Description

Lindøya is an idyllic island with around 300 summer cottages in red, yellow and green. From Vippetangen in the city centre you can catch the ferry, either to the west side of Lindøya (line 93 to Lindøya vest) or to the east side (line 92 to Lindøya øst). It takes 15-20 minutes.

Southwest on Lindøya you find the best places to go swimming, and in the middle of the island there is a small shop and a football field.

The monument you can see on a hill southeast on the island, is the Christiania Meridian from 1850. Southwest there is a swimming stadium from 1949, still in use today. Close to the east-side ferry pier you can see ”Stamhuset”, which was an inn from around 1750. On the northern part of the island the flora and fauna is preserved.

You are not allowed to camp or light a fire on Lindøya! Grills can only be used on gravel or sand.
