Going around Øymarkssjøen offers you natural and cultural experiences along a varied route, with great opportunities for activities and experiences along the way.
From Li there is a beautiful view over Øymarksjøen. There are large farms and cornfields here. At Strømsfoss you can visit the museum and art gallery, as well as the indoor shop and café. From the pier, the MS Brekke goes along the river. A detour to Bøensætre may be well worth considering. Bøensætre offers pre-booked courses and lessons, food, drinks and accommodation. Further along the route, there is a picnic area with a toilet at Otteidvika. The route leaves the FV 21 towards Stikle – Buer and Ørje and runs through forest and farmland scenery where you may be lucky to catch a glimpse of the King of the Forest. Keen birdwatchers are recommended to make a stop by Gjølsjøen on the way back to Ørje.
