Norway at OTDYKH/Leisure 2013

Winter is an exciting time to visit Norway. There are about 200 actively developing ski resorts with a wide range of alpine slopes and trails, modern lifts and various apres-ski opportunities for both adults and children. Snowboarding and extreme skiing are also very popular as well.

Norwegian ski resorts offer uncrowded slopes, no lift queues, a modern lift infrastructure, excellent slope maintenance and snow conditions, reasonable prices for ski passes. The Norwegian ski season is one of the longest in Europe, and typically lasts for six months.

Russian tourists like to combine active and cultural leisure. Norwegian ski resorts offer an exciting range of excursions, designed to give you the opportunity to experience the best that the region has to offer.

In the vast county of Finnmark you can experience skiing and snowboarding, dog-sledding, winter fishing, and hunting the northern lights.

Those who like sea cruises can explore the authentic Norway with Hurtigruten cruise lines. One of the most popular routes is the 11-day trip from Bergen to Kirkenes, covering 30 Norwegian towns. The Hurtigruten cruise connects several exciting winter locations along the Norwegian coast, such as Tromso, Kongsfjord and Kirkenes. These are all located above the Arctic Circle and offer excellent chances of spotting the northern lights.

Winter Norway is one of angling’s spiritual homes. Fishing in Norway has an indefinable but extra special quality to it. Off the coast of Northern Norway, where the tepid Gulf Stream meets cold, Arctic waters, the ocean teems with life. There is hardly a richer sea anywhere in the world, and the deeply indented coast provides shelter under most weather conditions.
