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.

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.

Beautiful trails and great views if one goes further up. A great place to go for a morning or afternoon walk even as part of a busy workday.

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
