Reviews for our Kayak rental Oslo and guided tours:
21 minutes drive from the Central Station/Opera. 31 min with bus. We will send you details after booking, making your transport hassle free.
The lake is a hidden pearl. A bit like Alaska. Most guest spend 3 or 4 hours here and here are many places to go on land, and relax. Bring food and enjoy a great day in the wilderness.
Kayak certificate - Kayak rental Oslo
You don’t need a licence to kayak here. Some places you need a kayak certificate to rent a kayak. That makes sense if the waves are big, or there are boats and ships passing by. Or far from land. None of that is a problem here. But you must be sober. And you have to wear a flotation device (which is always included). If you are unsure about kayaking, a guided tour is a good alternative. (no guided tours before the virus is gone)

Yes, we have free parking for you.

Kids over seven years will normally paddle without any trouble. You might consider to bring a rope, if you need to pull the kid’s kayak.
Spray skirt will increase the risk, if you don’t have kayak experience. Personally, I never use spray skirt on this lake, because it’s no waves or boats here. I rather wear rain clothes if it’s heavy rain.
Yes. We have many vests, from 15 kilos up to 90+. Vest, paddle and map are always included for Kayak rental Oslo.
We have tried 50 different kayaks, and finally found our favorite: Riot Quest 10. You will love it. See pictures at the bottom of this page.
Some people think that it’s necessary to know the eskimo roll to kayak. That’s good to know if you paddle with a tight spray skirt, or paddle during difficult conditions. The conditions here are easy: No waves, no boats. It’s unlikely to tip over. In the unlikely event of tipping over, you will automatically slide out of the kayak. It’s short way to land. Safer conditions for kayaking are hard to find.
Yes, it’s a great place to hike.
No, but there is an outdoor toilet on the first island. The place is pinned on the map you get from us. It’s also possible to take a piss in the forest, just don’t leave ANY trash.
In the waterproof room in the kayaks, or by the house. We also have two deck bags if you need more space.
