Tour of Norway Østfold

Welcome to Østfold and Tour of Norway! Tour of Norway is Norway's biggest cycling race, with several of the world's best cycling teams and stars. The fifth and final leg of the Tour goes from Drøbak to Sarpsborg in Østfold on the 22nd of May 2016.

Østfold is a county with a diverse natural beauty — rivers, quiet lakes and forests in the interior behind a beautiful coastline. Here you can fish, bathe, sail, paddle and sunbathe on polished granite rocks. Situated by the Oslo Fjord, everything this county has to offer is located within a one-hour drive, and is also wonderful to experience by bicycle.

 

In Østfold you can visit charming towns and villages filled with exciting history. Two of the biggest tourist attractions are Fredriksten Fortress and The Old Town in Fredrikstad, which is considered to be the best preserved fortress town in Scandinavia.

 

If you feel the need to wind down and enjoy fresh air and nature, we recommend a trip out in our beautiful countryside nature — with or without a bicycle!

 

Welcome to Østfold and we hope to see you again!
