    Skibladner is a paddle steamer operating on the lake of Mjøsa, the largest lake in Norway.

    It is the world's oldest steamship still in operation, and her maiden voyage was on August 2, 1856.

    On June 14, 2005, the Norwegian Directorate for Cultural Heritage decided to preserve Skibladner. This was the first time in Norway that an operating vehicle was listed.

    The steamer is named after the ship of Freyr in Norse mythology; Skíðblaðnir.

    Mjøsa is Norways largest lake, 117 km long from Minnesund in the south to Lillehammer in the north. It is also the second deepest lake in Norway and Europe.

    It lies in the southern part of Norway, about 100 km north of Oslo.

    The cities of Hamar, Gjøvik, and Lillehammer were founded along the shores of the lake.
