The tour starts outside Oslo Visitor Centre at Jernbanetorget. We will then take public transportation to our starting point in Hammern. This is a great bus ride through the idyllic valley Maridalen and along lake Maridalsvannet.
We will then hike deep into the forest and up to the viewpoint of Kamphaug. From there we will stroll down to one of the most beautiful Norwegian lakes in the forest of Nordmarka - Skjersjøen. We will find a place to sit next to the water and enjoy a break and the view and the silence. Take your time and feel close to the nature.
After that we will hike along the wild river of Skjersjøen. There is a charming and accessible path along the riverbank, along which we will cross bridges, enjoy waterfalls, frothing rapids, lush trees and the twitter of birds. The trip finishes at Hammern and we will take public transportation back to Jernbanetorget. You need to bring food and water with you on this tour.
