Skibladner – an unforgettable voyage
Skibladner is the world’s oldest Skibladner is the world’s oldest paddle steamer in timetabled service and one of Norway’s best-loved attractions. In August 2023 the ship will be 167 years old. She is still powered by her steam engines from 1888 and offers a uniquely authentic experience of steamship travel in the 1800s.
In season, the ship stops at the ports of Brumunddal, Nes and Moelv as it passes through Ringsaker.
The sound of the steam engine and the paddling wheels contribute to the unique atmosphere on board Skibladner. On the passage over the lake Mjøsa, the sounds and smells on board are the same as they were more than 160 years ago. Lean back and enjoy as the landscape passes by and take a well-deserved break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
An unforgettable journey
The ship’s restaurant is renowned for its cuisine, and many passengers enjoy a meal on the voyage. Skibladner crosses the lake back and forth going from port to port, and takes thousands of passengers every season. A trip on “the white swan” can easily be combined with other activities. For instance, you can bring your own bike on board and explore the island of Helgøya by bike, visit Maihaugen at Lillehammer or Domkirkeodden at Hamar, all combined with an unforgettable voyage on Skibladner.
Ensure your passage
You can choose whether you want a round trip from the port, or whether you want one of the other ports to be your final destination. To ensure your passage, you may want to buy tickets in advance, and don’t forget to make reservations if you want the whole package with a meal on board.
