Alpine skiing in Oppdal.

Skiing, running, or biking down gentle mountainsides, traditional food that will make your mouth water, and encounters with the awe-inspiring musk ox – no matter the season, Oppdal has you covered.

In Oppdal in the southern part of Trøndelag, you are always close to nature. The mountains extend from Dovrefjell in the south to Trollheimen in the north, and the highlights differ depending on what time of the year you choose to go.

The village of Oppdal has long traditions for winter sports and is one of central Norway’s most popular winter destinations. If you want to go alpine skiing, you can choose between four mountains and a number of lifts and slopes. If you prefer cross-country skiing, the prepared tracks are many and the mountain plateaus wide.

Winter is long and often overlaps with spring, which means that you might be able to go skiing on one day and running or biking the next.

In the summer and autumn, you can hike on an extensive trail network or follow the pilgrim path towards Trondheim. Maintenance is provided by 45,000 grazing sheep.

No matter the season, you’ll want to join a musk ox safari! Bring your camera – but follow your guide’s instructions, and don’t go to close, as the imposing animals can be quite dangerous.

In the middle of this beautiful scenery, you’ll find a vibrant and hospitable community, tasty food in pleasant dining places, and plenty of activities both indoors and outside.
