Akerselva Running Loops

  •  /  km From You

Ready for a good run in beautiful surroundings? Whether your starting point is Grønland, Alexander Kiellands plass, Nydalen or anywhere in between, you should take full advantage of being so close to the river path along the Akerselva river.

The entire path from Grønland up until Maridalsvannet lake is eight kilometres one way, making it perfect for a run of any length. There is a gradual climb up the whole way, but the hard work pays off on the downhill home!

Difficulty level: Easy
Elevation gain: 140 metres 
Time consumption: 0,5–2 hours
Transportation: You can start from anywhere along the river.
Good to know: The lower parts of the trail are paved, while the uppermost part from Sagene to the lake is gravel. Akerselva is also a great path for walks, biking and child strollers.

Go to Outtt for more suggestions on how to experience the outdoors in Oslo.
