Nordmarka serves as an area of unspoiled nature within the city limits that provides various opportunities for recreation throughout the year. A wide section of forest features walking paths, cycling routes, hiking trails, and cross-country ski paths. If the weather's warm, go for a swim in one of the scenic lakes nestled among hills. Stay overnight or grab homemade snacks while taking a break at one of the many charming cottages, which are open year-round. Be sure to bring a map of the area, even though most trails are marked.

    WE visited a DNT cabin which was cool. The hiking was just like home, upstate NY. Train service made the excursion accessible.  more »

Where to stay in Oslo

A majority of Oslo's hotels and smaller accommodations cluster along Karl Johans Gate, the city's main drag connecting many of its downtown attractions. If you want something a bit more colorful than the average hotel, consider one of the many bed and breakfasts that have been cropping up in recent years. To escape the crowded streets, but still be walking distance from major sights, stay in the Frogner or Majorstuen neighborhoods near the royal palace. As you can probably guess, lodging is quite expensive in this European capital.
