A "runseeing" tour of some of Oslo's highlights. Signature landmarks include The Royal Palace, the Nobels Fredssenter, Akershus Fortress, Armed Forces Museum, the Museum of Contemporary Art, and the Oslo Cathedral.
A route showcasing the Oslo Cathedral and three nearby urban parks: St. Hanshaugen, Stensparken, & Slottsparken (Palace Park). Can be combined/mixed with our Oslo Runseeing & Akerselva River routes.
One of the most popular places to run in Oslo. A combination park and historic estate. Enjoy 4--5 km of beautifully landscaped trails around the manor (now Oslo City Museum), and the Gustav Vigeland sculpture park.
One of the longer continuous off-road runs in Oslo. The 5.5 km path runs from Vaterlandsparken north to Nydalen. You'll run through several small parks past numerous waterfalls, alternating between water views & wooded sections.
A lovely route just east of Oslo center that features two modern parks: Middelalderparken, built on the grounds of the former Royal Estate, and Ekebergparken, which features a 63-acre sculpture park and trails through a nature preserve.
A nearly all off-road route in eastern Oslo that combines several lovely parks: Birkelunden, Sofienberg Park, the Botanical Garden, Tøyenparken, and the Valhall athletic complex in Hovin. There's a weekly Parkrun in Tøyenparken.
A pleasant run on the 'Museum Peninsula' on the Inner Oslofjord, known for its museums, leafy trails, beaches, & upscale homes. Our 4.3 km loop on wide gravel paths is a combination of waterside & wooded sections.
A worth-it destination run just 7 km north of Oslo and accessible by transport. Enjoy the 3.2 km loop around the lake (lit at night!). There's also a running track & many km of additional trails offering wooded, hilly trail running.
For a taste of Norway's forested hiking/trail running, Østmarka & Nordmarka are two large forest parks within 30 minutes of Oslo and accessible by subway. Good combination of narrow & wide forest paths, fairly hilly.
