Oslomarka, Oslo

4.9
#2 of 6 in Wildlife in Oslo
Explore the wilderness within the city at Oslomarka, a vast natural area within Oslo set aside for recreation. The sloping, wooded lands include eight separate sections: Vestmarka, Barumsmarka, Krokskogen, Nordmarka, Romeriksasene, Lillomarka, Ostmarka, and Sormarka. Together, they take up an area twice the size of New York City. Head here to enjoy the natural wonders that Norway has to offer, located just outside the city center. Mostly undisturbed forests and hills, these areas make great places for walking, hiking, jogging, biking, and cross-country skiing. Enjoy the extensive network of routes here, as well as swimming and fishing in the lakes. Stop by one of the several cabins dispersed throughout for fresh cinnamon buns and hot coffee. Make Oslomarka a centerpiece of your Oslo vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Oslo journey planner .

  • Take the subway, Frognerseterbanen, to drive Vettakollen. Here follow the marked road Huldre road, Gulleråsveien and up Båntjernveien. It's steep upward about 2 km to Vettakollen. After 1 km you take the trail to the left on the road up to the right, go down to the sognsvann, about 3 km Past kilometres up to Vettakollen is steep, but when you finally are up, you'll find breathtaking views of Oslo and the Oslo fjord. Here you can both see over to the Holmenkollen, Oslo City Centre and up in the Grorud Valley. Take with drink, the trip up is not long, but still steep and requires good Footwear. Back is recommended the trip via the sognsvann. Nice nature and beautiful by Båntjern. Here is the picnic area with seating and barbecue. Have fun on a beautiful walk in the Oslomarka!
