The tour starts at Vettre (bus stop) - make your way down to Kråka Pub and the coast. Continue to the right towards Blakstad and below the main building follow the blue-marked coastal path along the water and stay on it until you make it to Asker Seilforening, feel free to take a detour around Børsholmen.
Then follow Blakstad Bryggerivei up to Slemmestadveien and turn left, follow it to Sjøvollbukta and enter the residentail area, follow the path along the bay at the bottom of the houses until it comes up again on the other side of the bay. Feel free to take the detour down the penninsula behind where there are nice outdoor areas, a bench for relaxation and great views of Nesodden and Oslo.
Continue along the main road to the center of Vollen.

Close by is Tjuvholmen, which was Asker's trial.

Also look for the geological signs that tell a little about the nature and geology of the area that is a distinctive part of the Oslo belt.
Be aware of some construction work past Veas - follow signs and be careful.
