Great hiking opportunities all year round.
The light trail at Dømmesmoen
Dømmesmoen is located approximately 2 km north of the city center - an excellent hiking destination where you can explore the forest paths and floodlit trail by foot. During winter, when there's snow, the trail turns into ski tracks and are reserved skiers. At skisporet.no you can keep track of the trails and see when they were last prepared. The track is approximately 3,5 km long. Nearby you will also find a small lake called Rosholttjenna, where you can enjoy ice skating if the ice settles.
