We did a tour of Drobak with a local family. The downtown area is very sweet and quaint with lots of good cafes and restaurants, art galleries, and an open air market. You can easily get to Drobak by ferry or bus.

On a sunny day this nice village is well worth the time to get there. Nice walks in narrow streets with old rustic brightly colored houses, great restaurants, galleries, and even a very nice beach.

It was a 1 hour bus ride to this little town, but not especially picturesque... There were as many hair salons as there are restaurants. The Christmas store was nice and I found some unique ornaments to bring back as gifts. Overall not a terrible...More

In the winter, it's like walking in a Dickens novel with a clear high point at Christmas season. It's also amazing in the summer time.
