Northeast of town is a lovely parked named Baneheia. You’ll need to climb one of two steep trails but the trek is worth it once you discover the tree-lined lakes called 1st, 2nd and 3rd Stampe. They were formed by old stone dams in order to supply the town with water. Now they offer the locals an all-season recreational area that includes about 1.3 miles of hiking paths. They are also popular swimming holes during the summer. Tourists especially enjoy the wonderful views of the city below. Another nearby park to explore is Ravnedalen or Raven’s Valley.
