 Akerselva river

Akerselva river or Akerselven river flows through Oslo. It starts at Maridalsvannet in Oslomarka, and follows the urban areas Nordre Aker, Sagene, Grünerløkka, Oslo centre and Grønland, whereby it finally ends at Paulsenkaien and Oset in Bjørvika. The river is considered to be a part of the Nordmarkvassdraget and is about 8.2 kilometres long.

Akerselva river is called "Oslo´s green lung" and many parks and nature trails are to be found by its path, from Grønland to Maridalsvannet. A walk from along Akerselva river from the rural Frysja down through the different parts of Oslo all the way down to the city centre is an amazing experience and a walk through the history of Oslo. Earlier, the Akerselva river gave power to numerous industry companies in Oslo. Salmon run and spawn in the upper part of the river.
