What you'll do

On this hike we will walk parts of "Flyktningeruta"; a path through Østmarka used by refugees in the second world war. We'll see both beautiful nature and historical sights, and enjoy a day out in the fresh air!

We'll meet up at Jernbanetorget in the morning (or by any of the other main Metro stations depending on where you stay) and take the Metro line 3 to Skullerud. This takes about half an hour, and takes us to the edge of the woods.

From here we walk down to Skullerudstua where our path begins. On our way, we'll stop to see some sights (including a small cave used to hide and store weapons during the second world war). About halfway through the day, we'll stop and have a lunch break in beautiful surroundings, before we make our way back on a different track.

We'll end the day by taking the Metro back to the city centre.

The hike is approximately 10km long and takes about four-five hours to complete (including a lunch break, and stops along the way).
Good hiking boots are required! Parts of the path are very wet at the moment, and if you wear trainers your feet will get soaked.

I'm a student based in Oslo, with a passion for hiking and the outdoors which I love sharing with others! I've grown up with the local woods, Østmarka, as my backyard - and I've been hiking, canoeing, skiing and camping there throughout my whole life. In my opinion, hiking is best done with great company, and I'm excited to share the beautiful paths and facinating stories of Østmarka with anyone up for an adventure.

Camilla was an outstanding guide. She was so kind and sociable it felt like I was hiking with a longtime friend. She passed on interesting tidbits about the hike and history that I wouldn’t have known on my own. The landscape was beautiful and the cave was so cool! I’m glad to have spent the day hiking through the Norwegian woods with Camilla.

An aboslutely wonderful outdoor experience! Camilla is a patient, and very well grounded guide who made the both ourselves and the other members of the group feel like we were just friends going hiking for the day. A great way to enjoy the outdoors and get outside of Oslo for the day, the views are breathtaking, and the hike is very doable even if hiking isn’t your passion! Highly recommend!

This walk through the forest was delightful. Just enought to feel challenged, but very accessible. Camilla gave lots of options for the length of the walk and knew the tracks well. I felt very comfotable with her guidance and enjoyed the hidden features she shared. We also found quite a few blueberries even quite late in the season.

Hiking in Ostmarka was the best part of our Oslo vacation. The logistics of the tour was convenient as we were in Ostmarka after a 20mts metro ride from the city center. We strolled through the marked and unmarked paths to explore the fauna and flora of Norwegian woods. Getting on the historic cave, which is in the middle of the woods was a wonderful experience. Camilla is friendly and an outgoing person, a good company throughout the hike. Thank you, Camilla, for an amazing experience.

The hike was the highlight of my trip in Norway! It was a fun and cool experience, physically challenging but not too hard. A cave where Camilla took me was something I had never experienced before. Camilla was a good, caring host and fun to be around.
