Skiing in Scandinavia

Norway is a nation that has engaged in winter pastimes for thousands of years and is often considered the home of ski. For Norwegians outdoor activity and embracing the elements is part of their cultural identity. Neighbouring Sweden largely shares these traits and for Swedes the focus is firmly on family fun.

We’re delighted to be partnering with ski experts, skiScandinavia adding dedicated skiing itineraries to our comprehensive collection of winter holidays. Perfectly complementing our Nordic heritage, the team at skiScandinavia combine passion and knowledge to provide first-class ski breaks in Norway and Sweden ideally suited to families.

The Resorts

Our featured itineraries are based in two of the most accessible resorts in Europe, Trysil in Norway and Kläppen in Sweden. Both utilise newly built and state-of-the-art Scandinavian Mountains Airport ensuring quick and convenient access to the slopes.


Bright and spacious Scandinavian style characterises the hotels and apartments available at both resorts. Hand-picked by the skiScandinavia experts, there is a wide choice of options from luxury hotel rooms to 2- or 3-bedroom apartments. Offering comfort and convenience in equal measure, all are ski-in/ski-out with excellent facilities including restaurants. The properties in Norway feature swimming pools and spa facilities.
