Newly groomed ski pistes, beautiful, powdered snow in the hills, rock-hard skating ice on the lakes. Travelling to Norway for this year's winter holidays? In the Stavanger region, you can find your winter's paradise.
The snowy landscapes are only a short travel time away
We don't always have snow in the lowlands, however, the distance to frolicking possibilities in the snow is short.
Brekko, for instance, is only 45 kilometres from Stavanger. The area is an ideal outdoor space for families with runs for sledging and cross-country ski pistes. You can borrow snow sliders for the kids on site. Also, you don't need to travel with all your skiing equipment, everything you need can be rented at frilager.no, just remember to do so two days in advance. There are facilities for cooking food over an open fire as well as benches and tables for picnicking.
Stavtjørn is another popular ski destination, some 80 kilometres from Stavanger with slalom facilities and family areas for both skiing and sledging.
