Sognsvann Lake, Oslo
(4.5/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web)
Get away from the city and enjoy nature at Sognsvann Lake. Located just outside Oslo, the lake is easily reached by car or public transportation and even has its own metro stop. Walk or jog the 3.3 km (2 mi) loop around the water, take a hike through the surrounding woods, or picnic at one of the many benches. Locals love the spot for swimming and taking in the sun on warm days. Before you head to Oslo, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Oslo trip itinerary builder, to make sure you see all that Oslo has to offer, including Sognsvann Lake.
