To be in the Nordmarka forrest (Oslo Norway) under 50 km mens cross country is a historic event that every men and woman who is interesting in this sport have to experience.

Big and Beautiful place for a hike, we went in January so all the locals were on their cross country ski's and sledges - we were the only ones just using our feet to get around. Absolutely stunning to see all the trees in the snow. Do take sensible gear - its cold and snowy!

Or for cross country skiing in the winter. If you like nature and want to go for a walk this is the place. And you can get there with public transportation. Well worth the trip.

A scenic ride to Frognersteren (spelling?) station on the metro takes you to an amazing place to begin a wonderful walk down to the Holmenkollen ski jump. The forest area walked through is a great representation of beautiful Norway. Although well signed, we still got a little lost but thoroughly enjoyed the adventure! A must do for day in Oslo!

Nordmarka is without a doubt what makes Oslo a wonderful city to live in or visit. Take the Frognerseter tram uphill and make a day or afternoon of it - in good weather it is hard to beat. You can walk, ski, picnic by a lake, cycle, go to the various cafes, restaurants or even the upmarket Holmenkollen Park Hotell.... More

Kilometer after kilometer of forest. Most of it relatively untouched. For walking, cykling, skiing. All free! You can reach it by city subway!

Like hiking or skiing (in winter)? Jump on the subway to Songsvann or Holmenkollen. Follow one of the routes. They can be a bit confusing since many of them points to same location but differ if you are on foot or on crosscountry skies. In winter you have to go by skies (or at least be ready to get ugly...
