What you can expect
The tour starts below Mathallen in the Vulcan area and takes about 1,5 hours. From here we paddle through the middle of town, surrounded by old and new buildings. We continue down to Grønland and through a 500m long tunnel that comes out beside the opera house into the Oslo fjord. We take up the boats here. This is a quiet part of the river and is ideal for both beginners and those who have paddled before.

This trip is suitable for those who have only seen kayaking on TV and for those who have paddled a little before.
Ps. Tunnel is a little dark in some places, but the instructor will have a head lamp.
