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.

  • During the 1952 Winter Olympics in Oslo, ' was Bob, and Ake paths added just below Frognerseteren Restaurant. They got their trassè, with ake ground as colloquially named the corkscrew. Bobbanen was primarily handmade by two very skilled Italians from the Cortina, and it was to the left of ake ground. It was too expensive to keep, and was put down a few years later. Both courts had was made up of stone and timber in reason, and packed with tilkjørt snow, and so the water daily to attach itself, and bobbanen got blank smooth natural ice. Today be built the giant Combi-system with giant freeze facility to make black ice, IE. art is. The fun-and great fast the corkscrew is frequently used in the winter months of the stomach, also of well-organized ake clubs. Luge has been a winter attraction-and very popular-also for the tourists, and it be rented out by the Association in Toboggans Ake Oslo, and Tomm Murstad up there. Highly recommended! d:o)

  • As soon as there is enough snow, only to recover in the corkscrew! Here you can rent Toboggans from ake the Association and ake down a "forever" long before you jump right on the subway to do the same again. First aketuren I had here I laughed the entire trip down! Damn fun!

  • 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...  read more »
  • 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!
  • Dangerous and fun. Beware, some stretches are ice. You can and will hurt yourself on the first run.
  • I've only been here 2 times and run the toboggan. It was very late in the season, so not so representative of the place. You can bring your own toboggan and run for free if you have, or rent a sled with a helmet for 100/150,-for what one wants. At the bottom after the drive is the only 50 m to the Metro which will take you up again for a new ride.
