Ski Safari is living up to its name and offering a week in Norway taking in the ski resorts of Hafjell and Kvitfjell.


The two resorts are separated by a 40-minute drive and share a lift pass.

It could hardly be easier.

They are part of the stable of resorts offered by Norway-Home of Skiing and both hosted events in the 1994 Lillehammer Olympics.

Hafjell offers ski terrain for all abilities where visitors are reminded of the resort's rich history by the Fakkelmannen, an Olympian carved into the forest in the Gudbrandsdalen Valley.

The resort retains the competitive Olympic spirit, playing host to the World Cup tour and the X-Games whilst remaining welcoming to beginners with many gentle, tree-lined pistes.

"One of Norway's largest ski areas, the Olympic resort of Hafjell has skiing for all levels and yet is relatively undiscovered and uncrowded," said Andy Hemingway from Ski Safari.

"Whether you're advanced or a complete beginner, there's a tree-lined run for you. Plus there's a fantastic range of non-ski activities too."















Kvitfjell is one of the most snow sure resorts in Norway, consistently being one of the first to open and the last to close.

A variety of wide, open groomers and rolling tree-lined descents make Kvitfjell a fantastic resort for families and intermediates whilst the Olympiabakken downhill course presents a challenge to the most experienced.


Twinning these resorts provides a varied ski area with more than 80 kms for all levels of skier.

And if you have the time a visit to the Olympic ski jump is well worth a visit.
