Up close and personal on the fjords...

We were a bit disappointed with the sights (or lack of sights) of Oslo, so we decided to get out of the city the next day. The tourist information office (next to the Central train station) recommended going to a seaside town about an hour south of Oslo, called Drobak. The bus was quite slow as it stopped in what seemed like every village along the way (in hindsight, I'd say get the #542 bus rather than #541 as it's more direct).
Drobak itself has a lovely location on the fjord. We walked down to the waterside and the views were stunning. The snow-capped fjords stood out beautifully in the winter sunshine which made for some great photos. As it was winter, there wasn't much going on and not many people about.
So I would recommend Drobak for a day trip from Oslo if want to get out of the city for a few hours and see some of the impressive scenery in the area around it.
