Krakeroy - Here you will find the best cycle tracks in the municipality. Start in Smertulia the open park area about 500 m south of Krakeroy Bridge. take Solliveien past Krakeroy School and the Athletics Stadium. Turn left along cycle lane to Krakeroy Church and ride south to Lunde. The three old buildings here were once schools the eldest date from 1858. (Side road at Lunde to odegardsstua - a typical Krakeroy house from 1800`s). Continue southwards along the cycle lane, cross the main road at the signpost to Tangen, (open air swimming) Return the same way, but at Enhus take the main road back past Rod School and Ekheim, an impressive property from the timber baron`s era once owned by the Kjaers family. (Today, privat property). From Ekheim take the gravel road towards Rodsmyra bac to Solliveien.

Just across three bridges from Fredrikstad you have the river, Oslofjord, woodlands, ancient farms and old Viking settlements. The biggest attraction for me: Villa Ekheim, Norway's largest private wooden building. Built in the classical Norwegian Dragon Style. Beautifully restored. Go see.
