Akerselva river tour is one of the best experiences Oslo has to offer. It starts in the leafy-green Grünerløkka district, under some historic bridges such as Ankerbrua and Vaterland, through Grønland and through a 500m long tunnel to take you underneath Oslo Central Station! The tour ends where the Akerselva meets Oslofjord, at the ultra-modern Munch Museum. Choose between kayak or stand up paddleboard (SUP), and explore Oslo in a very unique way.

Tour info:

  • The tour lasts 90 minutes.
  • Kit hire included – kayak or SUP, life vest, paddle and helmet.
  • Suitable for all ages and abilities from 10 years upwards.
  • The starting point is at Nedre Foss Park, only an 11-minute ride on public transport or a 20-minute walk from Oslo Central Station.

"Great kayak tour down the river into the fjord finishing by the opera house. Fun tour guides. Nice to see the river and the fjord at the same trip."
