This hike through lush Nordmarka takes you past the Øyungen lake and up to the viewpoint on top of Mellomkollen. From there you'll have great views of Oslo and the surrounding area. If you're looking for a proper adventure that's not too difficult, this one has some lovely highlights. It's the kind of hike that can keep you coming back to explore more of the forest.
Allow at least half a day for this hike. You can easily make it a full-day activity by spending some more time at the lake. Pack food and water as there are no cafés or kiosks in this area. Hiking shoes or boots are recommended as the ground can be wet and rocky.
You can also do the trail in reverse, enjoying the view before relaxing by the lake, but the climb is a little tougher.
