Plan your trip to Lillehammer

Winter sports arenas fit for the stars, local food, and cultural history. Welcome to the Lillehammer region!

The Lillehammer region is located in the Gudbrandsdalen valley in Eastern Norway, around two hours north of Oslo. It is known for the 1994 Olympic Winter Games and from the Netflix series Lilyhammer.

With mountains, rivers and Norway’s largest lake nearby, it is an ideal place for outdoor activities. Get some great insider tips on things to do here!

In summer, you can go hiking, horseback riding, and rafting. When temperatures drop, snow-covered slopes and prepared cross-country tracks await. Many of the Olympic arenas are still open to the public – you can even try bobsleighing!

Taste local delicacies and check out museums and cultural centres like Maihaugen. If you’re travelling with children, a visit to the Hunderfossen Adventure Park is a must.

Lillehammer has achieved the certification Sustainable Destination. Although this does not mean that the destination is sustainable, it does mean that it has made a commitment to work systematically to reduce the negative effects of tourism, while strengthening its positive ripple effects.
