Family fun by the Oslofjord

Family fun by the Oslofjord A 20-minute drive from Oslo, and you are in Follo. Home to Norway’s largest amusement park Tusenfryd and a range of other attractions, this is a region full of diversity.

At TusenFryd amusement park you can go for a ride with roller coasters like SpinSpider, Speed Monster and ThunderCoaster. TusenFryd features a variety of attractions, including rides such as the 4D ride Thors Hammer and the scary Nightmare, carousels, a log ride and much more. 

At Oscarsborg fortress, which lies as a jewel in the Oslofjord just outside the wooden town of Drøbak, you can learn about the region's culture and history in beautiful surroundings.

Nearly 140,000 inhabitants live in the Follo region which consists of the municipalities Frogn, Oppegård, Ski, Vestby, Ås, Nesodden and Enebakk.

Many of the towns and villages in Follo are situated beside the Oslofjord, for example Drøbak, Hvitsen and Son, and there are several beaches in the region which are very popular during the summer months, among residents and visitors alike.

Son, Drøbak and Hvitsten first became known as artists' colonies in the mid-nineteenth century. Well-known Norwegian painters and writers, such as Edvard Munch, were attracted to the Follo coast because of the beautiful scenery, the Oslofjord and the special light. Today the region is a good option if you are seeking cultural experiences, if you want to explore the Oslofjord or enjoy outdoor activities such as golfing and fishing.
