We planned to cross country ski on the trails in the Oslomarka, but there wasn't any snow. We had 2 fabulous hikes instead. You can easily access the metro from anywhere in the Oslo metro area, and join the throngs of city folk in this serene oasis.

Take a hike around the lake at the end of line 6 Sognsvann or bring a tent and stay for as long as you like. There are no dangerous animals in Oslomarka. There are also some cabins where you get lunch during the weekends. At the end of line 1 Frognerseteren you also get a nice view of Oslo. From... More

If you seek tranquillity and a break from the the noisy city, take a metro or a bus to the outskirts of Oslo. In half an hour you are at the border of Oslomarka/Nordmarka and you can walk into the forest. And have no fear, the paths are marked, so you will not get lost. If you hire a bike,... More

It is hard to imagine that you can use a single zone metro ride and find yourself in wonderful countryside. Getting off at Frogneretra station there are beautiful views and wonderful countryside. I would recommend that you plan your walking route before you go and take a map with you, as the paths are not well signed. Well worth a... More

Wow! Oslo is really a city built into the wilderness! I personally have friends that live 10 min. from downtown that have woken up in the morning with a deer in their garden.... In Oslo Marka, you can camp nearly everywhere, and it is a great experience. Even if you just like the nature, and are not such a big... More

Up and down hills, near to the city, and direct out in the wildness with possibilities to see wild animals, be alone, find a little lake, make good fishing, and maybe most important, both summer and winter (on skis) to walk and have a really fine form of physical activities.

This was seriously awesome. I wish we had beautiful trails that were so easily accessible where I live. We hopped on the metro (T line #1, red on the maps) and got off at the end of the line (Frognerseteren). This took literally 15 minutes. I was a bit nervous because we couldn't find a map before heading out but... More
