Just a stone's throw away from Oslo city this area is great for a run or trekking or biking in the summer, not to mention skiing in wintertime. You can get there by public transport, check out ruter.no or even walk if you do not go by car.

always good to leave the city behind for a couple of hours and just walk in the forests around Oslo... This is something typical for Norwegians.

It's a huge region. Reviewing it is very difficult. But it's beautiful and worth exploration. You get into the mountains decently quickly and there are all sorts of lakes and forests begging exploring. Having a car would probably make it the most enjoyable.

Take the metro to beautyful Sognsvann and have a walk around the lake and/or a barbecue, or go to Frognerseteren for a brisk hike in Nordmaraka. After you could enjoy the views and services of Frognerseteren itself.

Took the metro line 1 all the way to the end (which itself was a picturesque ride), and then just ended up following random trails. Very beautiful. Very quiet. Clean. Not many people there. We spent the whole day here, and after a few days in cities, this felt refreshing. We ran into a ski hill and hiked up that... More

This a a hidden secret that most tourists never discover. Around Oslo there are huge forrests that can be used all year around. Hiking, fisching, cyckling or running in the summertime, and crosscountry sking in the wintertime. If you want you can fine a peaceful place for camping.

Fab, as other reviewers have mentioned that the tram out on line 1 and get off right at the end. Nice walk down to the lake and out the other side to the tram. About 6 miles in total I think. You can also walk to the sk jump, this is not such a picturesque walk but it is a... More

Both Nordmarka and Oslomarka refer to the area north of Oslo prime for walking, cycling and cross-country skiing. We went up in May 2015 to do some walking and it was just fantastic. Easy to get to and the to find your way around. There are a large number of walks, clearly marked that take you all over the area.... More

If you have more than just a day in Oslo you should definately go for more than the standard tourist venues. Why not combine a trip to Holmenkollen ski jump with a trip into the forest either by a rental bicycle (bysykkel) or by foot? If the weather is nice this is a beautiful feature of Oslo - the surrounding... More

Take the subway 1 all the way to the final stop and be amazed! The Oslomarka holds a vast area of beautiful and almost undisturbed forest. You can go skiing or hiking in a very large area. We took a hiking path of 5 km and even slightly underestimated the distance. The trail took us deep in the forest with... More
