On the western side of Aremarksjøen you can take a detour to Vestfjella, which offers unique outdoor experiences and the possibility of cottage accommodation.
The Vestsia road is slightly hilly and runs through farms and cultivated land. At the Skolleborg dam, you have a chance of seeing beavers. At Skotsberg, Aremarksjøen flows through the Tordivelen to Aspern and the view from the Skodberg bridge is beautiful. From here, there may be some traffic on the next 2 km of the FV21 to Fossby.
