An extra day in Oslo, don't miss the opportunity to take a tour into the enourmous recreation area called Nordmarka. Excellent area for most type outdoor sports and recreation and YOU will find all information you need on the net.

We're extremely lucky here in Oslo to live in a main city surrounded by so much wild nature.. and Nordmarka is easily accessible by public transport. And there is so many possibilites here! Nordmarka is an excellent place for hiking, jogging, cycling, swimming and skiing of course during winter. There are lots of different trails and a lot of different... More

Great area where you can walk (or ski, or cycle) around for days if you want to. Well sign posted with blue and/or red marks on the trees. Endless possibilities from short, light walks, to more then one day hikes. Bring something to eat and drink (or go to one of the cabins that offer food).

We took the train from downtown Oslo so I could go for a trail run in Nordmarka. The place was bustling on a Sunday afternoon, as it is clearly a popular outdoor destination for residents of Oslo. Not on a par with Central Park in NYC or Stanley Park in Vancouver, but still a nice escape from the city.

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.

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
