentary.
