I had a cracking day out with the lads at Bjørvika taking the våttkort it's was a thoroughly enjoyable/fulfilling experience and 100% worth the effort let alone the money. Unfortunately I cannot remember our groups instructors name the German fella, but he was a very nice,fun and professional guy. We learnt a lot all the while having a blast 😃. Will definitely be back for more courses and tours with them at Mad Goats, and also heading up to their partner location at Sjoa after winter. See you's on the water Guy's & Gal's 👍👍

You have reviewed the wrong company. We are not a bar; we are a kayak and sauna company. 😊

Nice, chill adventure for single people, couples or friends.
Exciting to see Oslo from another angle.
Kind and friendly guide took good care of us all. Explained and showed everything.
This adventure is safe for kids too.

I did the river tour today. It was guided unprofessionally, only 1 guide for nearly 15 people , but 2 people to drive the car from start to end. No help to get into to boat or out of it, even for total beginners. The guide couldn't see the whole group during the trip. She asked for an voluntary guest to stay at the back (no interest if this is an experienced person). In the tunnel this person passed me without noticing. I totaly lost orientation (hit the wall several times) and the connection to the group, but nobody cared about.
Even if they don't tell you, you will get wet because they don't have the splash protection you normally use in an kayak.
I felt really unprofessionally guided and unsecure. I wouldn't recommend the tour, at least if you don't have any experience

I can't comment on this particular experience from many years ago, but I can assure you that over the last few years we have worked a lot on our standards of training, professionalism and river safety. If you ever visit Oslo again please get in touch and hopefully you can join us for another tour.

What an amazing experience taking a kayaking course in Oslo city. The highlight was being able to paddle right outside my favorite place in Oslo, the Opera House

Thanks to Thomas for making this such a memorable experience.
