Description

Set off on a hike through the snow-covered forests overlooking Oslo and its fjord, accompanied by a professional guide!

You'll meet your guide in the centre of Oslo, in front of the tourist office, and take the metro for an original journey that offers panoramic views of the Norwegian capital's winter landscapes. 

You will arrive at Frognerseteren, Oslo's most northerly station, overlooking the city and its fjord. You will then begin your walk through forests covered in a beautiful layer of white snow and along frozen ponds. You will stop in a Norwegian cabin called a Fuglemyrhytta, and your guide will explain the origin and importance of these huts in Norwegian culture. You will then continue your hike to the top of Vettakollen hill, which offers a panoramic view of the city of Oslo and its fjord, Oslofjord. You will enjoy a hot drink while admiring this view, before returning to the metro station and being taken back to your starting point.
