Just realised that I never did update this thread.  My friend and I are heading for Oslo tonight and heading over to Lunde tomorrow.  From there the hire company are giving us a lift down to the Landsmarka area.  We'll be paddling around for a few days until Wednesday.  After a night in Lunde we then are going to try and strike it rich by heading down a silver mine on Thursday.  From there we head back to Oslo to take in the local museums etc.  High on my hit list are the Viking Longships and the Kon-tiki and Ra II.

Huge thanks to Grathr for putting up with my barrage of questions. :cheers:

This is going to be a great trip and I am very envious!

I did a trip to north Norway fjords about 20 years back... Best time of my life ever! Just hoping to get back some day...

I have not much experience in Canoeing, in fact my only trip so far is all experience I have, but it was a fine trip. It´s been a while since then, but the Mecklenburgische Seenplatte in Germany, Mecklenburg Vorpommern is really a nice place - The waters are timid so inexperienced paddlers won´t getr frustrated but there is enough lakes, canals and rivers to keep you paddling for weeks.

I was there in the early nineties as the leader of a scout group and we mostly camped wild or on little campsites along the shores and riversides. You can hire canoes in nearly every place around the lakes.

There are some nice little rivers in my area liek the Lahn and Sieg where you can Canoe, too. Some rentaly even offer hiring someplace and pickup a few days down the river.

If Germany is interesting for you, I can have a look for current rentals and locations.

Sounds like a great trip!  Check out the Fram museum, across the street from the Kon-Tiki museum (I enjoyed it a lot more). Fram was Nansen's ship in the Arctic, and Amundsen's ship in the Antarctic. An excellent museum on polar exploration. Also check out the Folkemuseum, next door to the Viking ship museum.

Seems like I had a mental misfire as I was quite late to your party... :facepalm: Maybe keep germany in mind for a future trip and enjoy this one!
