Akerselva River Tour
Embrace your inner “Mad Goat” on a journey by kayak through the heart of Oslo down the historic Akerselva river.
Starting in the leafy-green Grünerløkka district, we pass through Grønland, under the Barcode, paddle past the ultra-modern Munch Museum and finish the tour at the Opera House Beach. The river is fringed by modern and old buildings alike, crossed by historic bridges such as Ankerbrua and Vaterland, and even features a 500m long tunnel.
This trip truly takes you through the best Oslo has to offer and is followed by an optional sauna session on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays, guaranteeing an unforgettable experience.

Utrolig gøy opplevelse å padle kajakk ned Akerselven. Proffe og flinke instruktører. Anbefales på det varmeste.
Jeg fikk Padletur på Akerselva til bursdag av kjæresten min. Helt super opplevelse. Anbefales!
Sønnen min på 13, hans onkel på besøk fra utlandet og jeg hadde en fantastisk tur ned Akerselva fra Grunerparken ved Mathallen og ut til Operaen. En god opplevelse og en annen måte å oppleve Akerselva og padling på. Anbefales varmt!! MadGoats er gode på det de gjør 🙂
