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

No snow on the main slope so had to use alternative route. More walking up hills than sledging down and there were children doing it who were scared to death as there were edges you could go off. Didn't feel safe and gave up with it all. Also more expensive than the 100 NOK that it advertises . . .... More

All looks exciting when you go up there- problem was the directions given to go 100m past a brown building and turn right were pretty poor and with not one sign and once three people went down a track 70m in front of us which was right- we walked and followed and went down what we thought was the right...

Video of our day at Korketrekkeren: http://youtu.be/fU9yVgfPJ3o We visited Korketrekkeren on a sunny Sunday, so while conditions were fantastic for sledding, it was definitely a bit crowded. This 2km sled run is great for any and everyone; we're thrill junkies and enjoyed every minute of it, but also saw lots of groups and families with young children that were having... More
