Winter in Horten

Cross-country skiing is a very popular activity in Horten in winter, as the landscape is highly suitable for this. Ice-skating is another option.

Cross-country skiing

The possibilities are many. The terrain around Horten is lightly undulating and there are 70 kilometres of tracks, many of them lit up, in the area. A map showing the location of skiing tracks is available from the tourist office.

Ice-skating

If the weather allows it, it is possible to skate outdoors during cold winters, when local lakes and ponds freeze over. Otherwise the closest indoor skating rink is located in nearby Tønsberg (18 kilometres away).
