Winter activities 2016/2017


We offer week-programs for Christmas, Easter and winter holidays. We also offer our own skisafari program. Our guides Robert and Wenche bring guests with them on ski tours every day, except Saturdays. You can sign up for the trips one day in advance. If you wish to, you can book all the trips(6 days) as a package for NOK 1.500,-. We arrange horse sleigh rides and dog sleigh rides once a week, provided that there are enough people signed up for the activity; minimum 6-8 people.


Skiing: The ski tracks start just outside the hotel's entrance! You can ski both in the forest, or in open landscape. Go on your own, or join one of our guided trips. The network of prepared and marked tracks is all together about 120-140 km.


Snow shoeing: We have snow shoes for rental. Once a week, we arrange a guided snow shoe trip to the waterfalls in Myfallet. Snow shoeing is great for you who want to try out something else than skiing!


Skiing with small children in "pulk": The hotel has 3 "pulks" for rental. We recommend you to book these in advance.


Dog sleigh rides: Once a week the hotel rents dogs and sleighs, and goes for a half an hour ride. There has to be a minimum of 6-8 people. Longer rides can be booked in advance.


Horse sleigh rides: We offer rides once a week, or on requests when there is a minimum of 8 persons. We go for a ride in the forest, usually in the dark, with torches.


Walking: The same route that is used for horse sleigh rides, can also be uses for walking. This is a excellent for those of you who wish to walk, and at the same time get away from the traffic.
