Great view over Oslo and it's surrounding, you can take the metro train all the way to songsvan and then there's just a 2,5 km hike up to the top. Highly recommended!

There are not so many mountains near Oslo, but if you are fond of hiking, I can recommend this trip. It is motivating to reach a peak with a great view.

Beautiful. Experiance the Oslo higher hike with basic public transportation. Many trails from the start of Vettakollen. View to all sides of the Oslo bay (fjord). To get to the top only 20 minutes from the subway.

Take the T1 metro and step out anywhere between Vettakollen and Frognerseteren for a beautifull calm walk. On every corner there is a sign with directions to several T-stations! Stay on the main road or take some well paved shortcuts right through the forrest.
