Enjoy the fresh air of Nordmarka
Oslo is blessed to have the seemingly never-ending wilderness area Nordmarka right in its backyard, ensuring you can enjoy a breath of fresh air mere minutes away from the city center. The Holmenkollen ski jump, Frognersæteren, Sørkedalen and Sognsvann are recommended starting points for venturing into this beautiful recreational area, and they are all easily accessible with public transport. From here, a world of adventures and possibilities await.
A varied wilderness areaA day trip to this pristine, forested region is highly recommended if you are interested in hiking, fishing and winter activities. When the snow blankets the forest you can enjoy several cross country ski trails, many of which are lit up at night. During the summer you can test your biking skills on winding trails beneath the verdant boughs of this majestic forest. If you are a hiking lover then you can make use of the countless trails, as well as the sports lodges found in the area. Or bring a picnic basket and treat your friends and family to a fun day away from the big city life.
Experiencing the best of both worldsNordmarka includes the municipalities of Hole, Ringerike, Lunner, Jevnaker and Nittedal, and is the largest part of this stunning northern borough of Oslo. Having such a vast wilderness area right outside the city center is quite unique. This enables you to not only enjoy the big city charm of Oslo, but you can combine it with majestic adventures into the wild.
