Close to the city
Jul 2021
Great outdoors area for a run, acitivites on the water or just relaxing in the wood or park. So great to have it close to the city with just a ride with the T-bane away.

Amazing nature at the end of metro line 5
Apr 2021
It is a beautiful lake and great surroundings. It is a perfect place for a nice walk in any season. The walkway around the lake is not long (3 km) but is very wide and accessible with a stroller all the way. There are longer paths marked so if you are up for a challenge, Songsvann Lake is a starting point for hikes of different length and difficulty. During the Winter you can find excellent cross country ski tracks in this area and in Summer Songsvann turns into a beach where the more adventurous people can get a chilling swim. A great plus is the easy availability of Songsvann Lake, which is at the end of the nr. 5 metro line.

Very nice

The scenery is nice, the hike around the lake is easy and approximately 3 km. Often many birds. The only drawback is that it may be a lot of people hiking and running.

Great walking place at beautiful lake
Jun 2019
The lake measures 0.39 km², and is 17 meters deepest. In the summer it is teeming with life: people run, make barbecues, walk. it is a good place for a family with children. In autumn it gets quieter and calmer here.
I went to the lake for a walk and walked all around it (4-kilometer route around the lake). There are places on the route where you can light a bonfire. Along the way, you can also sit on one of the many benches or deviate a little from the main path and relax by the water.
In summary, Sognsvann is a pleasant place to spend time with friends or children.

Paradise at the end of a tramline
Oct 2019
A beautiful lake to walk around for about an hour. Especially lovely in Autumn. You can trek more in the woods if you want. Easy to reach. We were there on a drizzly October day but it was still really beautiful. If we lived in Oslo we would come here every weekend.

Great walking place
Jul 2019
The lake is not far from down town (15 min max) but you feel you are in the country side. Great place for hiking with many trails surrounding the lake to go through.

For a walk in the woods, this is a nice alternative.

We took the Metro from Stortinget station, to the end of the line at Sognsvann. From there, we wandered right into the trail around the lake. We chose the trail closest to the water, and found that it was quite populated, but not crowded. The trail is well facilitated for prams and wheelchair users. Our trip around the lake was about 3,5-4 km, and was time well spent, away from the traffic and tarmac.
