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...

We took the #1 metro line to Frognerseteren which was the end of the line. From there we embarked on a short but beautiful height. The signs were easy enough to follow, but I would plan on bringing a map of cell phone if you're going close to darkness.

Gorgeous outdoor nature area with easy access from the city centre - go to the Holmenkollen ski jump and the Frognerseteren restaurant (sit outside during the summer to get views of the city) while you're there!

Green, fresh air, more Oxygine, less or simply no traffic sign, a pathway, great place for joggers, walkers, wanders, picnic or simply a weekend break.

Stunning view - in close proximity of the city! You can literally start your trip as soon as you step out of the public transport, and most people suggest to take tram no. 1 and start from that end. Fortunately or unfortunately for us, we took a bus (we intended to go to Opera but went the wrong direction) and... More

Visited here once by public transit, to enjoy the views and of course the amazing apple cake! We had Oslo passes which covered our transit fares. A lovely August day, sunshine! The second time we drove up and had lunch. Lovely old 1890s building has been a cafe/restaurant since that time. Great spot for hiking, or just enjoying the view... More
