Akerselva River Kayak Tour
Paddle the Akerselva river in a kayak. Our kayaks are very stable and easy to manoeuvre even if you are an absolute beginner. If you enjoy your kayak tour in Oslo with us, we can recommend joining on one of our guided sea kayak tours on Oslo Fjord or our whitewater kayaking activities in Sjoa.
Akerselva River Packraft Tour
Paddle the Akerselva River in a packraft! Packrafts are super stable and easy to move around. For this reason a lot of people are becoming interested in packrafting, as they allow you to experience whitewater rivers in a controlled and safe manner.

Akerselva Kayak Tour History
Over 9 years ago, Tomas Hansson moved to Oslo after working up in Sjoa as a raft guide. Back then no one was running kayak or packraft tours on Akerselva as it had not be thought of….yet! As a kayaker and a raft guide Tomas saw the Akerselva River just as any other river, even though it was running through the heart of a city. What this meant is that like any other river, it could be paddled, but importantly you could also run kayak tours on it. This resulted in Tomas being the first person to found the famous Akerselva Kayak Tour, and since then he has taken 1000’s of happy people down this beautiful river and initiated many river clean ups, cleaning rubbish out of the water and along the river banks. Akerselva is an amazing asset of Oslo, a true gem. And we at Mad Goats hope to keep showing people this amazing river for a very long time.
