Daytrip with Skibladner D/S

Join us for a day trip with the world's oldest paddle steamer from 1856!

Day round trip with Skibladner D/S

After a stay of several years due to bridge construction, Skibladner sails again down the river Vorma to Eidsvoll wharf. So why not make yourself a full-day tour with Skibladner?

For example, you can take the train to Eidsvoll station, where it is only a short walk of about 10 minutes down to the pier where Skibladner picks you up. Sail to Hamar and here it's an equally short walk from the dock back to the train to Eidsvoll.

This summer Skibladner sails between Gjøvik & Hamar down to Eidsvoll round trip every Tuesday and Friday with departure from Eidsvoll at 14.40.

From Oslo there is a train to Eidsvoll 2 times an hour and the trip takes about 35 minutes.

You can turn up directly at the piers and buy a ticket from a ticket agent, or reserve tickets online to ensure you get a seat. Read more on Skibladner's own website for timetables and ports.

Skibladner has served Mjøsa since 1856 and was originally built as an extension of Norway's first railway between Christiania and Eidsvoll in 1854. Skibladner was the onward connection between Eidsvoll and Lillehammer. In recent years, Skibladner has been restored with the help of funds from the National Archives and today appears as a floating museum.

The ship was awarded the Norwegian Cultural Heritage's "Olavsrosa" quality label. The ship has a restaurant (1st place Matsalon), cafeteria (2nd place Matsalon), men's and women's salon.
For catchy happy jazz, accordion or a classical concert on deck, Skibladner is available for charter trips from the end of May to mid-September.
Just as famous as the ship itself is the traditional menu on board in the 1st place dining room, namely salmon and strawberries. This menu has long traditions on board, but it is of course possible to order other dishes. The ship can seat up to 130 people seated at tables in the various lounges.

Welcome to a enjoyable trip on the world's oldest paddle steamer!
