Best views of Norwegian nature: panoramic view of lakes and forests.

Feel free to ask us for more information if you have any questions:

Maridalsvannet, or Lake Maridal, is the largest lake in Oslo, and serves as the main drinking water supply for the city. The lake carries its clear waters via the river Akerselva to the Oslo fjord.

The trip starts outside Oslo Visitor Centre at Jernbanetorget in Oslo city centre. We will then take the Vy train to Snippen station.

This is a great train ride so don't forget to take pictures!  We will hike up to the tall hill where some simple climbing is required. The view from this hill is breathtaking! You will see the most of Oslo, the Oslo fjord and a large part of Oslo´s surroundings. We will then stroll down to the great lake Maridalsvannet and finish our trip where we started at Jernbanetorget.

In addition you can make a campfire or try lunch in Norwegian style - please check our add-ons to this tour (you will see all options after you click "Book now" button).

What a great experience, definitely will make it to Oslo again!

Was an absolutely brilliant trip with Erlend, we are visitors to Oslo from Middle east (Dubai and Egypt) and we just love how organized the trip and how they take care of details and provide Halal food.
