This is the traditional heart of the country, with brightly painted houses and ancient wooden churches. The landscape is dramatic and full of contrasts from spectacular gorges and snow-capped peaks to pretty fells and valleys that extend as far as the eye can see. It is far enough north to have a good chance of seeing the Northern Lights too, especially in December and January, and throughout the winter there are spectacular sunrises and sunsets.
This is one of our most popular cross country skiing holidays with Headwater guests returning year after year. It is based in central Norway, on the edge of the Rondane National Park, looking down on the Gudbransdalen Valley, just north of Lillehammer. It has always been traditional to travel on skis here and so it is perfect for cross country skiing and snowshoeing.
Very friendly, family-run hotel offering complete escapism! Super value, totally reliable snow, great discounts for children in school holidays. Good chance of seeing the Northern Lights too, especially in December and January.
