Bjørnåsen, Jeløya - Yellow orange glowing sunset


A wonderful hiking up to a top near Bjørnåsen hill at Jeløya. Admired the magic sunset above Nes and towards the Oslofjord. It's not just the view that fascinated me, but the unique landscape consisting a number of volcanic rocks and the dense old growing forest.

Jeløya is actually a peninsula in the Oslo Fjord. It`s a part of the Moss, which is a coastal city and a municipality in Østfold county, Norway. The Moss region has an abundance of trails and paths, especially on Jeløy. This beautiful island is located around 60 kilometers from Norway`s capital Oslo. Jeløy covers 19 km² and is the largest island in the Oslo fjord. It has about 12,000 inhabitants.

Jeløya is today also known for its good fishing opportunities, exciting biking trails, caves, nice beaches, a pulsating harbor with boats, open farms for visitors with cafèes, horseriding and arts, especially at Gallery F15 at Alby where you find one of Norway's most widely known art galleries. Jeløy is very popular for visitors both in the summer and winter. Many families and friends go there on picnic.

Jeløy belongs geologically to the Oslo area, and is made up of a young lava rock-type from the Permian period. On Jeløy there are three tall peaks. Bjørnåsen, Bjornasen (the Bear Hill in English) reaches 138 metres high and is the tallest (or it`s Rambergåsen?). It`s situated straight up and east of Nes Camping on the northern part of the island. From the tower on top of the hill it`s a breathtaking view in all directions. It`s possible to park at the farm at upper Skallerød Renneflotveien.

From the summit we enjoyed the beautiful view of the Oslo Fjord and the beautiful coastline. Down under us we could also observe Nes camping and the cultivated area Vestre Nes.
