Ski Norway


March 9-25, Sat- Mon, 2024 {A} Ski Norway

Come ski the mountain plateaus of Norway for one or two weeks in March of 2024. The  snowfall is plentiful and the scenery is stunning on the extensive network of groomed ski trails. 

Week one, we will be staying at the Rustad Hotell in Sjusjoen, a 4th generation family owned  mountain lodge, with skiing right out the door. The Rustad Hotell offers delicious meals, cozy  rooms for socializing, a waxing room and 2 saunas. The accommodations are double rooms  with private bathrooms. Sjusjoen has been voted the #1 Cross Country Skiing destination in  Norway. You will have the option to ski the Norwegian Birkebeiner and the races will be held  on March 15th and 16th. You will need to sign up for the races on your own. Lillehammer is  also nearby where you can see the Olympic venues, visit museums and enjoy shopping. 

Week two, we will be staying at the Venabu Fjellhotell, a family owned hotel on the edge of the  Rondane National Park, with skiing right out the door. The hotel offers delicious meals,  spacious lounges for socializing, a waxing room, and saunas. You also have the option of  signing up for massages, yoga classes, dog sledding, snowshoe tours, and horse drawn  sleigh rides. The accommodations are a combination of double rooms with private bathrooms  in the hotel and cabins next to the hotel. 

At both the Rustad Hotell and the Venabu Fjellhotell, all meals are included: a smorgasbord  breakfast, where you will pack your lunch for the day, and a plated dinner. Both hotels offer ski  rentals. 

Before flying home, we will spend a day and a half in Oslo at a centrally located hotel.  Breakfast will be included but lunch and dinner will be on your own.
