  • Yes, just hop on the metro to Oslo and the city centre in less than half an hour you are in the middle of a beautiful forest full of lakes and numerous paths. Beautiful in all seasons. Travel advice from Oslo central station by subway (T-bane) up to the last station Frognerseteren. Once there, make a short stop in the hut just below the underground station and then follow the signs to Ullevålseter and stop at the cabin for a quick meal, then onto Sognsvann from which resume tube back into the city centre. The walking trail is quite long (about 4/5 hours) so if you do in winter should start no later than 10 a.m. otherwise it is joined by blind towards the end of the path. In summer, the problem does not arise. We recommend that you bring walking boots and winter cover very well and consider that the snow might hamper the walk. Best done with skis or sled (always from Frognerseteren) which can be rented just next to Metro. Highly recommended!!!
