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 day trip.

Read Matt Carroll's account of his daughter's first ski holiday (and his first time on skis!) in Myrkdalen for the Evening Standard or learn more about the lesser-known off-piste opportunities in Fall-Line Skiing Magazine.

Every holiday is tailor-made, just for you.

Our holiday in Myrkdalen was fantastic! Amazing snow, sunshine, empty slopes, fantastic hotel and food and fantastic ski school. We all had a great holiday! Having skied a lot before I was quite unsure about the size of the resort and number of runs, but it was a completely different holiday as we were able to ski together as a family and it was always one run back in perfect snow to the hotel if the kids got tired.

We had a lovely first family ski holiday with ski safari. The resort was quiet, but perfect for us. Literally ski in/ski out, perfect location, perfect for beginners, very picturesque runs and the night skiing was a bonus. The hotel is nice, very comfortable, we had rooms with a view to the slopes and ski park, very entertaining. The food was delicious and New Years in Norway was just magical. Snow was perfect, really powder, great conditions, great weather. We had a lovely time.

Myrkdalen is small but has everything you want for a skiing holiday. Not a lot of nightlife but that did not worry us. Staff were very polite and helpful. As we hired a car we could explore the area as well.

Unleashing Myrkdalen, Norway's Powder Weekender

12th January 2018 - Ross Elderfield

While Scandinavian resorts boast excellent snow conditions throughout a long season, they generally don't receive quite the amount of snow that North American resorts are known for. All except for one... Tucked away in the famous fjords region of Norway is the resort of Myrkdalen . Just two hours...
