Visit Inner Østfold - Easter holiday in Inner Østfold

Family easter in Inner Østfold

It is not only on the mountain that you can enjoy activities and family fun during the Easter holidays. We have gathered tips for what you can do in Inner Østfold during Easter.


Visit the animals at The Funny Farm

The Funny Farm in Hobøl is open on Saturdays and Sundays during Easter. The farm is called The Funny Farm because you are going to have fun when you visit the farm. The farm has many beautiful animals you can greet, including sweet and domestic miniature pigs, chickens, rabbits, peking ducks, cats, a horse, beautiful peacocks, sweet goats, two very social dogs and two stately horses you can enjoy. The couple who own Karlstad farm are themselves inspired by the 50s and 60s with a real American diner, The Funny Café, where you can get yourself a real snack. The farm organizes fun activities for both young and old. Here you can help feed the animals, get scratched in the butt of the mini horse and learn how a farm is run.

Water park, trampoline park and bowling
Whatever the weather, you can always head to Østfoldbadet in Askim. Here are delicious temperatures all year round - and always a popular activity for young and old. Here you can try the waterslides, the climbing wall, take a hot tub on the roof or try the waves that are set on a regular basis. For those who want to jump and bounce a bit, we recommend Sprett Aktivitetspark in Askim. Jump to new heights in the trampoline park or check out the bowling alley that offers eight courses for kids. Stay at Scandic Brennemoen, only 10 minutes away. Or stay the Smaalenene hotel, the historic hotel in the middle of Askim town. Both the Scandic Brennemoen and Smaalenene hotels have Easter holiday offers.

Enjoy spring and Easter holiday at Rømskog Spa & Resort

Rømskog Spa and Resort has Easter holiday offers. They arrange Easter activities for young and old. Thursday morning, they fire up in the lavvo and serve hot drinks and something to bite in. On Easter evening, the Easter bunny comes to visit. There are several nice hiking trails in the area, as well as lending of canoes and mountain bikes. Take the family with you for and enjoy a nice and relaxing easter holiday.




The Norwegian resistance museum in Rakkestad is open on Sundays. The home front museum has over a hundred meters of glass mounted that contain around 4000 items from World War II. The exhibits are extensive and affect occupation, war actions, environment, agents, national assembly, civilian side, concentration camps and peace.


Folkenborg Museum repeats last year's success and invites you to Easter Crime at the museum. Join the sheriff's wife on new missions and unleash the mysterious crimes around the museum! The museum is open from noon. 11:00 to 14:00 Monday to Wednesday during Easter week. There will also be Easter workshop where you can make your own Easter decor and take home. Easter fun starts at. 12:00. Open shop and cafe with simple dining.



Horse racing at Momarken

Momarken Race Track welcomes you Thursday and Sunday in the Easter week. Horse racing at Momarken are a tradition, and as usual, the organizers strive for races and activities such as engaging more than just the trotting people. Take a walk on the track and experience the excitement up close.



Out in nature

The forest is always open. How about taking the whole family for a walk in the beautiful nature? Bring a frying pan and pancake on a bottle - and take a pleasant forest tour. Sausages and bread rolls or waffles are also always a success!


The holidays in Easter can also be a great opportunity to experience one of the many viewing towers we have in the region. The most famous is probably Linnekleppen which many thousands of people visit every year. We can also recommend accommodation at DNT's accommodation hut at Haukenestårnet in Rømskog or Ertevannhytta in Eidsberg.


We also have many cabins in the region. Not everyone is open in Easter but bring your packed lunch and have it as a destination. Another tip is to bring a fishing rod to one of the many waters we have in the region and see if the fish bites? Why not combine it with an overnight trip in one of the many gorges and camp sites along the Halden Canal?


Easter Sunday, there will be the opportunity to join DNT Indre Østfold on Easter walk - a journey from Aremark to Degernes. The trip is estimated to take about 8 hours, and is best suited for adults.



Easter fun at Trøgstad Fort

The Easter Eve you will find the Easter bunny in the A-battery at Trøgstad Fort. There will be sales of waffle and coffee in the area, as well as grilling sausages.



A cozy bargain and a great meal

Inner Østfold has several small pearls of some shops. Make a cozy bargain in one of the many nice shops in our regions. Havnås Old School in Trøgstad, Møllerens house in Aremark and Askim Frukt and Bærpresseri are well worth a visit. In addition to the great shopping experience, you can also sit down and have a coffee and enjoy yourself. Inner Østfold also offers many other nice places to enjoy a good meal. Do something nice in your holiday and take a trip out. See our overview of cafes and restaurants for tips on where to eat.
