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. You will hear about the place and ruins there. After the break we continue to Ulsrud vannet, another lake on our tour. In spring 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.
I am administration professional with a Masters degree in International Management and HR, employed at the University in Oslo. Touring the forrest in my neighborhood has been my hobby for 20 years and I can bring my local knowledge of the place into the total nature experience of my guests. I am an excellent baker and will offer homemade buns and freshly brewed coffee and tea for a break during the tour. I consider myself a citizen of the world and enjoy cultural diversity AiRBNB hosting has been introducing to my life. Hence, I will talk and answer your questions regarding the culture, way of life, some history and much more, from my point of view. The total time tour is approximately 3,5 hours including coffee break. It is easy to moderate difficulty. Most of it is on a wide forrest trails with beautiful scenery and viewpoints.
