Description

Departing from Oslo, set off on a hike to the top of Vettakollen and enjoy panoramic views of the capital and its fjord!

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 landscapes.

You'll arrive at Frognerseteren, Oslo's most northerly station, and then begin your trek through lush green forests and along ponds, where according to legend, magical creatures lurk. You will stop off at a Norwegian cabin called Fuglemyrhytta, where your guide will explain the origin and importance of these cabins in Norwegian culture. You will continue your hike to the top of Vettakollen hill, which offers a panoramic view of the city of Oslo and its fjord, Oslofjord. 

At the end of the walk, you will reach Frognerseteren metro station and be taken back to your starting point.
