Description of the area Tussetjern is an idyllic lake that lies between Ski and Oppegård. Tussetjern has a public bathing area. This area has a long history - at the end of the 1800s, it was a popular bathing area for guests visiting Fjeld Sanatorium, which is connected to the lake. Tussetjern is of botanic interest because of the remnants of its large garden. There are also paths around the whole lake with easy access the rest of Sørmarka. It’s possible to buy a fishing permit for perch, pike, roach, eel and bream. For more information see www.oppegard.kommune.no

Tussestien (Tusse path - see map) is for walkers and cyclists wishing to swim, or those who just want a bit of quiet in this little oasis in Sørmarka. The lake is just east of highway 156. The nearest bus stop, Stenfeltlia, is about 250 m away.
