Norefjell Resort Guide
Insider tips from our team
Only two hours from Oslo, Norefjell is a fantastic option for families and those wanting a bit of relaxation time. The resort isn’t enormous but offers a good variety of terrain with some great off-piste and tree skiing for the more adventurous while the gentle learner slopes are near the hotel so it’s easy to break for hot chocolate.
Starting outside the Norefjell Ski & Spa hotel, the easy slopes lead via the lifts to the more challenging main area of the resort. There’s more terrain than a quick glance at the piste map reveals, especially if the weather is good and you can go right to the top - the views are incredible from up there too. Worth noting that to get between areas there is a bit of skating required so snowboarders may end up walking a bit. There’s even a fun small ski cross course!
Ski school starts outside the Norefjell Ski & Spa hotel with group lessons for all abilities, plus private lessons available for skiers and snowboarders looking to improve quickly.
