So much fun!

I've never been quite fond of winter sports... Maybe because I had never had the chance to really try skiing, snowboarding or even tobogganing. Well once I was in Oslo I was sure... read more

I've never been quite fond of winter sports... Maybe because I had never had the chance to really try skiing, snowboarding or even tobogganing. Well once I was in Oslo I was sure that I had to try at least the last one. Got in the metro and went all the way to the final stop at Frognerseteren. I could... More

Whilst we couldn't toboggan thanks to fog, we had a good look around and found a lovely café with roaring fire and lovely hot chocolate. The icy paths were fun to navigate. A local brought her own crampons! From then on we knew we weren't prepared. But we had a good laugh and ended up visiting the ski jump nearby.... More

If you visit Oslo in winter and its sunny, you MUST do it, better with a group of friends to "compete" sledding! Better to rent the metal than the wood sled.

The website said on the morning "We are open", so we spent a long time travelling out of our short weekend in Norway. When we got there, the Norwegian staff at the Winter Park simply told us "it is closed, as there is no snow". We found some more Brits who had also spent their morning wandering around the Winter...

We went here as a group of 4, and hired old-school sledges. They were amazing. So much fun, and such high speed. The track is very long, and you can bring the sledge on the subway back up. Bring goggles, if you break with your feet, you will be sprayed with snow.

This is a "must do" for thrill-seekers. It is basically the old toboggan-run from the 1952 Oslo Winter Olympics, which should serve as an indication of the speeds you can achieve. You take the train to Frognerseteren and walk down to the start which is just across the road below from Frognerseteren Restaurant. Look for the brown building/house. This place... More

This is a huge sledding hill on a mountain that I would highly recommend for an afternoon. It was one of the best things I did while in Europe for 4 months. You can rent sleds and gear, if you need it, when you get there. It takes about 10-20 minutes to get to the bottom of the hill depending... More

The old Bob-Sledge tracks are now open to the public. Dress for the snowy icy Norwegian klima and rent one or bring your own race sledge. Its so much FunFun but hurts your Bum (a little bit). Weeeeee!
