Little Scandinavian goes on holiday

by Scandinavian mum

During half term the Scandinavian Mum, the Scandinavian Dad and their two Little Scandinavians are off on holiday. And the trip goes (of course!?) to Scandinavia!

We will be going to a lovely ski resort in Norway called Norefjell (North mountain). Norefjell with its more than 3.900 feet has a long history with tourism and down hill skiing, hosting the Winter Olympics in 1952. With continues development it’s today one of the most modern ski resorts in Norway.

The flight time from London to Oslo is about 2 hours. Then Norefjell is situated one hours car journey outside Oslo.
The resort we will be staying at has “ski in ski out”, great cross country slopes starting on your mountain lodge’s doorstep, there is an ice rink, there is SPA, outdoor jacuzzi and a gym for the adults and swimming pools for the children and there is a 52 feet tall indoor climbing wall. You can choose from several nice restaurants. The mountain lodge built only last year has all the facilities you would expect and is offering accommodation with a modern yet cozy interior with fire place etc. And what do you think the children are most excited about?
“Yeah! We get to sleep in a bunk bed!”
