Experience the winter in Jotunheimen

Norway is known for the long and cold winters and for all the outdoor activities that come with it, but in recent years it has been very varied how much snow there is in the lowlands and thus how much you get to practice both skiing and other snow-based interests. In the mountains, on the other hand, there is usually plenty of snow and you can go cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, dog sledding and more! Welcome to Jotunheimen and Valdres, some of the most beautiful and culturally rich regions in Norway, to experience a real Norwegian winter.

For several centuries, the Nordic people have practiced various snow activities both as a means of transport and as a hobby. Today it is still nice to be able to get a little break from everyday life and go out into nature and enjoy a quiet and relaxing holiday. And there is something to do for everyone; children who need to be “bent early” to become skilled skiers and beginners who want to step out of their comfort zone by trying out a small trip with snowshoes or along the road. More experienced hikers can also try dog sledding, a sport that is increasing in popularity and giving you a real adrenaline rush. You can also strap on your skis and walk as many trails as you want in the area and even spend a night out in the middle of nature! No matter what kind of plans you make, there is always a warm fireplace and a hot meal waiting for you at the end of the day. Spend a relaxing holiday with family, friends or girlfriend!

We offer both self-guided and guided tours, and can also create a tailor-made package that suits you exactly.

How is the winter weather in Valdres and Jotunheimen?

Valdres and Jotunheimen are high-lying areas in mountain Norway, and in Jotunheimen you will find the highest peaks Norway has to offer. This means that the weather is rapidly changing, temperatures can drop to over minus 20 degrees, and the snow with the wind can make the view cloudy and the trips demanding. In late winter, from March to April, the days get longer, and the sun can warm even the high peaks if you have calm clear days. It is important to wear clothes according to the conditions. We have more information about this during each trip, where we also have suggestions for packing lists
