CROSS COUNTRY SKIING

Dalseter is situated in the Peer Gynt Ski Region, which includes the popular winter resorts Espedalen, Fefor, Gålå, Skeikampen and Kvitfjell - is one of the ski destinations in Norway with the longest traditions. The area is located in the high mountains 800-1500 metres above sea level, west of the Gudbrandsdalen valley and just one hour´s drive north of Lillehammer. The area offers magnificent panoramic views, impressive sunsets, a stable climate and very reliable snow conditions.

There are long and short trails for all levels of skiing proficiency - tracks for family-friendly short trips, tracks passing through sheltered forest terrain and also tracks up in the high mountains, offering spectacular views of the national parks Rondane and Jotunheimen.

Along the tracks at several sites there are small huts, where you can stop to enjoy your lunch-pack and have something warm to drink.

DALSETER SKI LIFT

Dalseter has a ski hill straight outside the hotel. The hill is about 750 meter long, with a height difference of 140 meter from top to bottom.

The hill is what we call a ‘family slope’, which means it is well suited for those who haven’t done much downhill skiing or snowboarding before.

DALSETER SKILIFT is a Pomalift. ("Button lift")
