Oslomarka is fantastic for recreation. With children, alone or as a couple. It’s an awesome place for hiking, running, cycling or climbing boulders. It’s accessable by the subway, buses or train. Enjoy!!

So, in Norway, there is a rule. It is called free travel (fri ferdsel) it means you can camp for free almost anywhere (not in someone's yard) for 2 days. There is no such thing as a private forest or beach or mountain. You are...More
Take the Metro to Frognerseter and enjoy to experience the climbing over the city. If the weather is clear you get a magnificent view over the city. Start finding a path from Frognerseteren and choose a blue or red one, the blue takes you to...More
First things first, the metro (doesn't that mean underground railway) journey to Oslomarka is stunning as it slowly twists and climbs to the Frognerseteren terminus. From the station there are paths in various directions, and of various lengths so you are spoilt for choice. Forests...More
Lots of trails, quite well marked, but useful to have a map if you do not know your way around. Starting from Frognerseteren or Sognsvann is probably the easiest, but also a lot of other possibilities.
For winter - bring cross-country skies, and have a...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!

Yes, you get all info. you need at the central station, it takes 30 minutes to reach oslomarka with from there. Easiest is to take the metro to Sognsvann and start from there. Yes, 23 hours ticket is good.
