If you love nature, forest, hills, lakes, and hiking, trail-running and cross-country skiing, the Oslo Marka is your paradise ! Whatever the season, there is always a place to discover, a track to hike or to ski-ride. In Norway, the nature is so well preserved and easily accessible by public transportation. Well, it seems that nature-loving is the lifestyle of... More

Oslomarka is perfect for those who stay in Oslo but want to 'escape' for a couple of hours to a quiet and peacefull place! Beautiful woods where you can walk in and not even see a person on your route! Nice for children too! We've also visited the skijump Holmenkollen which is very impressive!

Not to be missed. Go to the end of metro line 1 and walk down through the forest to the ski jump and get some remarkable views and photos.

It's a huge and excellent forest area where you can go skiing in the winter, walking, bicycling and hiking in the summer. You are at the gate of this great and wonderful forest after just 20 minutes with the metro from the city centre. It's just excellent.

Easy access by public transport and Oslo's real treasure! Any time of the year. I love it the most in the summer season. Make sure you visit this area whenever you are in Oslo.

Inside the greater realm of Nordmarka. You will find the Holmenkollen Ski Jump amongst other classic Norweigan style cabins. If you love to either hike or ski, you have found paradise between the pines. Dozens of trails spread themselves out across the area, so it's a pick and go kind of affair. A map is a handy affair, otherwise you... More

Easy accessable forest near by Oslo. Oslomarka is a part og the larger area called Nordmarka. Oslomarka is suitable for skiing during the winter and hiking during summer - or you just take a walk. You can also visit the Holmenkollen skijump.

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.
