We took the metro line 6 till last station which is songsvann, the ticket is 30 NOK each way, the place is very beautiful we were in February so the lake was iced with snow all around, there is a nice pathway around the lake that the one can walk and enjoy the fresh air, there must be a nearby place for skiing as lot of people were carrying their tools, yet we just enjoyed wandering around. Do it to clear your mind.

Always people walking/running. Easy to find the way around the lake, No restaurants, but a place to by an ice-cream in the summer. Family's having the lunch with them in summer, winter you have to use ski.
Just a quiet place. Subway takes 15-20 min from town center (beware of tickets, you might save a lot to have a look on ruter.no)

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.
