One of the advantages of visiting a capital so close to the Arctic Circle lies in the many ski slopes, natural and artificial, that are accessible from Oslo. The largest resort around Oslo is Vinterpark, located 30 minutes from the city centre in Tryvann, where the World Snowboard Championships were held in 2012. It is easily accessible on foot or by bus when exiting at the Voksenkollen metro station. The Oslo Vinterpark is one of the most popular ski resorts of all Norway, thanks to its famous Tryvannskleiva slope, built in the 1930s.
There, authenticity and modernity coexist, and you can come with your family to enjoy the 18 slopes and 11 lifts. Everything is done to make your life easier, so equipment rental on site is of course available.
For thrill seekers, 20 minutes away from the city centre is the mecca of Nordic skiing, Holmenkollen. It houses the oldest ski museum in the world, where you will learn about the sport's 4,000 years of history. Most importantly, it is known for its ski jumping hill. The Kollensvevet zipline takes you up and down the slope to experience jumping and flying through the air like a true champion while keeping perfectly safe. 361 metres of pure adrenalin rush!
