Families & Childcare by skiNorway

the family skiing experts

From living, working and raising a family in Norwegian ski resorts, our skiNorway experts have first-hand experience of just how welcoming and family friendly Norway is. Whether you are a family new to the slopes or have been skiing together long enough for the children to overtake you, we believe that Norway is the epitome of family skiing.

Complimentary Childcare

At skiNorway we understand all the elements of a fantastic family skiing holiday, which is why we’re pleased to once again offer complimentary childcare services in Trysil during the February half term and Easter school holidays. Find out more. As well as our exclusive childcare, most resorts offer excellent childcare facilities on and off the slopes for a very reasonable price.

Your Ski Schools

Ski instructors in Norway are passionate about skiing and are fluent in English, allowing them to really communicate the details and even more importantly, the enjoyment. Our exclusive ski schools are designed with families in mind, taught by experienced instructors of appropriate ability and experience for each group and are all synchronised for ultimate ease and peace of mind. Available in February half term and Easter school holidays.

Your Accommodation

Arguably one of the most important aspects of your skiing holiday, our hand-picked accommodation has been selected to make your family holiday as easy as possible. From ski-in/ski-out locations to in-house play rooms, bowling and swimming. Whatever you’re after and whatever type of family you are, we have something for you, see below for our favourites or speak to us today for our recommendations.

Your Slopes

Skiing in Norway is a family orientated institution and all our ski resorts have fantastic beginners areas with easy access, wide, open slopes and careful monitoring for safe skiing all around. Once your little ones have outgrown the beginners area they will find plenty to do to keep even the keenest skier entertained. As well as graded snow parks you will find time trials, slalom courses and ski-cross courses throughout the resorts.

Your Activities

With skiNorway, family fun doesn’t end on the slopes. As well as your fantastic accommodation facilities there is a great choice of additional activities, from exclusive husky sledding trips, to star gazing and horse sleigh rides. See individual resort pages for a full list of what's available.

Our favourites

Call us biased but we have our favourite family friendly destinations.

For the family that just doesn’t stop we recommend the Radisson Blu Resort Hotel Trysil. This accommodation has a choice of hotel rooms and apartments and is ski-in ski-out right onto one of the main beginner areas. There is a fabulous family orientated swimming pool with climbing wall and surf pool, as well as a bowling alley, arcade and a play area in sight of one of the bars. After a long day on the slopes why not treat your youngest to a pizza or grab a burger in the authentic diner, before booking our skiNorway babysitters and enjoying the cuisine in the a la carte restaurant.

For the purest skiing family we recommend the Mountain Resort Hotel & Residences. This sophisticated accommodation has a choice of hotel rooms and apartments and is ski-in ski-out right into the heart of the ski area. To help you get on the slopes as fast as possible your ski rental is right in the hotel, and you can ski right to the door of the ski lockers with heated boot storage. There is a playroom and arcade, as well as a fantastic spa with indoor and outdoor pool for when you fancy an afternoon off. There is live music on in the après bar at least once a week, as well as an a la carte restaurant if you fancy celebrating a fantastic holiday.
