Why not add a couple of nights in Oslo – where we offer a centrally located hotel – if you are flying via Norway’s cosmopolitan capital?
Cross-country skiing

The well signposted trails, which are cut by Sindre, lead directly from the hotel’s ski room-cum-hire shop and wind through birch woods and across open moorland. Because they are in a relatively flat, compact area and all lead back to the hotel, they cater well for both beginners and intermediates – it is very easy to make up your own routes, and, because they criss-cross one another, to shorten or extend as you go along. Even the furthest reaches of the domain are accessible to more confident skiers without the need for transfers.
Lessons can be booked with the hotel’s own instructor* and, once you’ve mastered the basics, a good trail to start with is an easy 12km loop around the settlement, passing a café where you can pause for a warming drink. For intermediates, a highly recommended option skirts a couple of hills, affording superb views of the Rondane National Park.
*Cross-country beginners & improvers: add £90pp for two 90-minute lessons, all dates.

Other activities

If you’d prefer to explore on snowshoes for a day or two rather than on skis, you can hire equipment from the hotel’s ski room. The staff there will also be happy to book dog-sledding for you – they can arrange for a guide from a nearby settlement to bring his dogs up to the hotel for an enjoyable excursion across the plateau. Yet another option with which to ring the changes is to try your hand at curling on the hotel’s curling lane.

The world's only Aquavit barn!
After a day in the crisp, fresh air, what better way to warm up than by retiring to the hotel to sip traditional Norwegian spirits beneath the aged wooden rafters of the former goat barn, now the world’s only aquavit barn!
