Norway is a land of breathtaking beauty. Its great fjords, frozen lakes and mountains make for a fairytail setting. Skiers of all abilities are well catered for with excellent resort facilities and equipment hire. A wide range of traditional off slope activities include reindeer or husky dog sledding, snowmobiling, horse drawn sleigh rides, ice fishing, ice climbing, tobogganing and snow shoeing. Guaranteed snow, no lift queues, family friendly resorts and direct flights make Norway an ideal winter destination. It also offers the opportunity to combine a few days skiing with a short city break.
Norway's oldest Ski resort, Lillehammer is a picture postcard town combining traditional Norwegian charm with modern Scandinavian style. The main ski area is Hafjell, 15km north of the town where 16 ski lifts provide acess to 40km of slopes and a new gondola carries up to 2,400 passengers per hour. The ski runs are long and wide and for the most part uncrowded.
