Skiing in Norway
The Norwegians have a saying, "There's no bad weather just bad clothes". Outdoor life is in their blood and there's no better place to get your heart beating.
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.
Catch your breath on the uncrowded slopes, experience the outstanding natural beauty, the silence, the wildlife, and breathe in the crisp pure air. Carve down superbly prepared corduroy pistes. Stop by a traditional log cabin and enjoy a warm drink with freshly made waffles, cream and jam, then head for your next adventure. Perhaps dog sledding through the forest, snow-shoeing under the stars, or just relaxing in the spa.
Tuck into local fayre that will delight both seafood and game lovers - freshly caught char, king crab or perhaps an elk steak. Then reflect on the warm genuine hospitality provided by a proud yet modest nation.
Many of Norway's resorts are open from November to May with dry snow conditions more akin to North America than Europe. 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. So what are you waiting for? Welcome to Norway - it’s well worth exploring!
