Norway ski road trip

The secret to skiing lies in the details. Here we take care of all details and you’ll enjoy your ski vacation.
The trip starts in Bergen where our guide will be there ready to meet you. Our destinations include a variety of different localities in western Norway, as: Voss Resort, in Myrkdalen, in Sogndal & Hemsedal, these resorts are real powder paradises.
There are small towns, great opportunities, cultural scenes, fjords, traditional food, local brewery tour and inspiring mountains to explore with our professional mountain guides.
The whole concept is based on the idea of travelling as a group of like-minded people with the goal of getting as much awesome skiing in as possible in ski slopes, powder conditions, soft snow, off-piste or whatever really interests your group.
Winter activities are deeply ingrained in Norwegian culture, which explains why there are as many rituals (and opinions) as there are groomed pistes.
This is a genuine and traditional Norwegian skiing experience in fantastic nature. A ski road trip crossing fjords and the Hardangervidda plateau will provide you with the optimal experience within ski culture and nordic mountain life style.
In addition, If you get lucky, you may see Northern lights from one of these places. It can often happen in high pressure weather system.

ROAD TRIP ALLURE

Along our road trip we drive besides many fjords, right on way from Bergen airport to Voss we drive along 3 fjords. From Voss to Sogndal we cross over Sognefjord, the largest and most well known fjord in Norway and the second longest in the world. Located in Sogn og Fjordane county in Western Norway, it stretches 205 kilometres (127 mi) inland. It has been included on UNESCO’s World Heritage lList of the world’s cultural and natural heritage of outstanding universal value.
To get there, we go through the Lærdal Tunnel (Norwegian: Lærdalstunnelen) is a 24.51km. long and connecting Lærdal to Aurland in Sogn og Fjordane. It is the longest road tunnel in the world succeeding the Swiss Gotthard Road Tunnel.
On or 3rd part of the tour we go over Hardangervidda a mountain plateau in central southern Norway. It is the largest plateau of its kind in Europe, with a cold year-round alpine climate, and one of Norway’s largestglaciers, Hardangerjøkulen, is situated there. On way back we cross over Hardangerfjord the fourth longest fjord in the world and second in Norway.
This ski road trip in the heart of Fjord Norway is powerfully and mysteriously attractive, a fascinante nature glamour.
