ENGLISH: How to find nearby hikes and walks on Ut.no

Do you need suggestions for nearby hikes and walks in your local area? Try ut.no, with lots of options for walks near you.

It’s perhaps more important than ever to get outside for a bit in these unimaginable times. Fresh air and activity helps, both physically and mentally. However, we want to avoid packed parking lots and crowding on the familiar trails. That’s why we’re now encouraging you to check out new trails and paths near where you live.

“I nærheten av meg” (“nearby me”) at ut.no

If you go to ut.no from a computer, you will see a search box. If you click it, the suggestion “i nærheten av meg” appears. This feature shows you great suggestions for hikes and walks with maps and directions. You can use it in your neighbourhood - and when you find yourself in a new spot and have a few hours at your disposal.

If you use the app UT on your phone you’ll see an icon in the middle at the bottom of your screen, where it says “i nærheten” ("nearby"). Press the icon, and you’ll see suggestions for trails and paths near your current location.

We hope you’ll try this feature and take the opportunity to explore walks and hikes in your neighbourhood. Happy nearby hiking!
