During winter, there are great deals to be had on weekend hotel breaks in Bergen's many charming hotels.

With long skiing traditions and two ski centres, Voss Resort and Voss Fjellandsby Myrkdalen, Voss has become an established ski destination – popular amongst families as well as skiing enthusiasts.
 
Voss is a snow-reliable ski destination, with more than 50 kilometres of well-prepared slopes await you and your family, offering varying terrain ranging from forest runs to high alpine slopes with breathtaking views. A stay at the xx-generation Fleischer's hotel offers easy access to Bavallen by a speedy gondola with views of the lake.
