Winter in the Hamar region

With its wide expanses of wilderness, forests and hills, the Hamar region is the ideal location for a winter adventure.

In the Hedmarksvidda area you can join a way-marked network of trails stretching over 2500 kilometers all the way to Rondane.

Sjusjøen

Sjusjøen is considered one of Europe's best cross-country skiing destinations, and offers over 300 kilometers of trails prepared for both for classic and freestyle cross-country skiing. Among these is the Birkebeiner Trail, running like a thread through the area.

Budor

A popular, family-friendly ski centre with two lifts, five downhill slopes and around 100 sledges for hire, Budor is one of the biggest sledging centers in Norway. The area is prepared for snowboarding, has a big play area and a "magic carpet" for small children, as well as a lounge. Skis, blades and snowboards are available for hire. With more than 300 kilometers of prepared trails, Budor is an ideal starting point for cross-country skiing trips.

Ski equipment is available for hire at Budor as well as at Sjusjøen.

Dog sledding

Are you looking for a truly memorable experience? At Ilseng Farm there are 35 friendly huskies that simply love pulling the sled. You can control the dog team yourself, or join one of the experienced guides. The trip can be combined with a meal in a traditional Sami tent known as a lavvo, or an overnight stay in the mountain area.
