For a winter adventure, the Telemark ski experience package has all you could wish for. The Gaustablikk Høyfjellshotell provides the perfect stay for the whole family in between ski trips.
If you know anything about skiing history, then you’ll have heard of Telemark. It was here in the 1800s that Sondre Nordheim, the man known as “the father of modern skiing”, left his ski tracks in the landscape. Telemark remains a popular ski destination with excellent ski resorts.
One of these is Gaustablikk at the foot of Gaustatoppen, the highest mountain in Southern Norway. This is a proper ski centre located 960 metres above sea level and is very popular with families. There are 80 km of cross-country skiing trails, 3 km of which are floodlit and 31.5 km of downhill slopes (17 green runs, 2 blue, 9 red and 5 black). For young people and those who are young at heart, there is also a toboggan hill, snowboard park and ski school.
A place where you can sleep, eat and relax in between all this activity is essential. Gaustablikk Høyfjellshotell is therefore the perfect option. Only a short ski-trip from the hotel to all the runs, the bright, recently-renovated rooms come with an en-suite bathroom and flat screen TV with 16 channels. For those with children, most rooms also have a double sofa bed. The hotel has a restaurant/cafe, bar, swimming pool and breathtaking views of Gaustatoppen.
* A ski lift pass is included in the price.
