Oslomarka, Oslo

(4.9/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • No matter where you live in Oslo as it is a short distance to the forest and great hiking areas, summer and winter. Some stop by Metro or bus may need to some count on, while others may go (riding a bike, or even go skiing) from home and right out in the forest on not many minutes. Do you have time to spare so butter a packed lunch and bring your camera and get out-it's very beautiful in the forest!

  • You can do anything here anytime of the year. Skiing to fishing. Walking to swimming. Better when it's hot mind you. Easily eccessable and close to Oslo  more »
  • Terrific Park! The trees, the River, the fresh clean air. This is an ideal place for active leisure, as well as for leisurely walks. There is a specially designated place for lunch.
