If so, we’re more than happy to have you join us on a guided sea kayak tour around Hovedøya for an outdoor experience you won’t soon forget!

You may sit down for a chat and pick up a few tips about outdoor cooking, or you can go exploring, sunbathe or go for a swim – up to you! During the summer months, the water can be warmer than 20 degrees – perfect, right?

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 🙂
