Norwegian Ski Resorts: Hafjell, Kvitfjell and Skeikampen

HAFJELL 

Hafjell is the third largest ski resort in Norway with exciting landscapes: wide and even tracks are sometimes so steep, that you may be sure: it is a real "black level"! Still, you will find there green slopes, and more difficult – blue and red – serpentines in the forest.

Anyway, you will surely find something that suits particularly you among 30 tracks 39 km long. Try to go down a bob-sled chute at the speed of 120 km per hour or participate in a quad bike race with your friends! The tracks are well maintained and illuminated. The youngest guests of Hafjell also have a lot to do!
