Welcome to Asker and Bærum
– Norway’s most attractive coastal municipalities
Asker and Bærum are situated on the
west side of Oslofjorden and have a
multitude of lovely islands. The
maritime environment is an El Dorado
for boating and all kinds of water
This small area is like a miniature
Norway with lush valleys, forests,
farms and two rock massifs –
Skaugumåsen and Kolsåstoppen. The
latter is a popular challenge for rock
climbers, and on a whole Asker and
Bærum can offer a huge variety of
nature experiences to all its
inhabitants and visitors.
Cultural events and more urban
activities are located mainly in
centres like Asker, Sandvika and
Norway’s busiest highway – E18 – lies
along the coast and goes westwards
through Bærum. From Sandvika you can
travel to the west coast (towards
Bergen) on highway E16.
Asker and Bærum have approximately
150,000 inhabitants as of today.
We have the pleasure of welcoming you
to an active and memorable stay in
Asker and Bærum. Hopefully the AB guide
(Abguiden) can help you find what you
are looking for.
