A silent passage over clear water makes you experience Oslo and it surroundings from a different perspective. This is the way to enjoy nature in an active and simultaneously completely Co2-neutral way.


It takes only 10 minutes by public transport from the citycenter to our base. With us you reach nature after a few paddle strokes. Cosy beaches and beautiful little islands invite for encounters with the localwild life.

To experience your surroundings and simultaneously to help preserving it enhances the good feeling to be one with nature. On all of our tours our guides collect plastic from the beaches and the water and encourage our guests to do the same.


If you can swim you can also paddle. You will certainly have fun with us and can be as active as you want to. Beaches, islands, small groups and inspiring instructors help you to try out new things and to experience the ocean actively in a kayak. With us you can be sporty in a relaxing way.
