Fjords around Oslo?

Can anyone tell me if there are fjords around Oslo, other than out of Bergen? I have done the Norway in a Nutshell trip, which was spectacular, but some friends said that they went through the fjords while on a cruise ship that stopped in Oslo. Their ship was doing the Baltic route not a fjord trip. I didn't realize that there are fjords between the port for Oslo and Stockholm (which was their next port).
Thanks for any help.

Well, Oslo is actually on a fjord - not that apparent while you're in the city, but when you leave to go out into the sea.

Oslo Fjord has none of the towering cliffs of the fjords in western Norway. I would describe it as scenic rather than spectacular.

Thank you nytraveler and Heimdall for the info.
As I said, I was wondering about that from what I had read
before.

Yes, Oslo Fjord IS a fjord. But it is not what most tourists think of when the think of Norwegian fjords, nor is it like what you saw on the Norway in a Nutshell tour. For that you'll have to go to western Norway.
