Christmas holiday

Celebrate a traditional Christmas in Norway. Hafjell is one of the major Norwegian alpine ski resorts with the Torch man as the landmark. Lillehammer region in Christmas time is the perfect venue to relax and enjoy quality time with your family and friends.

Christmas celebration in Norway is rich in traditions, and is dedicated to family and friends, parties and good food. For most people, the celebration of Christmas Eve on 24 December is the most important event. At Hafjell Hotel we celebrate Christmas Eve together with visitors from all over Europe.
