Great experience! You can rent sledges at akeforeningen as well as at skiservice, located at the left and right side of Frogneseteren restaurant. Start early or later in the evening (on weekdays) to avoid the crowd. Wear a helmet (which you can rent together with the sledges) and water resistant trousers.

This is a must. Myself & my friends had seen the reviews online and decided to visit in the spur of the moment and we loved every second. Whilst it's pretty hard to get to and from the station to the toboggan hut, once you get going it is really good fun. We rented helmets & the toboggan, we opted... More

All I'm going to say is, if your visiting Oslo this taboggan run is a MUST!!! It's a bit scary in places but it's such a laugh! We took our 4 and 6 year old boys (we hired them sledges of their own) and they have not stopped talking about it since! Very easy to hire and once you've made... More

I´ll always recommend this for people even living in Oslo and it´s a great attraction! You´ll rent a chart and just out side you go down the 2km long ride down the old bob track through the forest. You just have to buy a day pass on the subway that take you right back up the hill, it goes every... More

My boyfriend and i visited Korketrekkeren after being recommended it by a friend. It is difficult to walk to the venue from the train station intially. There is a very cute cabin-style restaurant that is self-service, with some great food to try, especially if you are not originally from Norway. The prices aren't too bad either, especially by Norwegian standards.... More

This place is fantastic! Came to Norway as friends live here and they said this was a must do For only just under 140k you could rent a sled for the day and sledge to your hearts content. Top tip.. Get there at 10am.. Otherwise prepare to queue for a sled for ages!

Wed caught line 1 train to Frognerseteren. It was 30nok one way. The journey is beautiful. Takes about 20 minutes from national theatre. There was a big queue for the sledge hire but they provided free hot juice to keep us warm. It was fairly efficient. 135nok to hire the sled and helmet. You can pay an extra 25 to... More

Wow, what an experience. It is such a good day for the family. You can hire the sleds as there are two hire places. Try to get the second hire place as they seem a lot cheaper. They have wooden and sleds. 'Akeforeningen I Oslo. Kjelkeutleie' - look for this name on the shed on the left of the restaurant... More

we went this month and the train ride was like something out of Narnia - beautiful scenic train ride. Got to the train station and within short walk was the place we could hire the sledges from. The lady behind the counter was lovely and she even gave us some gloves as ours were very thin. The sledge route is... More

I was only visiting Oslo for 3 days and was originally thinking of going skiing, but as the price soon starts to add up, we thought we would try try sledging instead. And I'm so happy we did. We had loads of fun on the snow and best thing is its only 135 Nok to rent the sledge and helmet... More
