The route around Rømsjøen takes in varied terrain and offers exciting nature and cultural experiences.

Rømskog Church is the starting point for the trip. The church is situated on a beautiful promontory facing Rømsjøen and is worth visiting, both from inside and outside. One kilometre later, you reach Kurøen museum and cultural centre. The area around Kurøen provides opportunities for fishing, picnicking and swimming. During summer weekends, there is also open-air dining at Kurøen. South of Kurøen, the route goes past Sandvika. This is a 5,000 year old Stone Age dwelling with cooking pits. Today, Sandvika has also been adapted into a bathing area.

Going onward to the south-east, a gravel road leads to the border. At Nordre Posttjern, you can see border post number 49 from 1753. At the southern end of Rømsjøen we have the Trosterud School Museum from 1860. At the time, the school had a permanent teacher who lived in the schoolroom. It was closed down in 1940 and became a school museum in 1977. The museum has beautiful outdoor areas where you can eat a picnic.
