If you fancy heading to South Korea for the next Winter Olympics, Holmenkollen could just be the place to pick up some tips. Bring a notepad and a pen, it's not going to be easy. For more than one hundred years, Holmenkollen has hosted international ski jumping and cross-country skiing events. The events are part of the FIS World Cup and feature the likes of ski jumping and cross-country. 2017 saw the introduction of the RAW AIR Ski Jumping Tournament, which went down a treat. The first round of competitions start on the first day, ready for the grand finale later in the festival. Around 350 athletes from 30 nations attend the festival and the event is streamed to several million TV viewers. Of course, thousands of spectators also descend upon Holmenkollen for the festival, ready to cheer on their favourites from the sidelines. The main viewing area is the festival street, which is home to a giant spectators tent, live music and vendors selling a variety of merchandise plus food and drink. You can also buy the likes of hot dogs and burgers in the arena itself. For visitors truly looking to make the most of their experience, combined tickets are available for the Nordic Skiing World Cup and the Biathlon World Cup. You could also visit the Holmenkollen Ski Museum inside the ski jump, or photograph panoramic views of Oslo from the observation deck on top of the jump tower. With so many competitions and events packed into this three day festival, it could go one of two ways. Perhaps you'll decide the Winter Olympics just aren't in your future after all, or maybe you'll become the next big thing.
