Eastern Norway Viken FROGN

Hike around Øvredammen lake

  • Øvredammen, Frogn
  •  /  km From You

The hike around Øvredammen lake is a local favourite.

Øvredammen is a local favorite for those who live in Drøbak and Frogn, this is a great lake where you can both swim and fish and spend the night at.

There are several entrances, but a popular starting point is at the Follo museum. Then you go up to Seiersten redoubt built 1898–1900 and further into the forest where there is a sign for Øvredammen. You can follow the path around the pond or walk a longer round "Seierstenmarka round".

The trip called "Seierstenmarka round" is 5.5 kilometers and defined as an easy hike.

Large parts of the path are also adapted for wheelchair users. This tour goes past the dammed ponds Kvernerdammen and Øvredammen. These were formerly Drøbak's water sources. Now the Kverner dam serves as an irrigation system for the golf course and a water reservoir for the DFI ski group's snow production. Øvredammen offers trout fishing in both summer and winter, as well as skating activities in winter. If you are going fishing, you can buy a fishing license at Sporten, Drøbak City. You continue between Gylteåsen cottage field and Øvredammen. Before you get to Høiås and Heer, you see the Speiderhytta on Harafjellet. The mountain is Seierstenmarka's highest point with its 151 m. You continue east until you hit the light trail at Brakadalen. Follow the light trail southwards. After three hundred meters you are in the artificial snow route of the DFI ski group. The entire pipe system is buried, so that it does not interfere visually.

To end the tour, continue south until you see the Follo museum again.

Seierstenmarka is full of hikers, trimmers and cyclists.

The forest is Frogn's most important local hiking area.
