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.

lovely resort. Would return. the only strange thing we found was that the mountain doesn't open until 9am and it closes ridiculously early at 3.30pm with 4 hours of daylight left... that was weird.

Good skiing for our ability and convenient ski in - out. Not ideal for rowdy 20 year olds but perfect for us with a 12 year old. It was expensive but we knew that anyway.

Quiet but great skiing.
