Low traffic road
Signed with red signs Route 9 Villmarksruta, but there are signs missing and somewhere misleading, so make sure to download the map upfront in your smartphone.

Today you cycle on quiet country roads with very little traffic in the beginning and a little more as you get closer to Ørje. This charming small town offers the best bakery and is perfect for a rest. The Canal Museum is also worth a visit, you can take a swim in the lake and get groceries in the store. In Ørje you also find a sport shop.

The route now follows the Halden Canal on low-traffic roads – the canal is very popular for tourist boats and kayaking. At Strømsfoss you can visit the café Møllerens Hus by the river lock.

The goal of today is Kirkeng Camping located just next to the river, where you can rent a cabin or put up your tent.

Public transport: Bus transport to/from Ørje. Check for information.
