Visnes Outdoor Recreational Amenity is an unusual blend of coastal landscape, forests more typical of Eastern Norway, and a copper mine with an exciting history. The area is centred on the old mining industry and is full of interesting things to do. This is a family-friendly environment suitable for children and accessible for wheelchair users.

When visiting Visnes, you should not miss the opportunity to go back in time and catch a glimpse of an exciting chapter in Norway's industrial history. In its heyday in the 1800s, Vignes Copper Mine was one of the largest copper mines in Europe.
