Traveling with my 24 year old son and his wife. My son wanted to do the Oslo sled hill. I am approaching 60 so I wasn't sure if this was for me. Nevertheless we got on the Metro in downtown Oslo and started the trek up to Korketrekkeran. The ride up was worth the trip as The scenery was awesome.... More

This experience was one of the highlights from my Norway/Sweden Trip! Absolutely riveting going down the hill on our toboggans. I recommend going slower the first time down just so you can get use to the course with all the twists and turns. I definitely biffed it on the first time down cause I was not used to the course...

I have to admit I was pretty apprehensive about sledding down a former Olympic bobsled run, especially since I 1) am a sedentary, uncoordinated person 2) never tobogganed before and 3) have seen snow a total of three times before coming to Oslo. It was reassuring that helmets were also rented out with the sleds. It was actually a great... More

So many mixed feelings about our day here ! Hands down the most exciting day of our 4 day trip to Oslo but hands down the most dangerous. I read a lot of reviews about the experience before going and most of them focus on the track being open or not. Despite there being no snow on the day we... More

Wasn't well advertised in town but saw it on trip advisor and thought we would give it a go, no regrets! Now one of the funnest days of my life! Well worth the trip! And once you hire the sled you can go as many times and you like with a cheap day pass on the metro :) we went... More

This is my personal opinion.  I think this activity is not suited for kids or people with only little skill in sledding. The whole route was totally icy, it was very dangerous. Not only that you were not able to break, but there were actually pedestrians and cyclists in the way! There was neither a warning about the icy route... 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
