It's hard to beat a good walk by a peaceful lake in the woods. Add warming up by a cozy fire afterwards and you've got the perfect match! Enjoy nature as locals do!

This tour is the best way to experience how locals enjoy nature - and our expert guides know how to do it right!

The tour starts at in the city center near the tiger statue at Jernbanetorget. We then will take a train to Sognsvann - an idyllic lake surrounded by green forest. Norway is known for its perfectly working public transportation which can take you to hidden nature gems and best spots to enjoy nature. Just 20 minutes from Oslo and you are practically in the center of wilderness where the magical forest is saved as it was centuries ago.

Walk in the forest is followed by a campfire. By a peaceful lake in the woods, you get to learn how to make fire in the wild. We can talk about Norwegian outdoor food traditions, local life or other topics. You will also have a chance to taste some of the most "Norwegian" food every local enjoys from time to time! You will also get a Norwegian chocolate - something everyone has in their backpack when hiking in Norway.

After the cozy barbecue we will take a short train ride, and be back in the city center at two hours later.

Join us on a winter adventure! Whether you're looking for a peaceful hike through the snow-laden forest or an adrenaline-pumping adventure on ice, our winter tours in Oslo and its surrounding beautiful nature have something for everyone. Welcome to the winter wonderland in the forest high above Oslo city! The locals call this region Oslomarka, which means Oslo's forest. We offer a variety of hiking tours and activities that will make your winter experience truly unforgettable. People often say that winter in Oslo is dark and cold, but for those of us living here it is often our favorite time of year.

There is nothing like the feeling of walking among the snow-covered trees, breathing the crisp winter air, warming up by the fire and enjoying the peaceful atmosphere of hygge. Our knowledgeable guides at Oslo Hiking will lead the way, sharing interesting facts about the local area.
