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.
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.
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.
