Songsvann is a great point of departure for walking in Nordmarka. It is easy to walk into Ullevålsæter and dozens of other great places in the forest. In the winter it is a great place to start ski trips.

Right at the end of the Sognvann train line. A short walk through the car park and you are in a gorgeous forrest around a beautiful lake - and all only 20 min from the centre of Oslo. Take a picnic - especially water, sunscreen and a hat. And your swimming costume - if you're brave enough - it's rather chilly.

Maybe the most visited place in the Oslo forest areas, a nice walkway about 3 km around the water. Very nice starting point for going for longer hikes though.

The lake is very easily accessible by metro--it has its own stop--and is very beautiful. If you're looking for total nature immersion, this isn't it, but it's a lovely place to have a picnic and enjoy the surrounding large lake and forest. Local joggers and dogwalkers frequent the paved path here, especially since the metro stop before Sognsvann, Kringsjå, is home to a large number of apartments. There might also be some hiking trails in the area, but I didn't have the time to explore.
