I have sailed in and out of many scenic ports but one of my favorites is the approach and departure through the Oslo Fjord into and out of Oslo, Norway.
Beautiful seaside homes dot the landscape making this a picturesque port to visit.
This was my first visit to Oslo and, although it rained heavy during my entire visit, the weather cleared as we were leaving port giving way to some of the most beautiful scenery I have seen.
The iconic Dyna Lighthouse, located on a reef, is reachable only by boat.
At first, because of the shape of it, we thought this was a private cottage before discovering it is, in fact, an active lighthouse having been established in 1875.
We saw lots of pleasure craft like this one heading in to port.
If you are lucky enough to own one of these gorgeous homes along the shoreline in the Norwegian capital, you can simply back your boat up to the front lawn and park it!
The scenery changed from the higher density of the city to more rural landscapes like the one below.
We enjoyed our time in Norway and hope to visit again with better weather.
