Named for its corkscrew-like characteristics, Korketrekkeren tobogganing track sends visitors flying down the 255 m (837 ft) drop over 2 km (1.24 mi). Originally a bobsled track, it was built for the 1952 Winter Olympics but also hosted the FIL World Luge Championships in 1955. The track takes 8-10 minutes to complete. Located along the Holmenkollen subway line, the track begins at the Frognerseteren subway station. Here you can purchase drinks and snacks, as well as rent sleds and helmets. Hop on the subway at Midtstuen subway station and a quick 13-minute ride will take you back to the top. Be sure to dress in warm, waterproof clothes to make the most of the spectacular speeds and sights. Make Korketrekkeren part of your personalized Oslo itinerary using our Oslo trip planning website.

  • Went with some friends and we brought our own sleds (two on each sled). You can also rent a sled there, but I don't think they come with a brake. It was really fun, but also scary because there are...

  • Been going here since I was a child, great fun. Remember to wear a helmet, it can get really fast down the slopes.

  • Superb fun but got very busy. However renting a sled at 150 krone was one of the cheapest things to do in Oslo as everything so expensive. Definitely recommend it but would suggest getting a 24 hour train pass so you can travel back up from the bottom of the run to the top as many times as you like.
  • So much fun. Couldn't stop laughing. The landscape is beautiful and it's a great activity for a day. Probably best to do it when it has snowed a lot. I went end of January and wasn't too busy. There is a nice and warm place to go afterwards to get a cup of hot chocolate and food by the fireplace.
