Weekend hike to Kobberhaugen

I see the point why many Norwegians are crazy about their outdoors. Norway is a very very beautiful country, with stunning mountains, fjords, lakes, rivers, falls, name it. And all are accessible by their super convenient transport system. Even elders and kids are very active here, especially on summer. That is why it's really a shame not to go på tur (go on a trip) if you're living in Norway. So last weekend, my husband and I decided to go on another weekend hike, this time to Kobberhaugen.

Kobberhaugen is located in Oslo, about 1 hour away from the central. If you plan to commute like we did, you can take bus Bus 32 (from Dokkveien) to Røa Kirke, then Bus 41 to Sørkendalen skole. And from there, you can start the hike. The 5km hike is Easy level, which means kids can do it too.

In Norway I noticed that hiking is made easy for beginners. You don't need to worry of getting lost. There are blue marks on the trees, which serve as a guide. You just have to be keen-eyed as some are in a tough spot.
