Easy to access by foot, ski or bike. Roads everywhere from water to water and sometimes over hills so that you get a good view from the road. Excellent preparation for cross-country skiing, with updated status on maps. Cafes operated during all seasons.

As a local I would warn you not to visit Oslo like other capitals. The true charm of Noway is in its nature. And just a quick tram ride away you can be in the middle of it!

Go for a hike or use a bike. Perhaps also rent a canoe. You can find perfect silence. Oslomarka is big. Wildlife is rich. Elks, deers, foxes etc. Fishing possibilities in lots of lakes.

Walk in the woods, enjoy lakes and hills, visit some of the traditional resting places for travellers and enjoy view over Oslo. Alone, with friends or family, winter or summer, rain or sunshine Oslo mark is the best
