Explore Oslo from water! First we will take you on a nature hike along Lysaker river in the green neighborhood of Oslo. Explore the waterfalls, rapids and rich birdlife along this beautiful river. The next part is a Kayak tour on the Oslofjord - an experience you will treasure for the rest of your life.

This tour combines both the hiking in the beautiful nature of Oslo and an amazing kayak adventure.
P.S: A 24- hour ticket for public transportation is included in the price.

Day 1: Enjoy a stroll along the Lysaker river

Enjoy a stroll along the Lysaker river in the green neighborhood of Oslo. The trip starts at 13:00 outside Oslo Visitor Centre at Jernbanetorget in Oslo city centre. From there we will take the Røa Line to idyllic Røa.

We will slowly hike down towards the Lysaker river. There is a charming and accessible path along the riverbank. You will love it! Norway is a land of waterfalls and some of them (small but powerfull) are located right in Oslo.

We will cross bridges, enjoy waterfalls, frothing rapids, lush trees and the twitter of birds. The trip finishes at Jar station where we will hop on the metro and arrive back at Jernbanetorget, where we started.

It is a real Norwegian experience not far from the city center!

Day 2. Discover Oslo on a kayak

On Bestumkilen at 10:00 you will be greeted by good friends from the Oslo Kayak Tours, and your adventure continues in peaceful paddling on the Oslo Fjord. There you can experience Oslo from another beautiful side - the seaside- and you can't get closer to the nature! During a 3- hour trip you can get not only a short introduction to kayaking, we will also show you some highlights of the city and its surrounding nature.  At our base in the sheltered marina you will receive the equipment best suited to you and we will take you through safety instructions and basic techniques before we head out from our privat beach on the water of the Oslofjord. From here it is only a short way to small islands and nice sandy beaches. The guides will share information on sights like the picturesque marina with its house boats and other special vessels, the modern architecture on Fornebu and the beaches along the coast of the peninsula Bygdøy.

Kayak experience is not necessary, we adapt our tours to our guests. We use single and double kayaks and will provide you with the boat that fits you and your abilities best.

Travelling is all about sharing experiences, so why not go on hike together with friends or family, and book one of our tours as a larger group? We will be delighted to offer you a group discount:

  • Small groups of 5-10 can save 5% per person
  • Groups of 10+ can save 10% per person
