Norway – It’s More Than A Ski Holiday

So we were sitting in the office one sunny afternoon, dreaming of happier, snowier times, when we stumbled across this series of stunningly beautiful videos which perfectly illustrate all the things we love about Norway.¬†They made us yearn for crisp Scandinavian air and the feel of freshly groomed piste beneath our skis, so we thought we’d share them with you.

Outdoor Activities

If there’s one thing that we try to drive home about holidays to Norway, it’s that you really are getting so much more than a ski holiday. The country’s incredible landscape lends itself perfectly to getting out into the wilderness, be that on a snowmobile, a husky sledge or a reindeer safari.

Remember the time we pitched Norway against Finland in our Nordic Clash of the Titans? Check it out here.

The Northern Lights

Everybody in the world wants to see the Aurora Borealis, right?. Like, literally everyone. And do you know where’s famous for its displays of atmospheric luminescence? Norway, that’s where.

Family Skiing

As mentioned on more than one occasion, Norway’s an absolutely fantastic destination for families. With hugely varied piste difficulty across the board, it’s the perfect starting point for groups with mixed abilities, and a great place to build confidence from the ground up.

What’s more, Norwegian ski schools are well known for being some of the best in the world, with English-speaking instructors the norm pretty much everywhere.

Skiing In General

‘Yeah, we get it, families families families,’ we hear you cry, ‘but what about the rest of us?’ Well how about this:

  • Wanna talk about snow record? Norway barely has to keep one – it snows, consistently, every year. There is almost never not snow. It’s just not something you need to worry about.
  • Norwegian resorts might be smaller than those you’d find in Austria or France, but what they lack in size they make up for in quality. Norway takes pride in its skiing, and you’ll be hard-pressed to find better cared-for piste anywhere.
  • Finally, if you go at the right time, you could have all of that perfectly groomed piste all to yourself – outside of school holidays, Norwegian resorts are incredibly quiet, leaving you and your mates to play on your very own private mountain.

Truly Mind-Blowing Natural Beauty

Finally, we’ve got to talk about the way it looks. Being in Norway is a pleasure in itself, because everywhere you go is quiet, peaceful, and really outrageously pretty. If you like your skiing with a side order of true rest and relaxation, there really is nowhere better for it than Norway.
