Full description
Our trip starts outside Oslo Visitor Centre located at the bustling Jernbanetorget. We will hop aboard the Frognerseteren metro line taking a scenic train ride with breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape. As you reach the Frognerseteren station, you will be greeted by breathtaking panoramic views. We will take a leisurely hike through the glorious green forest and along mysterious small lakes that are said to be inhabited by the mystical creature Huldra. After we wander over the picturesque Fuglemyrene we will reach Fuglemyrhytta - a small cabin that offers a cozy spot to relax and take in the views. From there our adventure will continue through the forest to the most spectacular spot of our journey – the summit of Vettakollen mountain offering overwhelming views of the city and the Oslofjord. Take in the crisp fresh air and capture this moment with unforgettable photographs. After enjoying the view, we will stroll down to the metro station and finish our trip at Jernbanetorget.

You should take this hike! Our guide was top notch! Knowledgeable, courteous of our time commitments, was mindful of our needs, and very engaging. She took us on a medium difficulty hike through a winter wonderland. Luckily she brought extra ice cleats and walking sticks. I wouldn’t have made it without them. We lucked out with a sunny day after a snowy one so I got a lot of frame worthy photos. Was the highlight of my trip!
