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

If your ever in Oslo, take the tram to "frognerseteren" and go for a walk in the beautiful "Oslomarka". You can go to Songsvann and should stop by "Sjenungstua" on your way. Wear good shoes and enjoy your walk.

Oslo is one of the few European capitals surrounded by (one should say in the middle of) the woods. A 30-minute ride by metro will take you there. Pak your food and enjoy!

Oslomarka is unique. It is available for everybody in and around the city, and there is something here for everyone. Wether you prefer a quick walk on a gravel road in good company, or if you'd like to spend the night where no one else is around, the woods around Oslo have it all.
