"Nesøya - residential paradise and nice hiking" Asker Things to Do Tip by Saagar

Asker Things to Do: 25 reviews and 16 photos

Go hiking at Nesøya, see the rich and the famous and listen to birdsong and watch plants and trees and butterflies rare elsewhere in Norway.
Despite the dark windows, closed gates and surveillance cameras surrounding the large villas, Nesøya has a natural environment that makes it well worth to visit. You can take a dip in the sea, too. And proceed to Brønnøya, a residental island with no car traffic.
In the middle of the Nesøya island is a small lake -Nesøytjernet - which is part of a strict nature reserve. You may walk on designated trails, but not swim, fish, cut vegetation etc.
You can get a map at Asker municipality's Service center, or at the Kiwi store on Nesøya. Very easy. And the shoppers in front of you in the check-out lane may be the boys from A-ha.

Directions: Take a designated bus from either Oslo or Asker to Nesøya.
