Indre Østfold offers plenty of opportunities for outdoor recreation. Here, you will find unspoilt nature and tranquillity that is ready to be explored by foot, bike, canoe or even a pedal board. One of the major attractions is Halden Canal, which stretches over 80 kilometres and is Norway’s oldest canal, featuring three sets of locks: Ørje, Strømsfoss and Brekke – the last one being Europe’s tallest staircase lock at 27 metres. There are both scheduled and chartered boats along the canal, and you can find one of Norway’s biggest steamboat environments here. Visitors can also bring their own boats.
