Korketrekkeren toboggan run


Race down the slopes of Korketrekkeren, Norwegian for “corkscrew”, in Oslo and experience the ultimate adrenaline rush. This fun-filled attraction is a publicly owned toboggan slide and it is free of charge, so all you need to do is rent a sledge and throw caution to the wind. 
 

Experiencing extreme sledging

Getting to the toboggan run is simple, just hop on the metro to Frognerseteren station, where the course begins. This is Norway’s most popular toboggan facility, where you are taken along on a thrilling ride through the 2000-meter long course. As you race down you are descending 255 meters to the end of the track. Once you reach the end at Midstuen metro station, you can hop on the metro to the starting point and do it all again. It will take you 8-10 minutes of racing to reach the bottom of Korketrekkeren, and the metro ride to the top takes only 13 minutes.
 

Feel like an Olympic athlete

Korketrekkeren was built for the 1952 Olympic Games as Norway’s first bob sleigh track. Surprisingly, the wintery sport was never popular in the country before the Winter Olympics were awarded to Norway. Nowadays, the tracks are packed with people reliving the achievements of the Olympic athletes, with a spirit of fun and adventure. The course is only open when there is enough snow to go for a toboggan ride.
