The Lillehammer region is known to the world for the Olympic winter games in 1994 and the Netflix series Lilyhammer. Go there for real and take part in entertaining skiing and other nature based and cultural activities.
The Lillehammer region has a special place in the hearts of many sports fans, thanks to the Winter Olympics in 1994 – one of the largest and most successful sporting events in modern Norwegian history.
Many of the Olympic arenas are still in use and open to visitors, making the region a popular destination for winter sports enthusiasts. In the winter season between November and April, there are plenty of opportunities for both cross-country and alpine skiing.
The region, which consists of eight municipalities, offers lots of things to do outside of Lillehammer as well. Learn more about Norwegian culture, history and food traditions, stay at historic farms dating back to the middle ages, and enjoy local food prepared with fresh ingredients. There are many ways to get to and around the region with public transport.
You’re also welcome to explore the great outdoors in several scenic national parks, such as Rondane, Jotunheimen and Langsua mountain. Here, you can go hiking, cycling, skiing, and horseback riding in the daytime, and sleep under the stars at night. These areas give you the very best of the Norwegian countryside – from high mountains to forest-clad hills and cultural landscapes.
