Skiing Holidays

The Scandinavian people were pioneers in developing the early skis up to 5000 years ago. Despite their natural ability and their dominance on the winter Olympic podium, Scandinavia offers some of the most relaxed and friendly skiing experiences in the world. Whether you’re the off-piste thrill seeker, a downhiller or a cross-country novice, there’s something to suit all levels and ages in Norway, Finland, Sweden, Iceland and Canada. And the best part is that you’ll be rewarded with stunning scenery, long skiing seasons and stable snow conditions. And if you venture to the Arctic North, then the Northern Lights may also grace the night sky.
