Enjoy this guided tour starting from the idyllic seaside town Drøbak 30 km south of Oslo. Wander through the forest and along the coastal path of the Oslo fjord.

Meet the guide at Skiphellestranda, one of Drøbak's beaches, hike through the woods to Ramme Gård, a famous farm and beauty spot where you can visit the country home of Norwegian artist Edvard Munch by the fjord. After lunch, we walk back to Drøbak via different route. Total distance about 10 km (6 miles), moderately challenging terrain.

During the trip you will be served a homemade Norwegian style bun and coffee. We also provide hammocks to put up between trees on the beach where you can relax, listen to the birdsong and the waves lapping the shoreline. If you want, bring a picnic or buy lunch at the Ramme Gård cafe.During the trip you can visit the small ponds where Norwegians produced ice blocks which they transported to England in the 18th century. British people got the ice and could cool down their food and maybe their gin and tonics :-)

If needed, the official information centre Visit Drøbak & Oscarsborg in the centre of the town (Havnegata 4) offers free bikes to take you to the meeting point at Skiphellestranda, about 3 km south.This trip will happen at least 3-4 times a week, more if needed. Group discounts available.
