North Oslo comprises the part of Oslo north of the third ring road and the eastbound railway. This district is home to a couple of fine museums and most importantly the wide forested hills, Nordmarka, with countless lakes, fine paths (summer), ski trails, ski slopes (winter) and excellent panoramas. The big ski jumps, birth place of modern competitive skiing, are impressive constructions and offers fine panoramas. This part of Oslo offers unique recreational areas for both the city of Oslo's own population and for the many visitors. Hiking and cross-country skiing in the forests so close to the busy city has made this capital so rare.
The residential areas within northern Oslo are different and vary from the single-family detached homes in the hills up to Holmenkollen in the west to modern apartment blocks and terraced houses in the suburban areas of the Groruddalen valley further east.
