Korketrekkeren, Oslo

4.5
#2 of 125 in Winter Sports in Norway
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. Make Korketrekkeren part of your personalized Oslo itinerary using our Oslo trip planning website .

  • Fantastik fun if one will do something else for the weekend or a week.. Good speed and cool turns. And when you're down, you take only the subway back up. Perfect, the move can be great so not particularly small children's friendly

  • I just spent an extended week end in Oslo. Me and my soon to be 8 year old son had discussed a trip to Korketrekkeren, watching youtube videos and all. So I decided to take him and my 4 year old daugh...  more »
  • Took with the kids last week and had big expectations to run toboggan. Rented Toboggans at a reasonable price (Family Pack) in terms of being able to ake part hours. BUT, it was so impossible to run sensible down the Hill, there are so many bullets and dumps that I'm sure many people here to the aker must chiropractor or physiotherapists. It's not fun at all. Almost impossible to get some speed for the bullets stop kjelkens progress and destroys the body to the one that sits on. Both the children and I was bored after 2 trips. How to set was kjelkeleien very expensive. I do not understand that it can not be done something with the ground, it should definitely run a preparerings machine in the track on a regular basis to smooth out some of the most powerful shots. Here is the rental companies who earn a lot of money on sled but seems to not care about the conditions of the track. It comes a lot of tourists here every day, and when I was there so I was simply embarrassed to be Norwegian and offer such a lousy and expensive offers to the tourists looking forward to ake. We're not going to go before someone does something with the ground.

  • Korketrekkeren is awesome. If you have some spare time in Oslo. Take the subway to Frognerseteren and rent yourself a sledge and a helmet. I would highly recommend helmet. Ride the Korketrekkeren and have a awesome time with friends and or family and take the subway back up again.
  • Definitely recommended. Don't want to leave. Good overall fun. Family friendly. Great views. Many laughs
  • What a great place. Went 17th September and they had received a newish dusting of snow. Rented the 'fast' sledge and had one of the best few hours ever. You can pick up some real speed coming down . The track finished at the Midtstuen metro station which you then ride back to the start. Make sure you wear some some waterproof trousers otherwise it's a soggy ride back to Oslo
  • This is more dangerous than you might think. One should consider not take the risk if not new snow has fallen. If you fall remove yourself fast out of your pitch. In away it could be compared with the bullrise in Pamplona. Cool but dangerous.
  • Awesome place to spend your time for sledging. Get down at Frognerseteren (Tbane 1 last stop) and rent the sledge and helmet and you are all set to start. Track finishes at Midtsun tbane stop from where you can hop on the tbane and get back to starting point. Will not recommend when its slippery outside, best time to go is after fresh snowfall.
