Oslo & Southern Norway

As snow falls and winter sets in, many would think this the time to stay indoors and snuggle up to the cosy fire. However, with nights illuminated by the swirls of the Northern Lights and stellar landscapes that offer a myriad of winter activities, Norway becomes the ideal family destination for an active winter. Staying in the middle of a frozen wonderland, you and your family can spend your days skiing, husky sledding and ice fishing before returning in the evenings to defrost in the hot tubs, dine on delicious Norwegian cuisine and fall asleep in front of wood stoves, wrapped up in reindeer covers.
Perfect forThose looking for a truly authentic Norwegian escape filled with fabulous family activities.
In the knowReading like an Astrid Lindgren novel (Pippi Longstocking author), the Swedish Family Room is a great choice for a family of 4 with its blue and white chequered décor, whitewashed floorboards and fun nursery – feels just like Villa Villekulla.

5 nightsHEGGENES

Norway, meaning the ‘path to the North’, turns into a snow-clad paradise in winter and flying into Oslo, you’ll drive to its heartland for five nights of fairytale-like accommodation, Nordic culture and sights to last a lifetime. Squeezed between the Heggefjord and mountainous Jotunheimen National Park, Herangtunet will be your home for the duration and provides the perfect balance between relaxation and adventure.

Pull on some snowshoes and travel cross country through the bleached scenery, pet the inexhaustible husky dogs before they slid you over lakes, through forests and over open plains or get into the festive spirit and take a horse-drawn sleigh ride complete with jingle bells and reindeer skins. Shake off the cobwebs in the morning with a snowball fight and then drive to the nearby national park to stand beneath Norway’s highest mountains, Galhopiggen. With hundreds of hiking routes, ravine-like valleys with deep lakes and 60 glaciers, a trip to Jotunheimen National Park is a must whether on foot or by taking a scenic helicopter flight over its snowy peaks – a trip your kids will never forget.
