A walk through an old-growth forest, medieval ruins and the most modern part of Oslo.

We meet at the Tiger statue in front of the Central Station and take the metro five stops to Brynseng. If you don't know why there is a statue of a tiger in front of the central station, I will make sure you know before we leave for the metro.

From Brynseng, we walk along the Alna River down through Svartdalen (The Black Valley). Parts of Svartdalen is an old-growth forest with diverse wildlife habitat and is a popular hike for the locals. We follow the river as long as we can before it is led underneath the ground.

The mouth of the Alna River is where the Viking settlement grew into a town more than 1000 years ago. Further on we stop at the ruins of the St. Halvard Cathedral, one of the many ruins in the area that stem from the medieval Oslo.

The last part of the walk goes through Bjørvika, the modern Oslo, with its current and sometimes fascinating architecture. In Bjørvika we walk past Lambda, the new museum for the famous Norwegian painter Edvard Munch and the Oslo opera. We end the tour where we started, at the Tiger.
