It might look far, but a trip to Frognerseteren Station will lead you to this amazing quiet walk in the woods. But don't adventure yourself too far away, you might get lost. It's a beatiful place to get a panoramic view of the city.

15 minutes in a car or 25 minutes in Holmenkollen "Trikk" will take you to Mother Nature on her best. Here you can walk around for hours, and sometime you hardly see anyone. Peaceful and lovely areas wherever you go! Several places where you can buy food and drinks, or enjoy food that you bring along yourself. Far away from... More

It is amazing to visit a place where more people carry skis on the subway than backpacks! I love Oslo for this reason. People make the Saturday and Sunday pilgramage from central Oslo to ski the Nordmarka just by taking the tube to the end of the line. You get off at the last station on two of the lines... More

Surrounding Oslo, you will find hills up to about 500 meter above sea level. To the north, west and northeast is a broad belt of forest, lakes and pathes. During winter you might find more than 5.000 km of well prepared cross country ski slopes - inviting you to free visits. The lakes are beautiful - in between the different... More

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
