Outdoor recreation

Everyone in Norway shall have access to nature. The country is richly endowed with hiking trails and the like, and the right to roam allows us to move freely across large areas. 

The Norwegian Environment Agency's task is to ensure that the right to roam is respected in actual practice and to promote the recreational use and enjoyment of nature. We focus in particular on nature in densely populated districts, because such areas are easy to use in everyday life.
