Embrace your inner “Mad Goat” on an adventure down the historic Akerselva River on a kayak or stand up paddleboard (SUP)!
This trip truly takes you through the best Oslo has to offer and is followed by an optional sauna session, guaranteeing an unforgettable experience.
Starting in the leafy-green Grünerløkka district, we pass through Grønland, underneath Oslo Central Station, paddle past the ultra-modern Munch Museum and finish the tour at the Opera House Beach. Our tour takes you through the heart of Oslo – the river fringed by modern and old buildings alike, and crossed by historic bridges such as Ankerbrua and Vaterland. We even paddle through a 500m long tunnel!
Perfect for group events such as team building, kick off events, birthdays and bachelor parties.
More info about the tour:
