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

In this trip you will see the clean Norwegian lakes and nature in all its beauty.

This hike is only for private groups 1 -10 participants per group. Ask us for more information:

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.

What a great experience, definitely will make it to Oslo again! It 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 is and how they take care of details and provide Halal food.
