In the mountains halfway between Oslo and Bergen lies Hemsedal, a winter paradise that is named Norway’s best ski resort on a regular basis.

Hemsedal Ski Centre is one of the largest ski resorts in Norway, with more than 50 slopes and 20 lifts, as well as ski cross arenas and snow parks fit for all levels.

If you want some more sunshine, head on over to Solheisen Ski Resort, located on the sunny side of the Grøndalen valley.

There are several slopes designated for children, and Valle the snowman provides daily entertainment. At Valle’s Ski School kids can learn to become safe and competent skiers.

And when they crave variety? Let them sledge down the hills on a snow racer!

But this alpine mountain village in Eastern Norway has a lot more to offer than just ski slopes.

… or in one of the four resorts, where you can pamper your skin and muscles and stimulate your taste buds.

Followed by some wild dancing on the tables at Stavkroa, famously known as Norway’s best place for après-ski.
