#1 of 58 Nature & Parks in Oslo
If you love nature, forest, hills, lakes, and hiking, trail-running and cross-country skiing, the Oslo Marka is your paradise !
Great walks in beautiful nature at all times of the year.
#2 of 58 Nature & Parks in Oslo
You can walk, ski, picnic by a lake, cycle, go to the various cafes, restaurants or even the upmarket Holmenkollen Park Hotell.
Next time we'll try to get a detailed map of the area though ... Wild nature next to a big city is very special !

Take the 5 metro and enjoy a stroll or jog round the lake (3.3km) or just sit and enjoy nature, take a picnic - or use it as a starting point for a longer forest walk such as up to Ullevålseter cafe (5km each way).
Small cafe there also, and lots of people Nordic skiing (there are separate designated trails) Was absolutely beautiful and a must for how close it was to get to from the centre of the city ~ Nature on your doorstep

Magnificent park easy to walk sculptures amazing!! Bridge of sculptures but monolith my favorite.. flowers mostly roses were beautiful.
Statues adorn the park everywhere; they are naked and depict all facets of humanity from relationships to life and death..... Wonderful park with gorgeous gardens, flowers, fountains and lots of green space.

Vigeland sculpture park - an amazing creation by the sculptor Gustav Vigeland made between the 1920's and 1943, - is the world's largest sculpture park by one artist.
The park contains 212 bronze and granite sculptures created by Norwegian sculptor Gustav Vigeland I visited this park in summer and it was great time to feel something energetic and fresh after snowy winters.

The island (peninsula, actually) boast parks, trails, restaurants, beautiful homes (including ambassadors' residences), and a number of museums, including the fascinating Norsk Volkemuseum of living history.
This peninsula offers a multitude of activities from great museums, wonderful nature and architecture to biking, walking and swimming (some of these are perhaps best for the summer time!).

Really quiet, lovely park with some excellent (and some just interesting!) sculptures along the way... also provides wonderful views of the city and the islands.
Our guide Joanna gave us a fantastic journey through the history of the park and the artistic works made by great artists.

When you follow this river you will discover a world with impressing waterfalls but also lovely modern architecture, historic buildings and nice parks.
Go north a km or so on the west side and you will come to the larger falls, some museums and a large wooden bridge to a coffee shop and a bronze statue on the east side in the park.

As it is close to the end of ski season the slopes were as expected however all in all we had a great few days fun at the Vinter park! Highly recommend a visit, the views of Oslo are postcard worthy!
The runs at the top of the park are fun, fairly easy runs with good variation and plenty of space, there is also some ramps and a half pipe if you're looking for more excitement!

This lake is a natural park where thousands of birds of all type stop by (and for many of them get their little ones) on their way down south or up north depending on the season.
A peaceful place for people appreciating nature.

The park includes a music pavilion, a beer garden, and statues of famous Norwegians including Henrik Ibsen and Ludvig Holberg.
Lovely park worth a visit.

The island was really worth a visit because of the calm nature and small traditional idyllic houses.
#21 of 58 Nature & Parks in Oslo
The park was full of families enjoying picnics, young people with guitars and snap-happy tourists like us armed with cameras.
Even though autumn had taken full swing, the park was still beautiful and in immaculate condition.
