Norway Ski Holidays Skiing, Ski Resorts, Ski Cabins - Norwegian Lapland

Ski holidays in Norway - stunning scenery, pristine forests, fjords, glaciers and guaranteed snow - this is Norwegian Lapland in the Arctic Circle.

There is a myth that most of the skiing in Norwayis cross-country orientated. Whilst there is km after km of cross-country trails, there is some really good downhill terrain for all levels and some serious back-country ski touring if you fancy going off the beaten track for an adventure you'll never forget!

Plus, from around October to March, there is the incredible natural phenomenon of the Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis to give them their correct name - blue, green and yellow streams of light high in the night sky.

Norwegian Ski Holiday Accommodation

The accommodation in Norway's ski resorts is typically of a very high standard whether you choose a luxurious 5* hotel, chalet rentals or log cabins. Some of the Norwegian ski resorts such as Trysil, offer doorstep skiing from the log cabins and apartments which is always a bonus especially if travelling with a young family.

As far as prices go, Norway as with Sweden, had a reputation for being expensive but these days, the cost of renting a log cabin or staying in a hotel is as competitive as some of the European resorts.

Booking a holiday rental, whether a ski chalet or apartment is easy and great value. Plus, if you travelling with a young family, holiday rentals give you that additional flexibility.

Ski Holidays - Best Time To Visit

The Norwegian ski holiday season typically lasts a good six months from early November through to May and normally with very good snow conditions throughout. Norway has many ski resorts with some being world class including Lillihammer and Voss which hosted the 1994 Olympic games.

There are over 18000km of pistes in Norway spread across more than 200 ski resorts. However, if you don't fancy skiing, there are plenty of other good fun things to try from snowmobile safaris, ice fishing and snow shoeing to name a few.

  • Hiking
  • Fishing
  • Swimming
  • Sailing
  • Kayaking
  • White water rafting

One of the most popular summer activities is to head to some of the fjords that are close to several ski resorts including Folgefonna. The fjords are simply stunning and are an ideal day trip.
