Korketrekkeren, Oslo

(190 reviews on the web)
Ski Area Nature / Park
Named for its corkscrew-like characteristics, Korketrekkeren tobogganing track sends visitors flying down the 255 m (837 ft) drop over 2 km (1.24 mi). Originally a bobsled track, it was built for the 1952 Winter Olympics but also hosted the FIL World Luge Championships in 1955. The track takes 8-10 minutes to complete. Located along the Holmenkollen subway line, the track begins at the Frognerseteren subway station. Here you can purchase drinks and snacks, as well as rent sleds and helmets. Hop on the subway at Midtstuen subway station and a quick 13-minute ride will take you back to the top. Be sure to dress in warm, waterproof clothes to make the most of the spectacular speeds and sights. Our Oslo itinerary builder makes visiting Korketrekkeren and other Oslo attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • I'd never been to anything like this and it was awesome! Rental sled/toboggan is cheap and you can ride the T-bane back up from the bottom. Pretty crowded on the weekend, but still worth it if you can only go then. Open for all ages, not just the kids! Highly recommend. If the track is icy, be ready to go fast!!
  • Lots of winter time action and fun to go sledging down the slope. Feels a bit unsafe, but lots of fun.
  • Rush in the middle of Oslo !
  • Fantastic fun, I went on a deep snow day so it was relatively slow but I can see that at speed it would be a bit more quick and so risky. If you plan to come being waterproofs or ski trousers. Jeans are not a good idea, but if you bring thermals and a spare pair of trousers it can be done without trouble on a warmer day (-3 c°)
  • There are a couple of places here that will rent you a toboggan. It's a pretty fast ride to the bottom of the hill, and then you take the metro back up. It's my kind of sledding!
