Lillehammer

 
 

Lillehammer is a small picturesque town with 25,000 inhabitants. There are many shops and café bars strewn along the snowfilled streets giving the town a very Nordic look. Multiple après-ski possibilities are available as this town hosted the Olympics in 1994: swimming, ice-skating, ice hockey matches, discos and Hunderfossen Winter Park to name but a few. The town services 5 snow sure ski areas: Hafjell, Kvitfjell, Skeikampen, Sjusjoen & Gala offering a total of 113km of slopes.

Skiing in Lillehammer

Lillehammer is central to 5 ski areas, the largest and closest being Hafjell just 20 minutes away which comes highly recommended. The ski area in Hafjell has now been extended and a new high speed state-of-theart gondola operates directly from the resort base. Here you will find almost 40km of piste. The other main area which we recommend to visit is Kvitfjell, 30 minutes drive beyond Hafjell. Kvitfjell is home to the Olympic mens downhill and boasts close to 30km of pistes. Both resorts offer floodlit skiing in the early winter when darkness falls and slopes are generally open until 8pm. A truly excellent area for the absolute beginner and beginner intermediate. Excellent snow conditions will ensure fast and heartening progress for all levels of skier. Transfers from Lillehammer to Hafjell are included, transportation to Kvitfjell will carry a supplement.

Après Ski

There is certainly no shortage of things to do in Lillehammer. The Maihaugen Museum is a fascinating trip for both young and old. The open air museum is a ten minute walk from the Birkebeineren Hotel, and within it, you will find Norwegian homes from various periods, exhibitions, a theatre, a fine museum shop and a café. Another museum you’ll find ten minutes away from the Birkenbeineren is the Norwegian Olympic Museum. Check out a few other Lillehammer après ski highlights below!

Hunderfossen Winter Park

Winter fun at its finest – take in spectacular attractions such as the Ice Hotel, the Ice Cathedral and Ivo Caprino’s Fairytale Grotto at this fantastic amusement park!

Tobogganing at Lillehammer Park

Winter fun at its finest – a tow-bar on the ski lift pulls you and the sled up the hill while you are sitting on the sled. Once at the top, a spectacular ride down a professionally prepped track awaits you!
