Winter Activities in the Drammen Region

Go skating in the center of Drammen, try cross-country skiing in the Finnemarka forest, or go snowboarding at Drammen Ski Center. Lots of wintry fun.

Cross-country skiing in Finnemarka forest

If you would like to go cross-country skiing in snow-clad surroundings, you should try the wooded mountain area of Finnemarka. In the winter this is a skier's paradise not far from the city center of Drammen. Here you will find miles of prepared cross-country tracks. One of the most popular places to start skiing is at Eiksetra, south of Garsjø lake.

Drammen Ski Center

This popular ski center has several miles of slopes, and an altitude difference of 985 feet. The Drammen Ski Centre has a ski school and offers ski rental as well.

Skating at Bragernes Torg town square

Every winter a part of the Bragernes Torg town square in the middle of Drammen transforms into a skating rink. Here, young and old can have a nice time after some shopping, or go skating before they go to the cinema or theater.

Marienlyst Skating Rink

The rink is open for guests and schools during the daytime, whilst in the evenings it is used by local clubs and organizations.
