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.
