Join us on this one-of-a-kind Oslo private tour that combines an Oslo bike tour and a serene kayak trip in the Oslofjord. (in cooperasjon with our partner Viking&Biking)

The meeting point is at Viking Biking & Hiking headquarters where you can select the bikes that best suit you and your group. From there you’ll experience a guided bike tour through the city, where we will begin in the downtown area, visit the Royal Palace, bike through the picturesque neighborhood of Frogner towards the Vigelund Sculpture Park and continue down to the Oslofjord. There will be plenty of stops along the way where you can relax and take pictures, and our guide will share a wealth of knowledge, stories and insights. Here is a chance to explore the city-side of Oslo, and get an idea of what it is like to live here as a local.
From there, our next destination is the Sjølyst Marina, where you’ll have the opportunity to experience a beautiful and peaceful side of Oslo – the seaside! At the Oslo Kayak Tours base you will receive the equipment best suited to you and we will take you through safety instructions before we head out 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, as well as the beaches and sea-cliffs 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.

After your paddling trip around the islands of Oslo and the cosy beaches, we’ll jump back on the bikes and guide you back into town following the coastal bike path. The last stop is the architecturally impressive, ultra modern Oslo harbour of Aker Brygge. This is sure to be a unique and exciting outdoor experience!

Guided tour on lake Bogstad with exciting history On request

We can offer kayak or canoe trips on the idyllic Bogstadvannet, a large freshwater lake located between Oslo and Bærum. This is a good starting point for paddling trips for families with children and for those who want a paddling trip on calm water.

The start of the trip is at the beach, where it’s easy to get into the boats. We paddle past Bogstad Manor, a beautiful estate from the 1600s and presents a splendid sight from the water.

Furthermore, we paddle to the mouth of the Sørkedalselven river, which winds its way into the valley. Here, we can paddle upstream on a winding, calm river with exciting nature and wildlife on both sides.

The trip continues to the northeastern corner of the lake and disembarks at Bjørnsgard, which can be considered a small Norwegian folk museum with several small log houses and farm buildings, the oldest building are up to 800 years old and are among the oldest well-preserved in the world. Here we take a short break with coffee and a light snack before paddling back to the beach.
