SKI THE ICONIC NORWEGIAN FJORD REGION
WORLD CLASS SKI CONDITIONS
Benefiting from one of the longest ski-seasons in Europe, this idyllic region of Norway offers world class ski conditions that extend as far as the Easter break. Just a twenty minute drive separates the areas' two alpine ski resorts - Voss Resort and Myrkdalen Mountain Resort - both of which offer easy access to over 55 kilometres of well-maintained runs. A choice of crowd-free slopes await skiers of all abilities, and child-friendly ski-schools with English speaking instructors guarantee a warm Norwegian welcome. The resorts are also an inviting destination for snowboarders, with lots of opportunity to snowboard and ski off-piste, and a wide selection of cross-country trails provide a perfect alternative to traditional alpine skiing.
COMFORTABLE AND CONVENIENT ACCOMMODATION
The two family-friendly resorts offer a range of accommodation options, all ideally-located to provide quick and convenient access to the slopes. From the exclusive luxury of a deluxe hotel to the authentic home-from-home ambience of a traditional Norwegian log cabin, visitors can be assured of a comfortable base, no matter where they choose to stay. On-site restaurants provide a comprehensive flavour of the region’s traditional cuisine and superior spa facilities allow guests to relax après-ski.
PANORAMIC VIEWS AND ENTICING ATTRACTIONS
Away from the slopes, visitors can enjoy a multitude of enticing attractions. Traversing through beautiful fjord landscapes that open up spectacular panoramic views of unspoiled nature, the Flåm railway is the ultimate way to explore this dramatic region. Regarded as one of the world’s most scenic rail journeys, the train runs from the stunning Aurlandsfjord, crossing through a tributary of the Sognefjord and up to the high mountains of Myrdal Station. And if that isn’t enough, the UNESCO heritage site of Næroyfjord is also located nearby, offering 570 square kilometres of majestic and expansive parkland.
The town also offers significant historic interest. Founded in 1917, the Voss Folkemuseum is accommodated in an old farmstead, giving you the feeling of being transported back into history. A selection of ancient artefacts, hosted within the traditional wooden-wall housing, provides visitors with a real flavour of the working and living conditions that have developed over the centuries. It also boasts a great selection of restaurants, coffee shops, boutiques and other useful amenities.
