Hiking Trail Water Body
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.

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.
