About
Whether you take this self-guided GPS audio tour on an early Sunday morning or a busy Tuesday afternoon, you will always experience the area and paths as a break from everyday life - a green and fresh lung that provides you with extra energy and joy of life. VoiceMap takes you on a tour upstream the river of Akerselva, from the busy downtown by the traffic machines, the Central Station and the Bus Terminal at Vaterland, and about 3 kilometres up to Sagene, where it ends by a cosy café next to a waterfall. The tour takes about 45 minutes, without stop. While you walk, Lars will tell you the story of Akerselva, and its surrounding areas. Along the way, you'll hear how the river shaped the industrial evolution of Oslo, and how it was brought back from environmental degradation, to become the tranquil, green artery of Oslo. … NB! The tour is wheelchair accessible, but be aware that the path may be steep in some places.

Akerselva en perle i Oslo
Akerselva er en perle. Å vandre fra Frysja til Bjørvika langs elva er bare en opplevelse, så mye å se og oppleve, ca 10 km slankt nedover . Nye inntrykk hele veien, og mange fine kafeer og restauranter under veis. Det er bare Å suge inn mens man vandrer , ha god tid.

Una nueva experiencia, un paseo tranquilo, conocer la esencia de la ciudad.
Conocer algo de historia, la zona no turística y más tradicional.
