Description

Nordmarka - a place for activities and recreation.
The forest region in northern Oslo, Nordmarka, covers 430 km2.

Nordmarka offers great recreation opportunities all year round. During the winter there are more than 450 km of prepared, red-marked ski trails, and some of them are illuminated in evenings. In the summer you can find nice, blue-marked tracks for hiking, biking routes and idyllic lakes for swimming.

It is also possible to stay for a night or have a break at one of the many charming huts. The associations DNT Oslo og Omegn, Skiforeningen and Bymiljøetaten (the Municipality of Oslo) have several staffed and unstaffed huts.

The routes in Nordmarka are usually well-marked, but a map is recommended for longer distances.

Highest peak in Oslo: Kirkeberget, 629 metres above sea level.
Highest peak in Nordmarka: Svarttjernshøgda, 719 metres above sea level (located in Oppland County)
