Trail running in Oslo: Vettakollen (Norway)

When you all your dream of are mountains…you can find a small hill (just above 400m) just outside downtown Oslo – Vettakollen – with a beautiful view over the water and the city. It is an easy run from the city or one of the nearby tram stops (Vettakollen for the closest, or Songsvann for a longer section in the forest). Under pristine white snow with a glimmer of sunshine it is also peaceful and beautiful. A moment of quiet in a tumultuous time.
