Overview

Game-watching in the fairytale forest and dinner and bonfire chat with the farm girl Hanna. Discover a piece of untouched nature in historical surroundings in Hornimarka and the fairytale forest. A gem only 25 minutes from Oslo.

Game-watching in the fairytale forest and dinner and bonfire at Hannes

Welcome by Hanne at Rønningen farm. We are met by Hanne who tells a little about the history of the place and the people. Each is given a baguette and a bottle of water that we take with us on the trip out into the woods. The walk lasts about 4 hours, and may be adapted to a better fit for the group. Discover untouched nature in historical surroundings, only 25 minutes from Oslo.

We move out into Hornimarka and the fairytale forest. The first stop is at Persbråten, an old farmhouse. We walk along Urdselva up Urdsdalen. The river originates from the lake Svartvann, which is located a few km further up in the valley. There are several exciting waterfalls to see along the way, these are extra beautiful after a lot of rainfall. There is a rich fauna in this area, moose and deer live here ... Dwarf woodpeckers, wasps and peregrine falcons are rare birds that live in the area, and if we are lucky, we can spot these, ... we recommend to have the camera at hand. Old forest, narrow valleys and steep mountain slopes are also something that meets us along the way.

Some distance up in the valley we come to several places with an exciting history. We take a detour up to Risfjellkastet, where there are tombs (piles) from the Bronze Age. From the cairns we go northeast to Risfjellet's steep descent, from here there is a magnificent view of Kolsås, Sandvika and the fjord. After a break here, we return down to the farm.

Back on the farm, the farm girl Hanne will guide you into the dining room where a wonderful meal awaits us. Bonfire talk, nice company and summary of the trip. Dinner is served n in the lavvo, in the barn or in Jaktslottet.

Practical info:

The trip is in rough terrain so shoes with a rough sole are important. Physically demanding trip. Bring a small backpack.

Access to / from Oslo in the same way as upon arrival; by minibus, taxi or regular bus to Skui and 2 km walk to the farm
