Pilegrims boat Skibladner
Originally from 1856, it is the oldest paddle steamer in the world still operating a scheduled service. It now has protected cultural heritage status and in summer operates a scheduled service between Eidsvoll and the lakeside towns of Hamar, Gjøvik, Lillehammer and Moelv. Skibladner is a pilgrimage boat and therefore offers special prices to pilgrims who carry a pilgrim's passport.
The steamer is named after Skíðblaðnir, the ship of Freyr in Norse mythology.
