Open Door to Outdoor Pursuits ”Open Door to Outdoor Pursuits” is a joint project involving LAs and regions/counties in Bohuslän, Östfold and Akershus. Our aim is to make our natural environment here in the border regions more accessible to visitors, regardless of age, mobility, or experience. Thus, the project emphasises increased accessibility for persons with various forms of reduced ability, or those who have lost the outdoor habit! This approach has benefits for everyone. The project uses a general standard in adapting outdoor areas, so as to increase accessibility. These areas have been listed and, on the Swedish side, are shown on the accessibility database. See - for more details. We hope you will find places you want to return to during different seasons of the year. Participants in Open Door to Outdoor Pursuits were Uddevalla, Stenungsund, Tjörn, Orust, Lysekil, Munkedal, Sotenäs, Tanum, Strömstad (Bohuslän LAs), and Hvaler, Sarpsborg, Fredrikstad, Rygge, Moss, Frogn, Oppegård (Akershus Region LAs). Also involved were - Oslo Fjord’s Outdoor Pursuits Assoc., The West Coast Federation, Västra Götaland RA, Fyrbodal LAs, and Östfold/Akershus County Authorities. Joint financing was provided via EU Interreg IV A SwedenNorway and Norwegian IR funds. The project was finalised in the autumn of 2013.
