Snowshoeing in the Øyungen - Mellomkollen area
This will be a circular walk. We will take bus 51 until the last stop - Skar - and start snowshoeing from there through the forest. We will walk along the Øyungen lake, cross the Mellomkollen area, enjoy the very pretty view of the Maridalen lake and return to Skar, where we will take the bus back to Oslo.
During the walk we will try to avoid the winter routes where people go cross-country skiing, and take mainly the quiet summer routes.
Distance: around 15km
Time: 5-6 hours
Requirements: Snowshoeing doesn't require any special skills. Even if you are new to it, you should have no problems to do this walk as long as you are moderately fit.
What you need to bring:
- Snowshoes (please check the following link if you are not sure what it is: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snowshoe) and pair of walking/skiing poles.
- Packed lunch.
Hope you can join us!
