Take your pick of some hotels of great character in very special places and enjoy the beauty of winter either with or without skis on a snow holiday in Norway in 2022/23. The cross-countryski domains stretch for miles, but you can also go snowshoeing or dog-sledding, seek out the Northern Lights, or embark on a great winter journey.
We offer snow holidays in Norway which offer both skiing and non-skiing activities. In keeping with our Slow holiday philosophy, the focus is on appreciating the snow-clad scenery. How you do that is up to you. Cross-country skiing, dog-sledding, a journey on the iconic Flåm Railway and through the fjords, snow-shoeing, a break in Tromsø to look for the Northern Lights, downhill skiing… Whatever you choose, you stay at charming, family-run hotels, hand-picked by us for the warmth of their welcome.
Where to escape the crowds on a snow holiday in Norway
When it comes to cross-country skiing, Norway has few equals. Fefor, Sjusjøen and Spidsbergseter feel refreshingly removed from everyday life; each place is paradise for cross-country skiers of all levels and also offers dog-sledding and snowshoeing. Geilo, meanwhile, caters for both cross-country and downhill skiers, giving it a wide appeal.
Our non-skiing holidays in Norway also explore some special places. Enjoy an all-round Nordic experience in Hindsæter; head to the city of Tromsø on a Northern Lights break; or discover majestic fjords by boat and train.

Choosing the right cross-country skiing holiday in Norway
In Norway cross-country skiing is a national pastime, but that doesn’t mean that the trails are only for intermediates and advanced skiers. On the contrary, if you’re new to cross-country skiing, Norway is a great choice – the domains cater well for beginners, and there’s no shortage of English-speaking instructors. Deciding on your level will help you pick the right winter holiday:
No previous experience; requires lessons. Should stick to green trails for cross-country skiing or nursery slopes for downhill skiing.
Has skied before and technique is now sufficiently honed to tackle red routes with confidence.
Highly experienced. Able to cope with the most difficult of trails/pistes (those graded black).
