Korketrekkeren was initially the bobsleigh trail during the Olympic winter games in Oslo in 1952, but it was build some 50 years earlier. Since then, this luge or sled track has become one of the most fun things to do during wintertime in Oslo. It...More

I have to admit I was pretty apprehensive about sledding down a former Olympic bobsled run, especially since I 1) am a sedentary, uncoordinated person 2) never tobogganed before and 3) have seen snow a total of three times before coming to Oslo. It was...More

This is my personal opinion.  I think this activity is not suited for kids or people with only little skill in sledding. The whole route was totally icy, it was very dangerous. Not only that you were not able to break, but there were actually...More

The track is lit, so it's both possible and popular to use after dark. It's best to get in contact with the rental staff in advance if you want them to look after luggage.
