First off, if you expect Nordmarka to be the big and wild nature, think again. It is not some untouched nature-gone-wild area. There are signposts, gravel and dirt roads, old and narrow trails, dams and brigdes, and people. That being said, you can easily find...More

Yes it is. Start at Frognerseteren. Just follow the blue signs and marks. Thats the summer tracks. Try Tryvannstua, Skjennungstua or Ullevålseter for short trips. Kobberhaughytta is nice if you want a 1-2 hour walk each way.
