Discover why skiing is so important to Norway's culture and visit a modern ski jump at Holmenkollen Ski Museum. Easily reached by metro, the ski jump was opened in 2010, and stands 64 m (209 ft) high. Hop on one of the enclosed elevators that bring you up to the all-glass starting box, where you can take in a 360-degree view of Oslo. Adrenaline junkies can ride down on Fly Holmenkollen, the zipline that runs 361 m (1,184 ft) and follows the same route as the ski jumpers. Also try the Kollen Ski Simulator, which uses advanced technology to show you what it feels like to ski down one of the toughest slopes. Stop by the museum on your way out to witness over 4,000 years of ski history and learn about how skis were once a necessity in this region. The price of the museum is included in your ticket up to the jump. Add Holmenkollen Ski Museum to your Oslo travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Oslo trip planner .

  • Jump tower was amazing. Loved the view. Ski museum was less interesting. But you should go here because of the incredible view of Oslo.
  • Loved this place. From the centre of Oslo it is a simple short train trip up to the hills above the city. You pay to go in the museum which contains many historical ski-related items. The highlight of the exhibition is surely the equipment from Amundsen's South Pole expedition (including notebook, skis, sled & even one of the trusty dogs which was stuffed after its death). After all this you can then get the lift up to the top of the ski jump and experience a little of how it feels to be a ski jumper. Here you can also just about pick out some of the sights of Oslo in the distance below.
