Norefjell is a good all-round ski resort, located an hour and twenty minutes from the capital city of Oslo. There is a variety of terrains suitable for all levels of expertise, well-prepared cross-country trails, and exhilarating off-piste routes. Norefjell is surrounded by majestic mountain peaks and is only fifteen minutes away from scenic Lake Kroderen.
The resort is characterized by attractive, alpine-style accommodation, friendly people and a laid-back atmosphere. The village is situated amidst towering mountain peaks and is blessed with panoramic views of the surrounding countryside and Lake Kroderen.
There are a total of twenty-three ski slopes at Norefjell, spread over twenty-four kilometers in the resort. Of these, four are green, nine are blue, seven are red pistes, and three are black slopes. Access to the slopes is gained by via a system of eleven lifts. The longest downhill run is a very pleasant six kilometers, but if you’re hungry for longer distances, there are one hundred and twenty kilometers of marked cross-country trails, and an unlimited number of off-piste trails covering mountains and woodlands.
The main focus at Norefjell is skiing, but the ski resort also offers other exciting activities. These include mono-skiing, sleigh rides, indoor swimming, saunas, snowshoe hikes and dog teams. Additionally, Norefjell has a handful of restaurants, cafes, bars and discos to provide après-ski entertainment.
The ski resort is well-equipped with visitor amenities, including a grocery shop, childcare facilities and a service station. There is a myriad of accommodation options at Norefjell, from first- class hotels to mountain cabins. Slope-side and lake view accommodation is available.
Norefjell is located within close proximity to the scenic attraction of Lake Kroderen, and the historical attraction of Ringnes Gard, one of Norway’s oldest freehold farms. Both are worth visiting in your time off from the slopes.
The winter season at Norefjell extends from November to the beginning of May. The most convenient means of reaching the ski resort is by catching a flight to Oslo and either catching a bus or hiring a car to get to Norefjell.
