Want a change from the Alps? Perhaps not as well-known as the traditional resorts in the Alps, Scandinavia is slowly increasing in popularity as a destination for skiers. Home to more gold medals at the Winter Olympics than any other nation, skiing in Norway is a way of life. Compared to the Alps, the guarantee of snow is much higher. The ski slopes tend to be wide, scenic and quiet with a reliable snow cover, making it excellent for young families to professionals. If you are not an avid skier, the mountains offer non-skiers a wide range of activites, such as ice-rally driving, dog sledding and Nordic skiing. Expect serious comfort when you come off the slopes, with traditional log cabins with warming wood fires, saunas and spas.
