When it comes to cross-country skiing, Norway has few equals. Stretching for mile upon mile, the impressive networks cater for all levels, and the fact that in Norway cross-country skiing is almost a national pastime means that the trails are superbly organised and that there is a particularly convivial atmosphere among skiers. If you are new to it, read our guide to cross-country skiing. Norway caters well for beginners, with well-organised ski schools staffed by English-speaking instructors.
If you prefer alpine skiing, head to the village of Geilo, which offers some of the best downhill skiing in Norway.
But it's not all about skiing; dog-sledding and snowshoeing are available at many villages. We also offer specific snow holidays for non skiers, including an all-round Nordic experience in Hindsæter, plus a choice of memorable journeys by Hurtigruten. The Northern Lights commonly grace the skies of northern Norway, so yet another option is a Northern Lights break.
All our winter holidays in Norway have been carefully selected – whether it's a cross-country skiing holiday, a voyage by Hurtigruten, or a Northern Lights break, we seek out welcoming, family-run hotels of character in idyllic locations.
