Why Visit Skodje, Norway

If you're looking for an off-the-beaten-track place for your next getaway, Skodje might be the oasis you need in this concrete world. The small municipality in Norway is one with flourishing nature, picturesque fjord landscape, numerous outdoor activities and oh, have we mentioned the beauty of nature? Large forested areas crossed by pathways, farms and pastures surfacing in the scenery, the imposing presence of mountains, it all adds up to one spectacular getaway, without a doubt.

The surroundings of the area provide with some fun leisurely activities, making Skodje sightseeing a truly memorable experience. One of them is enjoying a moment of peace while fishing for trout and salmon at the Solnorelva River or Engesetdalsvatnet Lake. Fishing possibilities in the area will impress the beginners as much as professionals and will undoubtedly become a place you'll want to come back to.

Another great idea is to go hiking along one of the numerous trails to witness some of the most picturesque sceneries of the Skodje tour and Norway in general. An astonishing panorama opens up from the peaks of Nihusen and Haugtua overlooking the fjords, so it goes without saying that the postcard-like views are truly worth the effort of hiking.

Even though the main feature attracting the majority of people to the region is the environment, the city's landmark is actually man-made. Arching over the Skodjestrommen and Eggestrommen currents, the Skodje Bridge consists of two authentic cobblestone bridges that were constructed back in 1916-1919. It is actually believed that upon opening it was the biggest stone bridge in Northern Europe!

However, a new bridge was opened in the area in 2004, as the old one was no longer suitable to sustain the amount of traffic. All in all, Skodje is your great escape to nature, providing with everything that's needed to relax and enjoy the beauty of exploring.
