Skibladner D/S

Skibladner is sailing again! The world's oldest paddle steamer from 1856 still runs on Mjøsa.

Welcome to Skibladner D/S

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.

After several years break due to bridge construction, Skibladner sails again down the river Vorma to Eidsvoll wharf. Join us on a spectacular cruise with the passage of four bridges on the way down to the constitutional city.

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

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