Walking tour - approx. 4 hours


"Elv" means river. Our walk takes us along the river, Akerselven, from the metro station Nydalen, and down to the city centre, approx. 5km.

The river is 8 km long starting from Maridalsvannet (a lake) and ending in the Oslofjord. The river has 30 waterfalls and 20 bridges. The tour takes you past modern suburbs, forested areas, historical buildings, fishing and swimming spots, and Oslo's old industrial area. On our way we might make a break at "Mathallen" a new foodmarket, and enjoy a snack and a softdrink. The foodmarket itself is worth a visit, just to have a look at the Norwegian delicacies.

Then we will continue the walk down the river, passing the "Fairytale" bridge into the vibrant Torggata, before ending the tour on the mainstreet of Oslo, Karl Johans gate.
