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

This has to be on anyone visiting Oslo to do list - simply take the train up hire your sled and helmet and then off you go - the first time down it took a while to get used to steering the sled but once that was done we spent the whole afternoon having great fun!

Having never done anything like this before, it was a lot of fun and fairly easy to get the hang of. Track is lit up at night. The people who rent you the sledges are extremely friendly and helpful too!. Must do this if visiting Oslo during the winter!. 125 NOK to rent sledge and helmet. I would recommend taking... More
