Welcome aboard!

Welcome to a world of exciting sights, sounds and smells. Unspoiled scenery. Warm hospitality. And a ship that’s been sailing for 160 years!

The world's oldest preserved paddle steamer in timetabled service, with live steam engines, paddle wheels and a speed of 12 knots. "Skibladner" is the pride of Norway's inland, and one of Norway's best-loved tourist attractions. You can easily make a day trip on her if you are staying in the Oslo area – or planning to visit Lillehammer. 
Skibladner was launched on August 2, 1856 – and has plied the waters of Lake Mjøsa ever since. Originally an express passenger and goods service from the north to the south of the lake, she is now a cherished tourist attraction and preserved historic vessel operating as a living museum.
Treat yourself to a culinary experience by dining at one of the district’s best restaurants — aboard a working paddle steamer! Skibladner’s first class dining saloon has a proud 167-year history and serves the famous salmon & strawberries menu as well as many others.
A voyage on this unique vessel is an experience not to be missed! Skibladner sails between the villages and towns around Lake Mjøsa as she has always done: Lillehammer, Moelv, Gjøvik, Hamar and Eidsvoll — idyllic country towns basking in the Norwegian summer sunshine.

Sailings daily (except Mondays) from late June to mid-August. See timetable here and book you ticket here
