Østfold is an eldorado for swimming. Warm and clear water, warm summer temperatures and nice people at the beach. When it is colder, Sarpsborg has several good alternatives indoors.
Many of our guests come here to fish. We got the Ågårsd river just by, and Glomma runs through the city. We got several lakes in inner Østfold, and even ocean fishing in the Oslo fjord.
Who knew? Sarpsborg, in the middle of "flat" Østfold has an excellent alpine ski centre. Just north of the city, you'll find Kjerrringåsen Alpinsenter. A large and modern ski centre, with three lifts and four slopes, one suitable for children.
