  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We are 50 minutes from Oslo, with everything that Oslo has to offer.

    Around Ringerike where we live one can find Hadeland glassworks and The Kistefos Museum are two of Norway’s most famous cultural attractions, and you can experience them on a trip to Ringerike. Or you could simply enjoy what the lakes and forests of the region have to offer.

    Ringerike is a municipality and also a traditional region in Eastern Norway, dominated by a lush countryside with lakes, hills and farmland. Visitors generally come for recreation, bicycling and walking in the woods, or skiing in the winter.

    The area is also an eldorado for those who enjoy fishing, and the lakes of Tyrifjorden and Sperillen are full of trout and perch. The beaches along these lakes are also popular places for the whole family during summer, and for activities such as canoeing, bathing and birdwatching.

    One of the best sites for bicycling and hiking is the woods of Krokskogen. Here you will find Krokkleiva, a famous preserved road along which artists, kings and other people have travelled for ages. It is part of Gamle Kongevegen (“the Old King's Road”) to Bergen, which runs through Krokskogen to Bærums Verk just outside Oslo.
