Curling at Snarøya Oslo – Try a new winter sport

Relaxing

"Curling at Snarøya" in Oslo is a must if you want to try a popular winter sport! I like it for its sociability and because everyone's rubbish at it...

Winter sports are tricky: most of them require expensive equipment and getting out of town to try, but curling is a winter sport for the masses. In fact, anyone who has played shuffleboard will see the similarities.

The curling hall is located on Snarøya, a peninsula just to the west of town which you can easily get to with the 31 bus from town (the stop is Landoddveien). You do need to be a group though and you need to book your lane in advance. It can seem expensive (around 4000kr) but the rental price includes the lane for 2 hours, loan of shoes and an introduction from an instructor so price per head isn't too bad. You can also book an instructor if you want some extra training, Dordi in particular is a bit of a character.

There are two things I like about curling – it’s very sociable and everyone is equally rubbish on the ice, even most born and bred Norwegians.

Tip: You can bring your own drinks and food, just no glass bottles and don’t consume them on the ice.
