Even if I am an elderly Norwegian and have used all the various parts of our beloved "Oslomarka" during my life, it is always very energy refilling to take some time in this very special part of our Norwegian capital at all seasons! As others...More
This wild garden is certainly one of Oslo's foremost sites. Free access, clean air, possible to walk along paths or hike in the mountains and the forest, fish in the small lakes and so on. Sleeping in a tent is also possible -- all for...More
Here in Oslomarka you may see how Norwegians are in their natural habitat - try a discreet smiling nod or wave, hi, hey or "halloo"- chances are you'll actually evoke a positive response from usually secluded, serious, cautious Norwegians :)

No matter whether you take a bus, a tram or subway from the city of Oslo, when you get to the end station you are a few minutes distance from a forest. In any direction, because forests are surrounding Oslo. No building activity is allowed...More
Wonderful trek, so easy to find ways through the forest away from the main trail. Even though that is also great! Train to Sandermosen and walk from there or bus to Solemskogen and walk back and forth or round trip. The café in the woods...More

For steep and fast enduro-terrain, try Lillomarka or Frognerseteren. For somewhat flatter bikefriendly terrain, try Østmarka. Or for technical challenges, try most of Nordmarka, for example from Sognsvann.
Also almost infinte miles of gravel...More

Hi Lindar, you can easily reach the Marka from downtown Oslo, either with metro n. 1 to Frognerseteren or with metro n. 3 to Sognsvann. Also, many buses reaches other localities in the Marka. If you plan a longer walk with an overnight stay you will probably need a map and detailed info. You can take your tent or book a place in a DNT's cabin. Go to the DNT shop in Storgata 3, or look the: w w w outdoorlife . dntoslo . no website.
Trails are well marked and in summer you can follow the blue-marked ones. Try to avoid the red-marked ones since they are winter tracks for cross-country ski, sometimes crossing lakes and wetlands that in winter are frozen, but not in summer.
Enjoy your walk!
