  • To do

New in summer 2023 - Pole hunting on Rødensjøen! Yes you heard right. In Marker, you can now take pole hunting to the water. This is for those of you who want to try pole hunting with a canoe or kayak. Tip for the starting point is at Kroksund (at pole 58) or Tjuvholmen (at pole 68). Canoes can be rented at Joval farm (at post 65). Rental must be agreed in advance. A couple of other tips: if you want accommodation in gapahuk, there is one on Sæterøya and one on the tip of Tjuvholmen that is free for the public to use. Toilet facilities are also available at these two locations. At the Krone stadium, you can stretch your legs and play soccer golf and volleyball. Balls are there for free loan. Remember a life jacket and be careful when you are close to the water. Good pole hunting and enjoy Rødensjøen's many opportunities.

The pole hunt is a low-threshold offer that takes place in several local communities in Indre Østfold. You must hunt for "posts" that are placed near the centre areas. You can walk, run or cycle to find the poles. Most of the bars are also wheelchair accessible. The posts can be registered both manually, digitally and by downloading an application on the mobile, so that you can scan the QR code that each post is equipped with.

The pole hunt aims to facilitate the activation of both young and old; inactive people, school students, cyclists, disabled people and wheelchair users - or those who simply want to get to know the city and district better. Pole hunting is a non-profit association that aims to contribute to increased physical activity among most people throughout the country.

The pole hunt is a free offer. Maps and info will be available in several places in the various municipalities, as well as on the website.

The bars have the following degrees of difficulty:

GREEN - very easy, accessible by bike and wheelchair

BLUE - Simple

RED – medium

BLACK - difficult
