Our tour starts at Jernbanetorget in the center of Oslo, where we take private transport up to Mørkgonga nature park, and the kingdom of Gygra! Gygra is a famous figure in the local folktales. She lived in Gyrihaugen, and was the sister of the troll, or, in Norse mythology, the designation of a jotun woman. Today, there are several such petrified figures in the woods, and it has been debated which of them is the real Gygra. But we think there is a special one that has the right shape, almost five meters high it is quite inaccessible, and very well hidden in the woods.
Mørkgonga has also a very special geography and a unique plant life. We will follow the trail around and up, but for those who want a real challenge we recommend climbing up through the ravine! It is really worth the effort, whether you climb or just hike up the hill, it's a very dramatic and Instagram-friendly experience!
There is a lot of Viking history in this area. We then wander through mysterious Krokskogen forest, among its peaks and idyllic small lakes. First we will show you charming lake Migartjern. Then we "climb" up at Gyrihaugen (670 meters above sea level) to enjoy its spectacular views and breathing fresh forest air. Here we will have lunch under the open sky. After enjoying this gorgeous nature, we will walk back down, and get back to Jernbanetorget where we started.
