Just a metrotrip away. Forrests, rivers, lakes, hiking paths. All very well marked. Its advised to bring a map and not solely rely upon your gps cellphone. Its great fun and its just 15 minutes away

I like to run around in the forest. Sometimes its also nice to ride my bike there. Both activities are great in the summer and autumn. In the winter you will find one of the best arenas in the world for cross country skiing.

When in Oslo, take your time to a stroll or rent a bike for a visit to the nature. There are many huts you can by a cup of coffee (many closed Mondays). Summertime: Find your own place to have a bath, wintertime rent ski or rent a sledge at Frognerseteren and take a trip downhill. I live in Oslo... More

There are no capitals in Europe except of Oslo that can offer both beaches and mountains as part of the city. Oslomarka is amazing! You have different paths or roads you can hike and get to different cabins where there are good refreshments waiting (waffles, cinnamon rolls, cacao, coffee, tea,..)

A uniqe surrounding for a capital city. Within a short periode of time you will reach the outskirt of Oslo and experience the peace and quiet and beauty of the surrounding woods and lakes. Ideal for walking, biking and hiking. In summer you can go for a swim in one of the lakes.

Great walks in beautiful nature at all times of the year. Berry and mushroom picking in the late summer and fall, swimming in the serene lakes in the summer, biking, hiking and just a short way from the city. Lovely views, variety in geography, a place you can get away from hectic life and feel tranquil and all by yourself... More

You cannot come to the city of Oslo without dipping you toe in the wonderful wildlife and nature. It literally borders the edge of Oslo and a short walk or tram wild will bring you into an area of outstanding natural beauty. It is possible to see a variety of wild birds and animals such specialties such as three toed... More

The best way to start your trip in Oslomarka, at least if you don't have a car, is by taking the subway to one of the stations located more or less in the forest, such as Sognsvann og Frognerseteren stations. I like all parts of Oslomarka, but the part i like the best is Nordmarka and Lillomarka, which is located... More

First let me start with: Be careful, look at the rules and suggestions left by tourist offices and so on. People do not see how wast spaces we are talking about. Remember that Oslo is the biggest capital in the world, because of the areal of the forest around (which Yes, it is still Oslo) Take a map with you,... More

We went to Oslomarka on a sunny day taking the Metro #1 from the centre. We had some trouble finding out how many zones to pay for and after advice from a local we paid for 1 zone (we are still not sure if this is right but there was no control, a 1 zone ticket is 30NOK (adult)). We... More
