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.
