From Oslo. Nordmarka. A mostly forested region which makes up the northern part of Oslo. The area called «Nordmarka» also extends into the municipalities of Hole, Ringerike, Lunner, Jevnaker and Nittedal.
The forests are popular sites for hiking, biking and skiing.
Most of the forests are protected, and it is not possible to obtain building permits for cabins in the area. There are, however, many cabins already in Nordmarka with cafes and overnighting accommodation.
Svarttjernshøgda in Jevnaker is the highest point in Nordmarka, at a height of 717 m.
