Would you like to experience the hike in the real Norwegian forest? Let's go to Nordmarka with Oslo Hiking!

The trip starts outside Oslo Visitor Centre at Jernbanetorget in Oslo city center.

We will then take the Frognerseteren line to Frognerseteren. Our group will hike along broad and small patches into the Northern Forest in Oslo. In this part of the forest, you can find fox, beaver, moose, deer, eagle, hare and many other animals! They are all harmless. But still, it is a great opportunity to see a wild Nordic nature.

We will have two breaks at a «hytte», the cottage of Skjennungen and Ullevålseter. They serve great coffee and fresh pastry! We will also visit the geographic center of Oslo, which is in the middle of the forest! We end our hike at Sognsvann, take the metro, and finish the trip at Jernbanetorget.

Travelling is all about sharing experiences, so why not go on hike together with friends or family, and book one of our tours as a larger group? We will be delighted to offer you a group discount:

Amazing hiking tour

An extremely brain recovering tour, beautiful forest, fresh and cool air, various mushrooms. The berries are tasty. The guide Tom is very friendly and professional. If I visit Oslo again, I will try the one day hiking 😁
