#1 of 6 in Wildlife in Oslo
Historic Walking Area · Hidden Gem · Wildlife Area
Explore the wilderness within the city at Oslomarka, a vast natural area within Oslo set aside for recreation. The sloping, wooded lands include eight separate sections: Vestmarka, Barumsmarka, Krokskogen, Nordmarka, Romeriksasene, Lillomarka, Ostmarka, and Sormarka. Together, they take up an area twice the size of New York City. Head here to enjoy the natural wonders that Norway has to offer, located just outside the city center. Mostly undisturbed forests and hills, these areas make great places for walking, hiking, jogging, biking, and cross-country skiing. Enjoy the extensive network of routes here, as well as swimming and fishing in the lakes. Stop by one of the several cabins dispersed throughout for fresh cinnamon buns and hot coffee. Make Oslomarka a centerpiece of your Oslo vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Oslo journey planner.
