What to do in the Drammen Region

Try gorge jumping at Kjøsterudjuvet Canyon, play golf in a picturesque landscape or feel the strong pull of a salmon in the Drammenselva river.

Enjoy the fresh air 

In Finnemarka, a wooded mountain area, there is a huge network of paths and trails. Here you can cycle, walk, run or ride to your heart's content.

Along the coast you can follow "Kyststien", a waymarked coastal path between Røyken, Hurum, Sande and Svelvik. If you prefer travelling by boat, feel free to dock your boat in Holmsbu or one of the other marinas in the region.

Play golf

The many golf courses in the Drammen region are all located just 10-40 minutes by car from the center of Drammen. The golf courses are so densely situated that you in the course of a long weekend, can go golfing from place to place. At Kjekstad Golf Club you will find a typical forest course idyllically situated in an area with woods, cliffs and water obstacles as well as a vibrant wildlife.

Try gorge jumping at Kjøsterudjuvet

The Kjøsterudjuvet gorge is a 10,000-year-old gorge just ten minutes from downtown Drammen. This ravine in the mountain side is 4,265 feet long with a rise of 820 feet. The vertical walls are up to 196 feet high and the ravine is only 13 feet wide at its most narrow point.

Go fishing

The Drammenselva river is a good place to try salmon fishing. In the spring, the sea trout fishing along the entire coastal strip from Sande to Slemmestad is an experience of its own. Extremely active fish preservation measures ensure that there are plenty of fish to catch, even in easily accessible waters.

Visit a farm

Bring the children to one of the many open farms in the region. Here, they can go riding and play in the hay. At Sand Farm in Hurum they can experience hens, sheep, pigs, ducks, rabbits, turkeys, horses and cats. Sand Farm also has a small café which sells delicious cakes and bread.

Go swimming at Drammensbadet baths

Here you will find several pools, both indoors and outdoors, including a 165-feet pool. In Drammensbadet baths you will in addition find water slides, climbing walls and more.

Watch the Drammen street life

Drammen is a modern city with pulsating culture and street life. In the middle of the city lies the Bragernes Torg square, one of Scandinavia’s largest town squares, which is the site for florists and vegetable vendors, an artificial skating rink, concerts, political rallies, street theaters and other amusements.

Have fun at a festival

At the region's annual festivals in August and September you will find local food straight from the farmer, exciting activities for the children and much more. The River Festival in Drammen can tempt you with outdoor concerts featuring world class performers, a fun fair, a dragon boat race, exhibitions and amusements.
