PICTURES from DRAMMEN

Drammen, the capital of Buskerud. The city grew up around the Drammen River estuary, and the river formed the basis of its proud history as a seaport. Drammen have adopting the areas around the river to create recreational, cultural and residential areas and walking trails along the riverside to enjoy. Restaurants, cafes, nightclubs and shopping complexes, and other places have opened.

Kjøsterudjuvet gorge, Kjoesterudjuvet ravine A wilderness walk in Kjøsterudjuvet gorge - our local version of Grand Canyon. The gorge is 1300 metres long, with a 250 metre climb. The perpendicular walls have a height of up to 60 metres, and at its narrowest, the gorge is no more than 4 metres wide.

Within the borders of Drammen we have two alpine slopes, including snowboard. Drammen Skicenter, (Aronsløypa), there is a ten minute walk to the gorge itself and on the Strømsø side we have Drammen Slalåmclub (Haukåsløypa).
