Trail 21 KM Walk
One of the most important goals with Ecotrail is to get as many as possible out in the wonderful nature that Oslo has to offer. Nordic Walking is the popular term for walking with poles. It is of course possible to walk the distance without poles, poles are NOT mandatory.
The path follows the beatiful Bogstadvannet and Lysaker river. From Lysaker you´ll walk by fjord all the way to the finish line. You will pass the wonderful Vækerø park and the country side of Bygdøy.
The last 5km by the fjord is on asphalt.
The very last kilometer goes over the old fort called Akershus Festning and to finish at the pier called Vippa.
