If your trip to Ovre Eiker is all booked but your travel itinerary is a bit on the empty side, we can give you a few hints and tips.
Plan a stop at Varlo Park. It's one sight you'll usually find on most visitors' must-do lists. Haug Church and Vestfossen Kunstlaboratorium are also not far away and worth taking the time to see.
With some great road trip options in the surrounding area, renting a car makes sense. Without one, it'd be much more difficult to experience all that Modum, 16 miles away, has to offer. Vikersundbakken Ski Flying Hill, Furumo Svommehall and Blaafarvevaerket Art Exhibition alone make the drive out worthwhile. The locals are also likely to point you toward Hurum, 25 miles away. If you only see one thing here, make sure it's Hurum Golfklubb. (But we'd also highly recommend Askestad Art Gallery and Nebba.)
