Cycle along the fjord, into the woods or just enjoy the charming city center of Oslo
Oslo – the capitol of Norway! Located between the fjord and the forest. A vibrant city with a diversity of neighborhoods. Short distances make it perfect for cycling. Go sightseeing on two wheels, explore the forests and hills surrounding the city or enjoy the seaside. The hilly landscape can also offer great views.
Go sightseeing on two wheels and stop wherever you feel like. Museums, parks, cafes and beaches are never far away in this “small, big city”. The Harbour Promenade runs along the seaside of Oslo. Follow it all the way to Bygdø Peninsula, where you can visit several museums and beaches.
If you are keen to experience the wilderness, try the local forest “Marka”. This is the go-to place for Oslo people to find peace of mind. Endless gravel roads and paths are easily accessible from the city. Expect lakes, great views, maybe a moose and small cabins where you can get a coffee and a snack.
You get to see a charming city with a lot of vibrant and tranquil spots and you can enjoy food and culture along the way. See the Oslo Fjord and stop for a swim whenever you want.

Experience nature close up and challenge yourself with MTB-cycling in the forests surrounding Oslo. Lillomarka, Østmarka and Nordmarka (see below) has a lot of paths to offer for all levels. Cycle from city center or take the metro to the forest.
Nordmarka is well known for all the great gravel roads, where you can cycle for days. There are lakes, hills, small cabins where you can buy food and so many places to experience the quietness of the nature. Maybe you´ll even see a moose.
