Overview

WOW! Norway in winter! The Mecca of cross country skiing and the medal leader in the 2018 Olympics! Come join us on this adventure as we explore Oslo's cultural sites and then travel on to the Lillehammer area where we'll have access to hundreds of cross country ski trails. The area caters to winter sports enthusiasts with easy transportation via "ski bus" to the nearby villages and trails. The region is famous for having lots of snow well into spring. Our adventure will start with three nights stay in Oslo, the capital of Norway, which sits on the country's southern coast at the head of the Oslofjord. It's known for its green spaces and museums. We'll each have a 72 hour Oslo card which provides for free use of all public transportation, free entrance into museums, city tour, fjord boat excursion and lots more. From Oslo, we'll travel by train to Lillehammer and our home for the next 8 nights! Lillehammer (27,000 inhabitants) is considered Norway's oldest winter sports resort and was host of the 1994 Winter Olympics .The Lillehammer region is also famous for its ski terrain and excellent winter sport facilities. Nearby, at Nordseter and Sjusj√łen, you will find the best network of cross-country ski trails in Northern Europe, comprising 350 km. An excellent ski center is located at Hafjell, 15 minutes away by ski bus and offers a mountain village feel with full amenities and ski in/out accommodation. The entire area is well connected by ski bus so we'll have the opportunity/luxury of being able to choose from a wide range of trails for our daily outings.
