Chasing the sun in Oslo
Only a 15min metro ride outside of the city of Oslo is Nordmarka forest.
We were lucky to have a perfectly sunny day and nothing like a nice hike to make the most of the 5 hours of sun. The sun floated just above the horizon the entire afternoon, peeking through the foliage and greeting us at the top of the mountain. I felt like I was walking on icing sugar, with the snow soft and silky beneath our feet.
“Friluftsliv” refers to open air living and sums up how integral the outdoors and nature are to Norwegians. On Sundays, shops are closed and trails near and far from the city are packed. It’s definitely a lifestyle I can see myself following!
