Eastern Norway Viken MARKER

Bicycle: "Swedish route” Buer-Väng

  • Storgata 55, Marker
  •  /  km From You
Overview

The Swedish route from Buer to Väng back via Mon to Buer is a lovely route on a gravel road involving varied terrai 
through two countries. The countryside is characterised by forest, agriculture, ponds and lakes. The route is hilly. The route starts in Buerkrysset and goes along Vängsveien on hilly terrain across the border down through the forest to the Swedish agricultural location of Väng and the Foxen lake, with good picnic opportunities. You’ll need to bring provisions on this trip.

The route goes south for about 8 km towards Bästnäs, where a car graveyard has become a popular tourist destination. The road then turns once more towards the border with Norway via Mon where you pass one of the 18th century border posts.

The route back to Buerkrysset goes past Rørvik Camping, with a good opportunity to take a dip. From Buerkrysset, you can combine the trip with
another journey: “Around Buerkroken” to Ørje.

Time: 2-3 hours
Road surface: Gravel throughout.
Bicycle requirements: Standard bicycle
Traffic: Little traffic.
Start & finish: Buerkrysset
