Korketrekkeren, Oslo
(4.6/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • If you visit Oslo in winter and its sunny, you MUST do it, better with a group of friends to "compete" sledding! Better to rent the metal than the wood sled. 
  • The website said on the morning "We are open", so we spent a long time travelling out of our short weekend in Norway. When we got there, the Norwegian staff at the Winter Park simply told us "it is cl...  more »
  • 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 goggl...  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.
  • Great fun whether it is snow

  • 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.
