Nordmarka serves as an area of unspoiled nature within the city limits that provides various opportunities for recreation throughout the year. A wide section of forest features walking paths, cycling routes, hiking trails, and cross-country ski paths. If the weather's warm, go for a swim in one of the scenic lakes nestled among hills. Stay overnight or grab homemade snacks while taking a break at one of the many charming cottages, which are open year-round. Be sure to bring a map of the area, even though most trails are marked. With our online itinerary creator, Oslo attractions like Nordmarka can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.
We did a whole day of Sledging. It was so much fun, very cheap too. The cabin selling cakes and coffee was stunning. Plus their meringue was delish. more »

Vakker natur. Majestetisk kontur og rustikk panasj. De mørke trær og grønne nåler stikker meg som akupunktur på en sliten sjel. Et stillhetens palass og kjærlighetens reir. Mange av våre flotteste borgere har fått nytt Nordmarkens ømme grep i tidens marsj slik vi gjør i dag. Forhåpentligvis vil våre sønner og døtre være velsignet med det samme nærvær. Intet nærmere Gud er du enn det enkle grantre. Skogen vil overleve oss alle.
