Lillehammer, host to the Winter Olympic games in 1994, is Norway's oldest winter sports resort. The city provides a combination of long-standing traditions, modern activities and excellent standards. The architecture and scenery are stunning and Lillehammer is a true winter wonderland.
One of the biggest advantages of Lillehammer is that you know there will be snow, no matter what the conditions are like elsewhere the low temperatures throughout the winter ensure that the resort has snow.
The bobsleigh is an amazing experience, at the Olympic Bobsleigh track you can ride in a professional ice bob that seats 3 passengers and reaches speeds of up to an incredible 120km/h, or for the slightly less adventurous you can ride in a bobraft which is a rubber bobsleigh with wooden runners that seats 5 passengers per run and reaches speeds of 70-80km/h. All the bobs are steered by autohorised pilots.close to the olympic ski jump is the toboggan track - you are towed up the hill on your lightweight aluminium toboggan on a button lift and then have an exhilarating run down the hill at some speed, learning to steer as you go - excellent fun and highly recommended for all.
lillehammer offers far more than the average ski resort, and you would certainly miss out if you didn't take advantage of all that it has to offer. >
