Oslomarka is perfect for a walk, jogg, skiing or biking...depending on the season you visit. There are marked routes all over for ski, walk or biking. Be aware of that this is a popular place in the weekends especially. You soon forget that this area is just outside of a Oslo citys Buzz.

Treat for nature lovers, we thoroughly enjoyed walk on one of the trails. Due to short time we had on hand, did not get chance to try authentic forest restaurants. Probably summer is best time to visit these forest trails and dirt road.

I went there on a sunny Sunday for a cycling tour and really enjoyed the area. There are many different tours one can take, many beautiful lakes where people go swimming and a wide choice of charming authentic forest restaurants. There are also many prepared tracks for cross-country skiing in the winter and it is rather popular both as a... More

It is hard for anyone outside Norway to believe that virtually every person in Oslo lives less than 15 minutes from a vast network of trails and dirt roads that are free, unencumbered, and well maintained. In winter, volunteers clear cross-country skiing trails, and in summer trees are marked to show official trails. Maps are available in most bookstores, and... More

If you are so lucky, visiting Oslo, you have to be aware that in 20 - 30 minutes, you have mother nature at your freets. If u do not know better, at least go to Holmenkollen and Frognersæteren. From there the world is at your feet.

The greatest thing about Oslo is its twin personality - both a great city with what you can expect from a captial, and the peace and quiet of its wonderful nature; you can always find a place of your own in the "endless" woods of Oslo.

Oslomarka is one of the reason why I choose to move to Norway. It is incredibly nice to live in a capital and still have easy access to wild nature!
