Winter Hiking Alone

The original plan where to go cross country skiing today here in Oslo but that plan almost literally melted away. Spring apparently arrived in Oslo today an the outdoor temperature has been between +6-13 degrees Celsius in a sunny Oslo. That where not my original plan.

However, I had a plan B that I’ve been looking into the since a few days back when I started to scout the weather and possible activities in Oslo. During these days I found a stunning post in the Instagram account @Oslo by @ingridheggheim from Grefsenkollen. So that where the main goal with today’s hike where to hike up the mountain of Grefsenkollen.

I hiked up the mountain in a route that sent up and around the mountain. After Grefsenkollen I had my sight set on Lachmannsfjell. That became a bit different hike because of snowy trailers and deeps snow and when I arrived to the peak it wasn’t any view but it was a good experience in finding routes, getting off track and hiking in 80 centimeter of snow, but when finding my way out of the woods and down the mountain alone. It was the first time I hiked alone and it where a bit different but I kind of got into it. Can absolutely happen again. I had nice views of Oslo and perfect sunny spring weather during the end of the hike down the mountain at it was an amazing day.

Tonight I’m heading back to Sweden and Långberget ski resort. For cross country skiing. Will be my first time there and I’m excited about trying out new tracks.
