Risskov has a large selection of weekend breaks and cheap holidays to Norway. A sought-after destination is Asker and Bærum, located west of Oslo and characterized by rural surroundings with beautiful farms located right on the Oslofjord. Here you have the perfect opportunity to take a walk around the farm or enjoy a stroll in the fields. You can also go for a swim if the kids are along for the ride and would like to pay a visit to Vollen beach, which would be ideal on a warm sunny day. This is also where the locals seek refuge when the weather gets too hot. That's why there are a number of good bathing spots and a boat service to Oslo in the summer months. The harbour has moorings and a guest harbour with several shops and a fjord tavern.
In Vollen you can rent electric bikes, ask where the best cycling routes are, they know all about it at the rental office. That way you can mix a bit of active holiday into your car holiday.
Should the city become too much, a trip to Bærums verk, where there are about 50 shops that have not changed much since the 1600s, and it is of course also possible to get something to eat in Bærums verk. Also visit Henie-Onstad Kunstsenter, which is an experience for anyone who is just a little interested in art. The art centre opened in 1967 and was inaugurated by the figure skater Sonja Henie, who promised that The Beatles would come and play, which never happened. Since then, many famous artists have exhibited their work at the art centre, including Yayoi Kusama, who exhibited in 2016. At Henie-Onstad Art Centre you can also enjoy some lunch or dinner at the restaurant Bølgen & Moi Høvikodden, which offers international cuisine.
