Summary

Combine two of Norway’s off-piste havens, Hemsedal and Myrkdalen, with spectacular views and exploration of the glorious fjords.

Scandinavia is perhaps better known for its family-friendly ski resorts with gentle terrain, but if you know where to look you'll find some of the world's best off-piste - and you'll have it all to yourself.

The drive across Norway from Oslo in the east to Bergen in the west is spectacular, past beautiful fjords offset by rolling hills and rugged mountains.

A great way to explore the more hidden ski areas in southern Norway, Hemsedal and Myrkdalen each offer something unique for the more advanced skier.

Every holiday is tailor-made, just for you.

Suggested Itinerary

We’ve put together our suggestion of how to combine some of Norway’s best ski resorts and cities.

All our ski safaris are completely customisable, so you can alter the itinerary to suit your preferences - whether that means more skiing, more sightseeing, or different resorts and attractions.

Hemsedal

Hemsedal is fantastic for off-piste lovers - whether you’re new to the experience or want to explore a rugged mountain area. Why not try ski touring while you’re there, to really get away from it all? If you’d prefer to stick to the pistes, there’s plenty for all abilities. Stay in a ski-in ski-out hotel to make the most of your ski time and enjoy the incredible vista.

Flåm Railway

As you drive through Flåm between the two resorts, why not stop and go on the famous fjord railway? One of Norway's most visited tourist attractions, the Flåm railway twists and turns 12.5 miles from the mountain station of Myrdal down to the valley floor through dramatic scenery and waterfalls. This is known as Norway’s Grand Canyon, rich in nature and with breathtaking views - all in all a must do trip!

Myrkdalen

Myrkdalen is only two hours’ drive from Hemsedal and offers a totally different landscape - the rolling hills are more reminiscent of North America than Hemsedal’s Alpine peaks.

Myrkdalen is one of the snowiest resorts in Norway, with regular snowfall that makes it a must-visit for powder hounds. It’s also home to Norway’s highest qualified ski school, if you fancy brushing up on your technique. The off-piste area is huge with plenty of variety, and the slopes themselves are wide and open so everyone feels comfortable no matter what their level. The skiing’s right outside the door of the hotel too, so it couldn’t be more convenient.

Explore Oslo & Bergen

You could easily add a city stay in Oslo or Bergen, or even both!

This ski safari also works in reverse, travelling from Bergen to Oslo.
