Pleasant forest walk to the famous Holmenkollen ski jump, the heart of Norwegian skiing. Our guide will show you some beautiful views in a part of Oslo rarely seen by tourists.

The hiking tour to Holmenkollen starts outside Oslo Visitor Centre at Jernbanetorget. You will meet the local guide, and together you will take the metro line Frognerseteren to Lillevann. Even before the hiking, you can see that the view from the subway on the way up the hill is worth the trip alone, so don't forget to take pictures!

You will hike past idyllic Lillevann and then down to Frognerseteren restaurant. The trip follows part of the 50-kilometer trail, down a toboggan run from the first Luge World Championship in 1955, past Midtstubakken and further down to Holmenkollen Chapel. The highlight of this hiking tour is without doubt the majestic Holmenkollen ski jump, one of the most famous sport arenas in the world. You will then stroll down to the metro station and finish the trip at Jernbanetorget, where you started.
