Cross-Country Skiing

When the cold set in and the snow falls, many kilometers of cross-country trails run up in the Inner Østfold's forests. There are also a lot of Illuminated trails (often close to schools and housing estates) that invite for evening walks in a very special atmosphere.

Fjella, the large area between Marker, Eidsberg, Rakkestad and Aremark is the largest continuous nature area in Østfold. A network of cross-country ski trails invites you to long ski trips. There are also several cabins in Fjella. Some of the cabins are open for serving to the public part of the year, primarily during the winter months. Touring maps are available for purchase in sports shops and bookshops and an overview of track runs is available at:

Kjølen Sportcenter is located on the national border to Sweden and has a trail race of 2.5 km with lighting and artificial snow. There are also cross-country trails in the field. The center is an exercise facility that can be used all year round. Together with the artificial snow trails at Høytorp Fort in Mysen it makes a living ski environment possible for large and small enthusiasts throughout Inner Østfold.
