Skiing and Adventure Holidays in Gaustablikk, Norway

All year round exhilaration guaranteed.

Gaustablikk is known throughout Norway as the first resort to open its slopes each winter so with following an organised transfer from the airport, it’s no surprise we chose it as our European skiing holiday centre. The training ground for many Olympic skiers, it’s at the foot of Gaustatoppen, Southern Norway’s highest mountain - and that also makes it ideal for family and individual adventure holidays all year round, including ice climbing, rock climbing, canyoning, rappell and MTB.

A great place to Ski

With 13 lifts, and over 29km of piste spread over 129 acres, Gaustablikk has enough variety to keep the most experienced and intermediate skiers and boarders entertained and to let learners find their feet. The lifts and runs starts right in the resort, so skiing home is a real possibility – and walking in ski-boots kept to a minimum.

For those who like to take their skiing a little off the beaten track, the region’s ideal for Cross Country and Randonnée (this is Telemark after all) and there’s ample opportunity to enjoy the superb off-piste conditions – the snow’s brilliant and it’s said you can see a sixth of all Norway through the clear Scandinavian air.

All you need to Ski

Gaustablikk Ski centre is not only the place to find or hire any equipment you need - whatever way you enjoy the snow - it’s also the perfect place to find expert help and detailed local knowledge. Gaustatoppen is a big mountain, the locals know every inch of it and are always keen to help you enjoy it to the full.

In the Hills

Feeling adventurous? Then there’s rock climbing, from routes that challenge the v.v. experienced to courses that give complete novices a gentle introduction. There’s canyoning, probably the most exhilarating way to experience mountain streams ever invented, and there’s walking, hiking and mountain biking.

So whether you live on adrenaline and adventure, or seek peace and tranquillity, head for the hills around Gaustablikk.

Après everything

When the hard day’s skiing’s done, there’s still plenty more to keep you occupied. A small and friendly resort, activities after dark centre round the Gaustablikk High Mountain Hotel with its indoor pool, restaurant, bar, solarium and steam room. Ideal for families it’s just the place to relax and make sure you’re ready to hit the slopes or climb the mountain again the next morning.
