What you'll do

We will meet in the city center and take the metro to our starting point for a hike, which is located in Kolsåstoppen nature reserve! The journey in a metro takes 30 min, and costs 35 NOK (around 3 euro) one way. From the metro stop, we will start hiking uphill for around 40 minutes in the forest. The hike is easy to moderate level, depending on your fitness. Nevertheless, anyone can manage it :) On the final destination we will have a picnic and enjoy the views. I will also provide you with various further tips about Oslo city, what to see, where to eat, what to do.
The hiking trip does not take long, and can be an added experience to your Oslo trip as a morning or afternoon activity. If the weather is good it would be scenic to enjoy the sunset!
The total time of the trip from the city center and back is 4 hours.
Other things to note
The trip is offered in a period of summer and only in good weather conditions. The hike is not suitable during the rain.

Tour guiding had been my hobby for several years. It is a natural activity for me, because I enjoy working with people, welcoming and showing them around. Here through airbnb experience, I want to share with you my passion for Oslo and invite you to explore with me its natural walks and trails. One of my favorite spots is exactly where I want to bring you. The trip will suit you if you enjoy hiking, forests and landscape views. I myself am an environmental scientist, hence hiking and exploring the Nature is an accustomed activity for me. If you have an equal spirit for adventure and enjoy picnic with a view after a hike, then this shall be a memorable experience from Oslo!

Where you'll be

The trip covers various terrain, going uphill for about 6-8 km. First, we will walk in the woody forest trails and then, more closer to the top, we will be hiking the rocky terrain. The top party is steep, but is partially accessible with stairs. The final peak is a rock formation, with an open space offering a scenic view over the Oslo city and the Oslo fjord.

Great hike with Irina! Genuine person and a good companion! Amazing views of Oslo from the top as well, of course. Highly recommended!

Irina is a fantastic human being. She's funny and really lively to be around. Has interesting stories to share and knows alot about different cultures that we ran out of time rather than run out of conversation. The hike was indeed beautiful too and Irina shared Norwegian crackers and brown cheese with us which was really tasty... I'd recommend this hike if you need a short fun hike within Oslo and go with none other than Irina 😊

Definitely recommend! The hostess was amazing and everyone in the group was friendly. The hike itself was manageable without (regular) hiking experience. The view at the top was spectacular.

Although due to bad weather we didn't make the trip, Irina gave us a good tour of the city with quite a lot of stories, which is great! Also, I got to know two American girls, Amanda and Alex, they are lovely!
