The borderlands between Oslo and Sweden offer untouched nature, Norway’s oldest canal Haldenkanalen, and many good fishing spots.
The Inner Østfold region has played a central role in the country’s history and has impressive defence works from various periods. One of these is the Høytorp Fortress in Mysen, Norway’s biggest inland fortress.
In the region you will also find Haldenkanalen (the Halden Canal), the oldest canal in Norway, with Northern Europe’s highest system of locks. From the canal you can experience beautiful scenery with opportunities for quiet relaxation. The canal is excellent for canoeing, and you may also try the passenger steamboat “Turisten”.
There are about 56,000 people living in Inner Østfold, and Askim and Mysen are the largest towns. There are several options for getting to the region and around.
Inner Østfold offers a wide range of recreational activities, including a fabulous indoor swimming complex, two golf courses, and horse racing opportunities.
The region has been a centre for motor sports in Norway for many years. Rally drivers Petter and Henning Solberg are Inner Østfold natives, and the area has some of the best motor sports facilities in the country. At the famous Rudskogen Motorpark you can watch motorcycle and car races, or go for a spin on the tarmac yourself.
If you are traveling with a group and are looking for gastronomic sensations, you may want to try a meal based on locally grown produce in the rustic setting of a farm like Bamsrudlåven in Mysen.
