Location:

The local area is rich in cultural monuments, nature and outdoor life. The place is located along Sætreleva which was a river used for transportation of timber to Kragerø. Åslandsdammen and other cultural monuments from the beginning of the 20th century are a short walk from the parking.

 

There are many nice walks in the area both on foot and by bike. Luberg, Rupåsen, Åsland farm and Nåsnibben are nice marked hikes with varying degrees of difficulty. It is also nice to bike along the Sætrelva which is part of a marked network of cycle paths in the area. Remember to bring swimwear. There are many nice swimming opportunities in the area!

 

For those of you who are interested in war history: The remains of a Mosquito wreck from World War II are located in Høidalen a few kilometers away. The plane was shot down in 1945 after the bombing of Hydro Porsgrunn.

 

For the children, the Adventure Trail is also a few kilometers away. This is a 500 meter long nature trail with exciting tasks and experiences along the way. The text is in English and Norwegian.  Bring the picnic basket and see if you can find traces of a moose.

 

There is trout in Sætreelva and the pond on the upper side of the river. Fishing license is included when you park.
