Alpine skiing in family friendly hills or cross country stunning landscapes.
Plenty of culture and history. Nesbyen is really worth a visit in the winter.
The lush surroundings and gentle high mountains make Nesbyen a popular hub for outdoor activities. In winter, Nesbyen is a complete winter sport destination, attracting snowseekers with an alpine ski centre, kilometres of cross-country tracks and good opportunities for snowkiting.
If you prefer winter without skis, however, you can for instance go dog sledding or tobogganing - or simply enjoy a relaxing time-out at Ranten Bath.
Steeped in history, Nesbyen offers several attractions that will give you an insight into the region’s past.
Hallingdal Museum from 1899 is among the oldest open air museums in Norway, consisting of 29 historic buildings and around 30,000 objects representing the entire region. A permanent exhibition showing the nature and culture of Hallingdal makes up the main part of the museum, in addition to changing summer exhibitions.
Gamle Nes is the oldest part of Nesbyen. This is where the bourgeoisie and the civil servants of Hallingdal lived, enjoying a lifestyle far superior to the commoners. Step back in time by joining a guided walk, and stroll among idyllic houses dating back to the 19th century. Cosy cafés and galleries can also be found there.
