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 .

  • Easily accessible by mark with a lot of hiking trails as well as summer and winter activities. It is unique with such a city so close to the capital of mark a. The Tourist Association's cabins are scattered all over the forest. Good fishing lakes, bathing areas and bicycle paths.

  • Going for a walk in Østmarka alone there several times a month. The forest is suitable for long trips, short trips, swimming, light a bonfire and It is hilly and therefore it is also suitable for training on the bike and to the leg curl. Go feel free to ski trip, but be prepared for a lot of uphills. Is particularly fond of the areas around the Lake which is a great day out for families of young children. Bråten is a great option. Enter from Rustadsaga or Haraløkka.

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.
