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

It was so much fun! Even though the temperature outside was very low and the weather was very cold, we didn't regret choosing this activity. You gonna slide very fast and it's very breathtaking, the rest of the time you'll run towards the metro to catch up some more fun. You don't have to wear sport suits or need to... More

This is a nice and long slope for sledge running! When you get to the end of the slope you can use the tram to go to the top again(of course, you need a day ticket but children blow a certain age go for free). On the top of the slope, cafe Frognerseteren is situated. It is a really old... More

It was one of the most exciting days in Oslo! it is very cheap to do, just buy a day pass for the metro. Then use the metro with amazing views to climb up the mountain and sled down There are two companies renting sleds just remember you will want to have snow pants or rent them. The only issue... More
