Oslo Fjord Sea Kayak Tour – Oslo City

The Oslo Fjord is one of Oslo’s many famous attractions, and a lot of people jump on the ferries to go and see the Islands – maybe you are one of the more adventurous ones?

Our City Tour is a 2hr round trip starting from our kayak raft close by the Oslo Opera house (see map below). We will paddle around Vippa, a bustling hive of activity by the waterside, and around the Akershus Fort to Aker Brygge and Tjuvholmen. During the tour our guide will point out the famous and most significant landmarks and   tell you a little about the areas history.

Are you afraid that you do not have enough experience paddling a kayak? It is not required. This tour is suitable for adventurous families, beginners, as well as experienced paddlers. If you do not completely trust yourself, you can choose either to paddle your own kayak or in a double sea kayak, which is more stable.
Anyone under 12 must paddle with another (it can also be the case sometimes that youths over 12 years old will be put in a double kayak) and participants under 18 need permission from their guardians. Do you have questions about age limits? – Please just ask!

AKERSHUS FESTNING: This fort can be seen overlooking Aker Brygge and the City Hall, the Rådhuset.

AKER BRYGGE: Once a maritime industrial hub, this is one of Oslo’s hotspots and all-time favourite for summertime bathing. From the Nobel Peace Centre to the Astrup-Fearnley modern art gallery, this ultramodern quay is a stark contrast to the fort on the opposite side.

Utrolig gøy opplevelse å padle kajakk ned Akerselven. Proffe og flinke instruktører. Anbefales på det varmeste.

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 🙂
