Summer Skiing in NorwayStryn, Norway
Skiing in the middle of summer? No problem, if you're in Norway.
And while most think of snow and northern lights when it comes to Norway, its a great place to be at anytime of the year, not least the warmer months. The Nordic country recently announced it was re-opening its borders to the rest of the world too, just in time for the European summer.
Stryn is a municipality in central-west Norway, blessed with majestic mountains and typically dramatic Norwegian fjords. Take the unbelievably epic Loen Skylift up to the top of Mt. Hoven, a five minute trip which is surely the best way to spend five minutes outside of a bed or a disco.
From there, fly down the slopes to your hearts content - with the sun not setting until around 11.30pm, there's plenty of time to make the most of the 12km of lightly-dusted groomers.
- Almost unlimited time on the slopes. While there’s not quite the midnight sun here, it’s an 11.30pm sunset, which we reckon is plenty of time.
- Value for money on the day pass.
- Not freezing your nips off
- There’s plenty more beyond the slopes in Stryn – think fjords, glaciers, kayaking and hiking
- Your calves will be BURNING at the end of the day
