Hey nature lovers and adventure enthusiasts! Ever wondered what lies beyond the busy streets of Oslo? Get ready to be amazed by Oslomarka - a stunning natural reserve just a short distance away from the city!
Oslo is surrounded by a beautiful outdoor paradise, filled with lush forests, scenic trails, and serene lakes. These neverending undisturbed forests around the city are called Oslomarka.
This word is used to describe a forested hilly area around Oslo, and the name is actually just the finite form of mark (Norse mǫrk f) "woodland, forest".
Oslomarka includes not only areas within the Oslo municipality, but also large areas in Hole, Ringerike, Jevnaker, Lunner, Nittedal, Bærum, Asker, and other municipalities in Viken county.
Oslomarka is a beautiful outdoor paradise, filled with lush forests, scenic trails, and serene lakes. It's a haven for hikers of all levels. Keep an eye out for deer, squirrels, and if you're lucky, even a king of the forest - majestic moose!
