Join us for a green excursion on this reconstructed renaissance boat! Experience Oslo like you have never seen it before, from the lower sea side! 

This is a unique trip, where the crew on board, is actually the ones that build the boat, telling you about the old city of Oslo, with an archeological perspective. You will soon feel like a part of the crew, and you will be given the chance to row an set sail if the wind allow it. You will feel how the winds almost lifts the boat in the sail through the sea, all quiet and firm. No foregoing sailing knowlegde is necessary to participate.
