When in Norway, head to the forest!

Wondering what to do in Oslo in one day? The Norwegian capital is located by the beautiful Oslofjord and is surrounded by lush pine forests and green hills. The absolute best way to explore the Oslo region is to put on your hiking shoes, take a panoramic train ride up to the forest and enjoy the fresh air and amazing views. We at When in Norway know the best hiking routes in the city and can show you the hidden gems rarely seen by tourists!

Explore the untouched nature of Oslo with a expert local guide with a small group of fellow travelers or on your own private adventure. We will meet in the city center or your hotel (private tours only) and take care of everything so you can simply relax and enjoy! On this page you can find easy hikes in the forests of Oslomarka, more challenging routes deeper into the forest and everything in between.

On all our tours we always allow time for breaks when needed, to enjoy the views, snap pictures and to teach you about the importance of spending time in the forest in our culture. Our guides will make sure that everyone is feeling safe and comfortable and are always ready to adjust the tour whenever needed. We love sharing our passion and knowledge of the area and we take pride in being a part of your time spent in our country.

Nature is all around Norway - and there's nothing more we love more than getting to share these special places with our guests. Come with us and let us show you the mountains, waterfalls, rivers, lakes and other unique natural features right at our fingertips!
