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 :) Try Ullevålseter, Kobberhaughytta or Kikutstua...More

If you like to ski, Nordmarka is a fantastic place to do cross country skiing. January, February and March are perfect months to ski in Oslomarka (Nordmarka and Østmarka).

So many single-tracks to choose from, and various degrees of difficulty. 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

you can’t do in Oslomarka is to swim in salt water and use motorized vehicles. Otherwise its the perfect place for any outdoor activity including, hiking, bicycling, running, take a stroll, swim in lages, fish and more. Only a few minutes from city center.
