Guided kayaking trip in Oslo

  • Kayaking

Experience Oslo from its most beautiful side – the seaside! During the 3-hour kayaking trip in Oslo, you will get great views of the city and the nature surrounding Norway's capital!

During this 3- hour trip you can get not only a short introduction to kayaking, but 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. After that, we head out from our private 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 houseboats and other special vessels, the modern architecture on Fornebu, and the beaches along the coast of the peninsula Bygdøy.

Kayak experience is not necessary as 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.
