Frognerseteren to Kikutstua
Jan 2021
This is not a mountainous trip, so expect up and down most of the time. The tracks are good. It's crowded these days.

Nice hike from Skullerudstua to Østmarkskapellet
Feb 2020
There is no snow, not too wet, and actually quite sunny today. It is a brisk 45 min hike to a short Sunday service.

Hikes in Oslo vicinity.

Very nice hikes, both in winter and in summer. There are signals pointing to the different trails. Some hikes start right by the metro stations, so pretty easy to get there. Others require walking much more to the trailhead.

Don't overthink it. The trails at Oslomarka are very straightforward. Signs at every crossroad. Follow blue marks. Beautiful nature.

Not great signage, but beautiful walking
Jul 2019
With a day on my own, I decided to take the advice of the tourist info lady and catch the metro 1 to the very end at Frognersetteren, and blindly follow the blue markers to the end of another metro line (5) at Sonnsvahn lake. Difficult to follow but somehow did it in less than 4 hours, with a scenic lunch stop at a hillside cafe. Beautiful walking in the woodlands and across bogs and by by lakes, including lovely views, wildflowers and even a female elk (aka moose). Fantastic- lots more walking to do should I go back!

Central wilderness
Aug 2019
Oslo is surrounded by wilderness - the big forrest (Marka) with trials, lakes - all accessible for everybody and it starts with short rides by public transportation from the center of town. Thanks to every persons right to go (almost) wherever he/she likes (Allemannsretten) - you can camp, fish, bath (almost) everywhere.

Went for a 5k walk here last weekend. Absolutely stunning views though unless prepared, make sure you follow the blue routes which are walking routes and the red are the ski slopes 👍🏼

In summer you can go for long walks or by bike, visit small charming places serving bakeries and coffee. Take a swim in one of the lakes, stay over the night in a tent or a hammock, you can Even go fishing. In winter you can go cross country skiing meny kilometers or skating on The lakes. You can also light a fire at special places. Whish you a great day!

I have some of this city forest as my neighbor, just down the road. I love the quiet, relaxing atmosphere in the woods.

I can spend hours just listening to the birds singing, the whispering trees, and just enjoy the beautiful things that one can find there. I can have a trip there almost weekly, and both by foot, or by my tricycle. I can wholeheartedly recommend a trip to the city forest for all who enjoy being such places, as the exercise makes ones mind calm. For the ones that come here as a tourist, I can recommend Hovedøya, as this is very close to the city centre, and the island is so small that it requires very little local knowledge 📕 😎 most people are helpful to a tourist, but some local direction can make it work a lot better if you read some maps before the trip start. Hope to see you there! Cheers!
