Less than two hours from Oslo, the little resort of Norefjell (pronounced Nora-Fee-Yell) hosted the Winter Olympics in 1952. Since then, it’s stayed relatively under the radar - we think it’s well worth rediscovering.

In a wooded section of the Scandes Mountains, the ski area has Norway’s greatest vertical drop - you can ski all the way from the summit to fjord below. Although the black pistes are some of Norway’s steepest, most of the terrain is better suited to beginners and improvers. And with the ski school managed by Norway's former national ski team coach, learners are in good hands.

The ski-in ski-out accommodation sits at mid-altitude, so you can slide downhill each morning, or catch a lift to the summit. Off the slopes, the focus is on winter activities - such as ice-skating and indoor climbing - rather than après drinking. This makes ski holidays in Norefjell a great choice for families.

"Norefjell is the perfect mountain retreat. Ski Northern Europe's greatest vertical drop and enjoy tree-line skiing all the way to the fjord - simply spectacular!"
