So much fun!

Great place for young and older people. Great sledging experience! Track is long and exciting! Great for one day. So cool that to get back to the start you have to take metro!

Super fun activity in the middle of oslo! You rent a slade for about 150kr, then you slide down the hill in a great speed with snow covering your face! amazing! Then at the end you pick up the slade and take the tram up again. And you slide down again and again :) Much fun but you need to... More

Even if you have a feeling you won't enjoy the ride, give it a try. I thought I wouldn't like it so much but I loved it. Remember about many layers of warm clothes, waterproof if possible!

Sleigh down Oslo's former bobsleigh trace. Recommended for all lovers of speed! If you are able to do it on a week day you will avoid the 3000 kids that come during the week-ends...

Once you get the hang of the sledge it gets quite funny. A couple of rides before you get it though. If you´re early it won´t be too many people and the speed you can have on the sledge is higher. Minus is the time you have to wait for the Metro before you can go for another ride.

This was the most fun thing we did on our trip to norway! We took the metro in the morning to arrive just after the rentals opened. there were enough people doing the same thing that we just followed the crowd but it was a tad hard to find b/c the signs were all covered in snow (and some of...

This attraction may be hard to find for a first-timer - I had difficulty finding it myself. When you reach Frognerseteran station, you'll see a lot of people with sleds rushing out and zooming down the slope. The key to find this place is to turn left upon disembarking from the train (which will be what everyone will do anyway),... More

The thrill of my life. I took the chance of trying sledging in this steep hill. It was scary but thrilling. Makes you proud you dared to try. Just a word of advice, use a helmet. I didn't and I think I would have been smarter if I had. You will never know when accidents could happen.

We don't ski, so the opportunity to sledge instead was great! You get a metro to the end of the line (about 30 mins from the centre), hire your sledge (just follows others to the rental lodge), slegle about 2km, then jump back on the metro to the top. So convenient. It might be worth getting there early (I think... More
