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

Make sure to go for a cross-country trip while in Oslo. You can rent skis or bring your own. Take the tram to Frognerseteren station on Line 1. You can also rent downhill equipment at the Oslo Vinterpark close by - check it out. Just 30 min form downtown and you are out in the wilderness.

Accessible within less than 30 minutes from the city center, Oslomarka offers so much in every season. Skiing, skating, walking, biking, hiking, fishing, climbing, or just a jog, or a cup of coffee in one of the cabins.

Oslo is lucky innits geograhical position between forest ang fjord. This gives visitors the double benefit of a forest walk in the morning and a boat trip on the fjord in the afternoon or at certain times of year a ski trip in the forest in the morning and a boat trip in the afternoon. Oslo must also be the... More

The very best thing about Oslo is that you can basically just enter the wilderness in some minutes. There are so many possibilites to escape from the city life in just a short time... Nordmarka, Frogneseteren, Ullevålseter, Sørkedalen, Sognsvann, Maridalen, Bogstad... and I could continue... Highly worth visiting for exploring and photograph the norwegian nature/wilderness, wild animals and the lovely... More

The forests that surrounds Oslo is beautiful and very varied from the hilly and more open north to the more closed and with less people to the east. All of the forests in Oslo is easy to access with most communications. It's also a pretty good ski area in the north, still within city borders. It is said that Oslo... More

Oslo marka is a very nice area for singles, couples and families. It gives plenty of opportunities. But you would have to love walking or bicycling. But if you do - wow! There are fishing opportunities (trout), picnic areas with open fire places, bathing (preferably during the summer months if you do not want to make a hole in the... More

You never walk alone, but it is relaxing although there are a lot of People around. Nice to relax at Ullevålsseter and walk to Frognerseteren-plan for a lunch.
