Winter without skis
Skiing is not the only way to have fun. Langedrag Nature Park is open all year, and here the whole family can see native wild animals up close. For the thrill seekers out there, how about driving rally cars on ice or being part of an elk safari on snow mobiles? Dog sledding and ice fishing are also popular activities. Both Dagali Skisenter and Fagerfjell offer tobogganing.
Where to stay
In Numedal you can stay in accommodations close to the resorts, apartments, individual cabins or traditional mountain lodges.
