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.

Relaxed with everything very close by slopes and lifts. Good for the whole family tiddlers through teenagers up to grand patents. Everyone e had a really good time. Quiet even on busiest week of year. Well worth going on free bus to sister slopes which had brilliant red runs and black run for more experienced skiers.

Lovely resort, lots of snow. Norway is expensive, but we were aware of that before travelling.

09/01/2018 Andrew Watson, Beitostolen

Was our 4th time visiting as a family. It's a small compact resort with lots of non ski activities on offer. We have tried Ice fishing, night skiing, airboarding, cross country skiing, the toboggan run and even had reindeer stew in a teepee under the stars. 1st few times we stayed self catering in cabins. Was cheaper than we expected as long as you shop smart! Last few times stayed at the Radisson (has a 25m indoor pool, decent gym, pool table, squash courts kids play room & nice open fire in the lobby!) Downhill Ski area is compact mostly greens & blues but well suited to families learning. We were happy to let the kids take off and explore after the second day on the slopes as nearly all of the runs end up at the same place. When you are ready for something steeper you can catch the free bus across to the black & red runs at Raudalen (same lift pass). You can walk everywhere in the central resort there are 2 supermarkets, cafe, chinese, pizza, few bars/restaurants. Would recommend self catering or try and get a good 1/2 board deal, this is norway and eating out is not cheap .The Radisson does a lunch bag for approx £7.50 and you can pack a full on lunch and snacks from the breakfast bar, worked out to be pretty good value. Highly recommend for young families on their first winter ski trip it feels safe, relaxed and village like. We've made loads of videos on youtube just search twoplustwocrew Beitostolen.

Why Scandinavia for Families?

Norway and Sweden are true winter wonderlands with picturesque villages, stunning snow blanketed forests, cosy cabins, husky dogs and reindeer which will capture the imagination of children . It’s not just about the safe compact village centres, the family friendly accommodation, superb skiing...
