My first sledding finally happened yesterday when my husband and I decided we're finally gonna do it after weeks of postponing. We're lucky it was a very fine sunny day. We arrived there at Korketrekkeren past 11 after having Svenska sempla and warm chocolate.
Sledding can be anyone's sport. It is more of a common sense so I think anyone can do it. That's right, anyone. Even though you're from a country with no snow. If you know how to turn right, left and break, you'll be fine. And knowing those are pretty easy. Mind you even kids as young as 7
maybe even younger are already trying this. Yes kids here are already adventurous, which is a good thing because you will think... if kids can do it, why can't you?
Okay. Seriously, I'm not really aiming to be a pro here, so without any more fuss here's a video of my first ever sledding adventure. Hope you enjoy watching!
For sled, helmet and glasses, you can bring your own or rent at Frognerseteren. We rented ours for 175 kroner (all included). You can use it for the whole day, as many rounds as you can. The length of Frognerseteren is 2 km with elevation of 255 metres. So after the whole run, you can ride a train from Midtstuen back to Frognerseteren.
Korketrekkeren is at Frognerseteren station, last station by T-bane, near the famous Holmenkollen.
If you haven't tried sledding, give it a go! You would surely enjoy it as much as I did.
