Ski in Style No. 4 – Beitostølen / Jotunheimen

The cross-country skiing area in Norway that hosts the annual World Cup. The sloping forest trails and the panoramic plateau of Beitostølen and Jotunheimen mountains define this first-class area for nature lovers and die-hard adventurists.

Beitostølen gives beginners a red carpet welcome, offering the perfect surrounding for starting skiers. But this village by the foot of the Jotunheim, the highest mountain range in Norway, offers more attractive options for a great holiday in the snow. The varied skiing area with its special Telemark ski runs, a snowboard park and a kinder skiing area is the primary Carving Centre. 

Good news for skiers, who fancy more sensation. For even more variation the ski bus will take you to the area of Raudalen. On 210 days a year this wide scenery is covered with snow, offering a wonderful setting for a husky dog sleigh ride or for horseback riding. The wheezing and snorting of the animals is the only sound you will hear. A truly memorable wintry experience.

The ski area has: 9 lifts, 15 ski runs, green 2, blue 5, red 5, black 3. The biggest difference in height is 315 meters. 320 km of marked cross country ski runs, of which 6,5 km illuminated, 1 half pipe snowboard park. Après-ski, 9 bars and discotheques, 5 restaurants.

For another taste of superb Norwegian slopes we recommend heading to Beitostølen and the surrounding Jotunheimen Mountains, where beginner skiers, hardened mavericks and cross-country fanatics are all welcomed with open arms.

The alpine panoramas surrounding Beitostølen are simply breath taking and a perfect hotel to pair with this Norwegian adventure is the Herangtunet Boutique Hotel, close by to Beitostølen’s mountains

This stylish addition to the ski scene mixes the rustic tradition of its timber-clad exterior with a clever luxe vibe throughout. A magic retreat in the forest, if Norwegian fairies did design, we would have sworn they created this hotel.

A beautiful, ethereal escape, Norway offers the most sublime panoramas in the world, and here we offer two places that keep the sublime feeling going once back at base. Pick Norway for your ski holiday and you will have made a fabulous, stylish choice.
