What you'll do

You will take metro line 3, eastbound towards Mortensrud. I’ll meet you at Bøler metro station. From there we’ll walk shortly into the forrest. 15 minutes walk through bumpy forrest trails before we come to a wide trail at Nøkklevann lake. We follow the trail along the lake shortly entering bumpy trails a couple of times. You’ll see some nice view points of the lake, hear the sound of forrest brooks, observe season colours of the trees and vegetation, see a couple of waterfalls, make some unforgettable pictures of beautiful Norwegian nature and meet locals on their regular weekend outings. At view point Sarabråten, about an hour and a half into the tour we will have a coffee break. All precautions for prevention of Covid19 are taken. You will hear about the place and ruins there. After the break we continue to Ulsrud vannet, another lake on our tour. In summer you can see beautiful waterlillies there. About half an hour and some more nice view points later I will escort you to Bøler metro station where our tour ends.

A wonderful hike in the forests near Oslo. Snezana shares her knowledge of the local area and it's history, bakes delicious pastry and brews great tea. Definitely an experience worth having.

My partner and I really needed to see and feel the outdoors again after spending 10 days in isolation. Snezana and this experience was more than the breath of fresh air we were expecting. My partner and I rarely do walks such as these, but it was the perfect blend of challenge and comfort. You really get to take in the beauty and tranquility of Norwegian woodlands, pick fresh blueberries on the way, as well as engage in sincere and candid conversations with the host. She was brilliant, super sweet, welcoming, kind and very funny. She made us these sensational jam rolls from scratch (even the jam). Delicious. It was a perfect first day out, with wonderful company. We will be sure to return.

This is a really great trip for anyone visiting the Olso area. Snezana is very knowledgable about a variety of topics. She was very thoughtful and asked if we needed a rest or wanted to stop for pictures. Although Snezana has not been offering this experience for a long time (so far), it felt like she had been doing it for years. It seems like her passion. The scenery was beautiful and she really knows how to bake. This felt like going for a walk with friends and I definitely would recommend it to anyone! Well worth it!

It was an amazing experience! Snezana is very friendly. Time flied unnoticed! The view was just mind blowing. This is very local and I can't say I would do it or organize it on my own. The buns were very tasty :) Thank you!
