In the arena

The spectator experience at Holmenkollen Skifestival goes beyond what is happening in the skiing tracks and in the ski jumping hill. This page will take you through our spectator areas and what you can find in the arena.

Spectator areas

Holmenkollen has two stands; the North Stand and the South Stand, and two other ticketed zones; VM-Haugen and Kapellskogen. All areas have access to food and drinks, view of a big screen and sound from the arena speakers.

In the arena you can find two "festival streets" with plenty of food trucks, merchandise and activities. Our spectator tent can be found close to the Main Entrance by Festival Street South. This is also the place for our after ski event, which is after the competitions on Saturday. Access to after ski must be purchased in advance, and you have to be older than 18 years to enter. The tent closes at 23:00.

The stands


The North Stand has a capacity of 4250 people, and takes you close to all the drama. From here you have a good view of the entire stadium, and you are very close to the finish line. You can also follow the competitions on the big screen and our enthusiastic speakers will get you in the right mood.


You can’t really miss it. The famous Holmenkollen Ski Jumping Hill has plenty of spaces for ski jumping enthusiasts. There are two areas in the stands. The premium spot is Section A, where you will have a great view of Oslo and it will feel like the athletes are jumping over your head. Section B-H is not as close, but will give you a great view of the Ski Jump. Section B-H is free seating.

Kapellskogen and VM-Haugen


VM-Haugen gives you the perfect combination of stadium vibes and the feeling of being out in the woods. From here you have a good view of the stadium and the targets, as well as the start and finish of the races.


The World Cup in Holmenkollen is an experience for everyone - including the youngest! While the adults can watch the drama taking place in the tracks, our mascot Braute offers various activities to entertain the kids. Activities include lazer shooting, face paint, quiz and an exciting trail.
