* Join me on a very Norwegian tradition; walking off-piste in the nature!

* This is the best place for taking pictures of Oslo and the fiord! Because of the closeness to the city you'll see the details, but still have enough distance for a great view. . .

We'll meet in the city center and take public transport to our starting point. It's a nice tour by tram, that takes approx 10min from the Central station. The rest of the time we'll spend together in the Ekeberg-park - the newest sculpturepark in Oslo - opened in September 2013. Hear the fascinating story behind, and discover the different installations and pieces of art popping up along our way through the forest. . .

After finishing the tour we'll return by tram, or you're welcome to stay longer, if you want. It's nice to enjoy a coffee or a typical Norwegian snack/meal in the cafe, or at the Ekeberg restaurant, with the most fantastic sunset in our city (on a clear day)

Itinerary

The Ekeberg restaurant is one of Oslo's best examples of a building in the Jugend style (Art nouveau), finished in 1929. It's really worth a visit, situated beautifully on the hillside east of the city center. The walk is nice to do the whole year - all seasons; it's how we citizens use it ourselves. This is also a beautiful and romantic place to go for a dinner at night. . .
