Skiing in Norway
Norway is the birthplace of skiing. People have been skiing here for over 4,000 years and the country continues to produce some of the world’s finest winter athletes. Their success in the Winter Olympics is unrivalled, with 303 medals and counting! It should therefore come as no surprise that you’ll find excellent snow conditions, tuition and infrastructure to support the nation’s passion for winter sports.
Many of Norway's resorts are open from November to May with dry snow conditions more akin to North America than Europe. The climate provides reliable snow conditions with many resorts offering a snow guarantee – they will refund your lift pass if the resort doesn’t have enough snow coverage. That means you can enjoy great spring skiing at Easter and beyond when many other resorts in the Alps are closed.
It is the perfect ski holiday destination for beginners and intermediates who want to boost their confidence on wide open terrain. There are also challenging off-piste options for more experienced skiers and some truly world-class terrain parks. The relatively short flight opens up possibilities of weekend skiing and other short breaks with most resorts served by good connections to and from the airport.
Norwegian Ski Resorts
The Norwegian ski resort centres are of a high standard and modern in terms of facilities and accommodation. They are particularly well set up for families with plenty of activities on offer off the slopes including dog-sledding, horse sleigh rides, swimming pools, bowling alleys and even indoor surfing. Childcare options are available and the friendliness of the ski schools make a lessons a dream, for children and parents!
All of the resorts offer a good range of accommodation from large self-catering apartments or cabins to high-end hotels. There are also a number of B&B or half board options available.
Above all else you’ll find our Norway ski holidays allow you to escape from the crowds – even over the school holidays. The slopes are uncrowded and allow you more time skiing rather than queuing for lifts.
City Add-Ons and Ski Safaris
City stays add another dimension to your ski holiday and Norway has some great ones. The beautiful city of Bergen – gateway to the fjords – or the cosmopolitan capital (Oslo) can be included in our itineraries. Alternatively why not visit a couple of resorts in one trip with our Fjords and Mountains Safari which also involves travelling along the stunning Bergen railway.
All our Norway ski holidays are put together from scratch – meaning no two holidays are the same. We assemble a package to suit your needs, making the process as easy as possible and even making suggestions you may not have thought of. We do this to ensure the best possible experience so you’ll want to travel with us again.
