The area north of the city is even with public transport easy to reach (subwayline 1 towards Frognerseteren) From this endstation you can explore the vast forest and lake area. Nice to relax and some point give you great views of the backcountry and even the city. Walking downhill back to the city you can go to Holmenkollen Skyjumping tower... More

Excellent idea and good service. The Norwegian Skiing club runs organized transport by bus to the north-west - Ringkollen - part of woodlands just outside Oslo. The bus and bike trailer will take you to a fairly remote area at 600 above sea level and you can enjoy the ride back on your own and at your own pace through... More

Pure nature and probably the best view of Oslo. Though this place is far from Oslo Central, it is worth a visit for nature lovers. Air is crisp and fresh and it is couple of degrees cooler then Oslo. Nice place to go for hike or cycling thru the trails in forest.

Visited this place in June 2011 and i cannot forget it till now. I live in Singapore where everything is man made, hot and humid. The plants, animals and nature stuff we see here is totally different from Oslo. it was really an eye opening experience for me while hiking here. Firstly, the air is so so fresh, the hike... More

This is the real heart and soul of Oslo. I have lived here for over 25 years and I am still drawn to Nordmarka. In the winter there is skiing and in the summer there is biking, walking and swimming. The other attraction is the beautiful lodges spread out through the forest. You can stop by and get a cup... More

The love for outdoor activities is truly manifested in all the city`s inhabitants beeing able to reach the great outdoors in 20 min from center of town. Hiking, fishing and taking care of this National park so close to the capitol.

We loved Nordmarka, it is close to city centre just 20 minutes by metro, T-banen, end of line 1, ticket for 30 NOK each way. The forest there is wonderful many paths through the snow with beautiful almost white trees, snow covered, you just can walk around without getting bored. There is a restaurant near the metro station. One can... More

The scenery is quite boring, just miles and miles of evergreen trees. Nothing impressing to see anywhere. Quite boring for walking. Ok for cross country skiing, or for working out biking og running.

I dont know many capital cities around the world that have such a place within its border. You may take the subway into it! In winter you may rent skies to go downhill or "the Norwegian style" just use ready made tracks into the forest. Signs show you the way (letters are red for winter, and blue for summer). Visit...
