An arena full of activity!

During all competition days, you'll find an arena full of offers:
- Are you an adult who wants to take the youngest children, and maybe grandma, to Kapellskogen?
- Are you in your 20s and want to experience the atmosphere at Haugen (formerly the World Cup Haugen) on biathlon Saturday?
- Or maybe you've been to "Kollen" many times and have your permanent seat in the Main Grandstand?

Arena map biathlon

In the "Kollen" arena, you as a guest have several areas that suit you and/or your entourage.
In addition to fantastic performances, roars, bells and flags - you will find many different offers and activities in the arena.
Catering outlets are scattered, easily accessible in the arena regardless of where you have tickets.
Do you want your taste buds to dance? The food carts sell a wide range of food - Indian, Mexican and Asian. Our food outlets also have hot dogs, burgers, packed lunches and other goodies - and of course a large selection of drinks for adults and children.

We recommend that you get to the arena early to experience the great atmosphere before the competitions start. There are no numbered seats for arena and grandstand tickets, so the earlier you arrive at the arena, the better your seat will be.

Great atmosphere at VM-Knollen and Haugen

If you have employees or customers with you, having your own lavvo at VM-Knollen is a real treat. From here you can see the slopes from "all sides" and have a view of the big screen.

The neighboring area to VM-Knollen is Haugen (formerly Gratishaugen). Here there is a cozy forest, "Kollen"-trollet and a fantastic view of the arena from the east. You can get close to the athletes at the top of the last steep hill, Hellner-bakken, and when they take the last turn towards the arena.

Kollen cafés

If you want to warm up with a hot chocolate, relax on a bench or buy yourself dinner - you can head to Kollenkafeen, located between the ski jump and the main entrance. This opens when the arena opens.
Admission is free and it is open until 17:00.

Want to go après-ski in "Kollen"?

On Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings, Kollenkafeen becomes Kollens afterski. Adults over the age of 18 can rock out and have fun, or just warm up and mingle with good music from 17 - 23.

Festival Streets North and South

We have two festival streets - North and South, see the arena maps.
Partners create competitions and other entertainment you can enjoy on your way up to the stands and audience areas. The "photo spot" in front of the ski jump was a favorite of many this winter, fresh photos were taken, which brings back good memories long after the event.
In the festival streets you will find the exciting food carts and a varied food and drink offer.
In the shop of our clothing partner, TwentyFour, you can buy the "Kollen" collection and find other great offers.
Nearby you will also find the Skifestival shop with, for example, "Kollen" bells, the mini version of Braute, flags and this year's "Kollen" hat.
At all outlets you can pay by card and vipps.

We also have "mobile sales boards" with goodies that go in the stands.
We recommend that you download the Skifestival app. This will give you great offers and important information throughout the festival period. More info here.

Great atmosphere when you get close to the athletes in the Main Stand

Good atmosphere in VIP "Kollen"

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 shooting range, and you are very close to the finish line. The competitions can also be followed on the big screen and our enthusiastic speakers will get you in the right mood.


If you want a more exclusive experience in Holmenkollen, the VIP area is the place for you. This can be found on the second floor of the Kollenkafe, while the VIP seats in the arena are on Tribune SOUTH. Read more about the VIP experience here.

Like Haugen, Kapellskogen provides the perfect combination of forest surroundings and a great arena feel. In Kapellskogen, we cater for families with children, offering activities such as face painting, a nature trail and a quiz, together with our mascot, Braute.
