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!

A perfect way to spend a morning or afternoon! Our group bought a 24 hour metro pass and got the number 1 metro up to Frognerseteren. We rented sledges for around £10 each for the day including helmets and then had unlimited use of the 2km toboggan run! The metro passes the holmenkollen ski jump so you can combine two... More

This is amazing. I felt like a kid again! From the restaurant at the top you need to walk down the hill a bit to the start and then you're off. We didn't have waterproofs trousers and we were fine - a bit of a wet bottom but that dried on the train ride back to the top. There is... More

Rent a sleigh and have great fun going down korketrekkeren, then take the subway / t-bane back up and go again. Keep at it all day long, and stop for a hot chocolate at Frognerseteren

The end of the Metro line at the top of the hills overlooking Oslo. Use the Day Train pass (£8) to get there and to go back up the hill after sliding down. Where the sledge run ends is right by the Metro station with trains every 15 mins. Sledge hire is good, around £13 a day with a helmet... More

We did not know that this even exist before we went to Holmenkollen with subway. On Midstuen subwaystation all these people with sledges step in to subway and they kindly explained what it is all about. 2900 m downhill with a sledge from Frognerseteren to Midstuen. You can rent a sledge and a helmet from the top. Go in the... More
