A campsite next to Båntjern offers various facilities including a place for grilling and a diving tower. The name is derived from tales of the ghosts of unbaptized children left in the woods to die alone.
A trail walk continues further west of Båntjern. It leads to the top of Vettakollen, an area with views over the Oslofjord and the Bunnefjord. Southwest of Båntjern is an old mine called Riis Skjerp.

  • Fantastic place, reccomended to take a walk and even have some snacks.
  • Nice and quiet place to have a rest. Close to Vettakollen station. In winter the lake freezes over and it is quite beautiful, especially if the small waterfall also freezes
