Vettakollen is a peak between Holmenkollen and Sognsvann that offers some of the best views you can get overlooking Oslo, the fjord and Holmenkollen.
There are several picnic areas and a lake for a little break along the way. The route is only about one kilometre one way, making it the perfect hike after a day at work. This hike is suitable for children.
Difficulty level: Easy
Distance: 1.5-2 kilometres
Time consumption: 1-1,5 hours
Transportation: Take metro no.1 to Vettakollen station or park your car near the station.
Insider tip: If you're up for a longer hike, head north once you've reached the top of Vettakollen and walk back down around to Sognsvann lake. You won't get much more elevation, but it's a beautiful walk deep into the woods.
