Relatively undiscovered, Myrkdalen is blissfully uncrowded, with quiet slopes for beginners and untracked off-piste for the adventurous.

Set in a serene region of fjords and frozen lakes, this modern resort opened in 2003. Still fairly unknown, Myrkdalen has grown each year, creating an uncrowded ski area that’s snow-sure from December to May.

If you’re an expert skier, don’t let the small piste area put you off - there's more off-piste terrain than you might expect. For beginners, the quiet slopes are ideal for building confidence, while intermediates can look forward to some of Europe’s best snow on the wide cruisey slopes.

Below the ski area is the ski-in ski-out Myrkdalen Hotel. This is the hub of the resort, with three restaurants and a couple of bars. Après activities include sledging, sleigh rides and, our personal favourite, indoor skydiving at the local wind tunnel.

Less than two hours from the airport, Myrkdalen ski holidays are a great option to combine with Bergen and Geilo for a Norwegian ski safari , while the local fjords make for a magical daytrip.

Every holiday is tailor-made, just for you.

Good clean resort expanding, 5 years old

Small but perfectly formed: would be lots of fun for short break or family if weather and snow good.

I have just returned with my family from the holiday you suggested. I must say that before going I was highly sceptical (after looking at the piste map and seeing as how there was just one hotel and two chairlifts in the entire of the place). But we have had one of the best family weeks of our lives! I seldom write emails like this but I sincerely wanted to thank you for the recommendation and also for being brave enough to strongly encourage me to book it. With young kids (aged 7 & 9) they went from tentative on the nursery slopes to tackling the “black” run #2 by the end of the week. Such a nice place – ideal for beginners/ family – you have a gem of a proposition here. And so quiet. Spent a great day in Bergen yesterday too – really lovely. All round awesome - thank you again.
