Been here every winter the last few years now. It's amazing that you can just take the subway up and go sledding in Oslo. It's so much fun going down the hill! It goes really fast though, especially when it's icy (which it will get during the day), so be aware of that. You can rent sleds (go off at... More

You take underground line 1 (westbound) and get off the terminus of Frognerseteren. From here, if you already have a sledge or a toboggan, you can already start tobogganing down the trail. If not, you can rent one there. The trail is quite long - takes between 10 to 15 minutes to complete depending on which speed you have. When... More

If you go to Oslo during the winter months, and you like excitement, you have to go here! This is what you do: Put on warm clothes. Take the metro to frognerseteren and look for a sledding rental (akebrett in norwegian, about 100 NOK = 15$) and go for it! Once you get down to the bottom, you'll probably see... More

Great outing in the wintertime. A little tip: Go early, as the slopes deteriorate during the day, and are at peak condition in the morning hours.

The toboggan ride was amazing fun, quite fast and my friends and I saw a few crashes on the way down but everyone stopped to help and other people on the ride were very friendly! I would say bring suitable wear because you do get wet and cold when its snowy. However saying that the lovely people at the toboggan... More

Originally an old bob-slope from the Olympics in the 50ties. Today all safetyrails and precautions is removed, and there are families walking in the opposite direktion.... which makes it all the more fun to slide downhill. Its free and far from safe. :-)

We're 2 lads in our mid-20s and we had a great time going down this track. Simply take the metro up the hill, hire a toboggan and then whip down the track where there is another metro stop to bring you up the hill again. We saw kids, families and older couples doing it, and why not!

Even if there is no snow on the ground in Oslo, there may still be plenty up here as there was in my case, nice train up through the hills where it soon gets a lot more scenic and snowy. You need to get the metro from the station not the train, we mistakenly got the train to Frogner which... More

Once you got off from the Frognersteren station, its a few minute walk to the sledge hire place - there are a few of them. We were 8 of us from the age of 10 to 50. Its not dangerous at all, use both your feet to break or one feet to turn. use your left foot to turn left.... More

Zipping through a 2 km toboggan run was probably the highlight of our Oslo vacation. It can be intimidating to begin with; but once you get the hang of it, you'll become addicted! The run starts at Frognerseteren and ends at Midtstuen, which technically means you sledge through 7 train stops in 8 minutes (it can take up to half... More
