Went there on two occasions during a 5 day trip to Oslo. Really good fun. On the second day there was a bit more ice under the track making it pretty fast, but I think the track is pretty full proof and if you go up one banking it sort of throws you back on. Take extra gloves and socks... More

It's free to use and the toboggan rental, if you didn't happen to pack one ;-), isn't too expensive. On the day we went there were icy patches which were alarming on the first run but great once you realised you weren't about to crash horribly. The toboggan shop offered helmets for the toboggans, because of the ice, and they... More

You rent a sleigh/rodel at either Akeforeningen or Tom Murstad skiservice, the price is roughly NOK 150. The ride is about five minutes and at the end of the track you just take the tram back up to the start. You will love it, so make sure to have at least a couple of hours for the activity. Helmet, Snow... More

I haven't done this since I was a kid, but when I had visitors from abroad I thought it was worth a visit. And it was so much fun! It was easy to rent sleighs, quick to get back up with the metro, and the slopes were just steep enough. Perfect place to go with friends, and you are never... More

We went down the Korketrekkeren with some company guys. It was so much fun to do, even though the speed can really add up and corners can be a bit scarey. The rush is awesome. Just provide warm clothes and go :)

Fantastic experience. We took our 4 yr old girl down a few times. She loved it! Very friendly staff, a family ticket cost about £28 which included sledges and helmets. Spent all day up there, its such a beautiful place. Great cafe too, hot soup and yummy cakes!

The best toboggan place in Oslo. Sleighing down Korketrekkeren is free, but you might need to rent a sleigh. There are at least two places you can do that: Akeforeningen and Skiservice. Akeforeningen has more reasonable prices, but I've only used Skiservice and will probably continue to do so. Ask for Pick-up service when you rent your sleigh and you... More

This is really easy to get to, just take the metro all the way up to the end of the line. The toboggan rental company is well run and really reasonably priced. The run is great fun and you can keep on going as many times as you like as you just hop back on the metro. Go and warm... More

Found this on TripAdvisor and all the reviews convinced us to go. It was the highlight of our trip. The sledging is exciting but not dangerous, hire is reasonably priced and the Frognesteren restaurant was great!
