Ski Holidays

The original home of skiing

Winter sports, log cabins and northern lights – Norway offers magical winter experiences.

Why choose to go skiing in Norway?

Norway is where skiing was invented, so unsurprisingly you’ll find a rich heritage of skiing – in all its forms.
Norway ski resorts are easy to reach. And thanks to their northern latitudes, they’re blessed with long seasons and snow in abundance. But Norway ski holidays are more than swooshing down slopes. There’s lots to enjoy, such as skidoo driving, cross-country skiing and even watching the northern lights (if you’re lucky!).
Norway skiing is ideal for beginners, families and even intermediates wanting an easy-going adventure. So start your search in Norway's biggest resort, Trysil. Its forest glades and night skiing are home to slopes for all abilities. The Olympic ski resort of Hafjell offers quiet family-friendly skiing and tons of cross-country terrain. Voss’ accessible pistes and stunning scenery make it a perfect winter getaway. And for tranquil skiing, Geilo, Myrkdalen and Beitostolen are perfect.
