Panoramic view of lakes and forests.

On this trip you will see the clean Norwegian lakes and nature in all its beauty.


Maridalsvannet, or Lake Maridal, is the largest lake in Oslo, and serves as the main drinking water supply for the city. The lake carries its clear waters via the river Akerselva to the Oslo fjord.

The trip starts outside Oslo Visitor Centre at Jernbanetorget in Oslo city centre. You will then take the Vy train to Snippen station.

This is a great, scenic train ride so don't forget to take pictures! The group will hike up to the tall hill where some simple climbing is required. From the top of the hill, you will enjoy a breath-taking view of Oslo, the Oslo fjord and a large part of the surrounding areas. The tour will then continue down to the great lake Maridalsvannet, and finish the trip at the starting location, Jernbanetorget, back in the city centre.
