Lovely place!

So many stunning views. You can always find a suitable track - from 1-2 hours walk until several days. Easy to access with public transport. Absolutely favourite recreation ground!

It is a good place for cross-country skiing, sledge and walk during winter, just a magnificent and huge forest. It is a great way to have fun or relax.

Fall: find mushrooms Winter: ski, sleep over at cabins (NB! you need to join Den Norske Turistforeningen for this), make bondfires and... More

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, I love it.

Within 30 minutes from the Oslo trainstation, you can find yourself with a sensation of bring in the wild. Endless possibilities to hike. Great first impression of the diversity of Oslo. ❤️

Oslo is one of the largest cities in the world geographically. Most of it is Nordmarka which has beautiful scenieries, a uge network of walking ang skiing paths. You will find many small huts where you can enjoy your sandwich (niste) or buy a bun and coffee.

If y you're in Oslo and want to get away from it all then take the Frognerseteren line to the end and you literally walk off the tram to a mix of hiking trails. The ride to the end is about 30 minutes. Depending on the season you can hike, bike or ski. There are short and long trails available.... More

Nordmarka is huge, so it cannot really be reviewed accurately in a few words. You can walk for days in these extensive forests north of Oslo, both winter and summer. There are several lodges serving food and you can even spend the night in some of them. Nordmarka is excellent for hiking, skiing, biking and canoeing.
