Rivercruise with M/S Elvekongen
Welcome to a river cruise on Glomma and Vorma with MS Elvekongen
M/S Elvekongen was brought from Lofoten to Årnes 30 years ago. Since 1993, the boat has been in scheduled and charter traffic on Glomma and Vorma.
After an accident in the winter of 2021, the boat was refurbished from the ground up, and in the anniversary year it is in better condition than ever.
Elvekongen runs a three-hour route every Sunday in June, July and August, in July there is also a route on Saturdays. The route trips normally include sluicing in Svanfoss.
Food and drink can be bought in the boat's kiosk, and Elvekongen has all rights.
In addition to the scheduled tours, some special tours are set up. Examples include a prawn cruise on Midsummer's Eve, a jazz cruise on Friday 18 August and a pirate cruise for children on Saturday 23 September.
Elvekongen can also be chartered by companies, associations and others. The boat is well suited for anniversaries, weddings, confirmations and other private gatherings.
Elvekongen has room for 45 passengers and is based at Årnes brygge, which is right next to Årnes station. There is a good train connection from Oslo, and by car it is only 45 minutes from the center of Oslo and 30 minutes from Oslo Airport Gardermoen.
