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.

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!!

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
