This family-run ski resort has exceptionally good service, easy-going slopes and an excellent range of non-ski activities.

Beitostølen (pronounced bait-oh-stir-len) has a down-to-earth feel. Easy to navigate, the ski area is ideal for building confidence, with dedicated beginner slopes, English speaking ski school and wide pistes for cruising.

You've also got plenty of options if the skiing doesn't go to plan, from dog sledding and swimming, to rafting down the slopes on inflatable boats. On the edge of a National Park, the setting is beautiful and the scenic cross-country trails are some of Norway’s best - this a great place to try a new discipline.

In the traditional village, everything is designed for convenience, with all amenities on the doorstep. Après-ski is low key, with live bands at weekends. All in all, Beitostølen ski holidays are perfect for first-timers and family ski trips.

Every holiday is tailor-made, just for you.

We spent February half term at Beitostolen and had a brilliant time. We stayed at the Stolstunet apartments which are only 5 minutes walk to the slopes. Everyday we all went into ski school (2 adults and 2 kids aged 6 and 8). The instructors spoke perfect English and taught all of us how to ski. The kids loved their lessons and were skiing with confidence down blue and green runs on the third day (having never been on skis before). The runs are all quite short so we felt comfortable letting them ski slightly ahead of us as we knew that everything ends up at the same point. Despite it being February half term the resort was quite. The most we had to wait for a lift was a few minutes and we never felt like there were lots of other people skiing past us at top speed. The food is expensive (around 3 times the price of UK) but we took loads in our hold luggage and cooked in every night. The resort offers lots of additional activities but all the kids wanted to do was ski so we didn't end up doing anything else. As a first family ski resort it is perfect.

Our resort was great very laid back and relaxed. Not too busy and perfect for what we wanted in a holiday - great skiing and friendly people.

Powder Weekend in Norway

29th January 2019 - Craig Charley

This past weekend has seen bumper snowfall in Norway - up to half a metre in places - resulting in heaps of fun on the slopes. Sadly, none of our team were there to enjoy it, but we've heard great things from our customers and from the resorts themselves. Geilo 'Magical' is the right word to...
