Sarpsborg is located approximately 45 miles (72 kilometers) from Oslo, the capital of Norway.
When it comes to getting the best bang for your buck from your holidays, it's worth remembering that Sarpsborg is just just the start; Oslo - Southern Norway features an abundance of natural sights, cities and towns. To explore the area in even greater depth, head 14 miles (23 kilometers) to get to Halden. Here you can pay a visit to the Fredriksten Fortress and Halden Golf Club.
About 45 miles (72 kilometers) to the northwest of Sarpsborg is Drammen, an important regional city and the home of Drammens Theatre, Drammensbadet and Drammens Museum. Union Scene and Marienlyst Stadium are more attractions that should be included on everyone's itinerary.
A good way to really understand a spot is by discovering its past. Take a trip to the old towns while you are in the area. Enjoy moments of serenity in Oslo - Southern Norway's churches.
The Sarpsborg region is a good place to visit to get outside and make the most of winter. When the mercury drops, follow the locals and try cross-country skiing or snowboarding.

As you finish your stay, pack your suitcase and bid Norway "Ha det bra" (farewell).
