Bike Tour: The Strawberry Route from Ås to Drøbak

Take the family on a safe bike ride through rolling cultural landscapes from Ås to Drøbak, well-seasoned with experiences along the way.

Start the tour at Ås station, passing through the courtyard at Ås Town Hall where you can experience the sculptor Odd Tandberg's work "Life's Force" and the town hall in a light functionalist style, designed by the architect Bjart Mohr, before arriving at the University and Vitenparken.

NMBU has one of Norway's most exciting park facilities where most plants and vegetation are labeled.

The tour continues past Brønnerud School and Korsegården, where there used to be an inn and coach station that you can now experience at the Follo Museum. Along the cycle path towards "Jordbærbua," there are several easily visible and signposted burial mounds from the Iron Age.

One of these is located at Søndre Holstad, where legend says that Herløg Rishaug was swallowed, and she can be heard singing for her beloved every St. Hans and Christmas. If it is the season and Jordbærbua is open, we recommend a stop for what must be called the area's sweetest berries.

Continue the tour through Drøbak Golf Club, down to the open-air museum at Follo Museum, where you can experience the old coach station from Korsegården, solve a museum mystery, or let the children play in the scenic playground before rolling down to Drøbak center and the square.

In Drøbak center, there are several cafes and experiences for all ages. Or how about a refreshing swim in Badeparken after the bike ride?
