We recommend arriving at the arena early to experience the great atmosphere before the races begin.

All arena and trackside tickets are unnumbered*, so early birds will be able to pick and choose from the best positions in the stands. *except the ski jumping stand A.

By the main entrance you will find the festival street buzzing with spectators, a spectators’ tent, live music and stalls selling official Holmenkollen merchandise, food and drink. The area is clearly signposted.


Here is an overview of the different stands and the facilities near each stand. There are big screens, PA systems and food stalls in most ticket zones.

For families

The World Cup Nordic event is an experience for everyone – including the youngest! We have therefore created a family area in Kapellskogen with plenty of fun and games. Bring the whole family to the FIS World Cup Nordic event in Holmenkollen. While the adults watch the drama taking place in the arena, we offer activities to entertain the kids.
