You might remember that in August I went on a week long holiday to Norway to enjoy spectacular views of the Fjords. Norway is a beautiful country and we are eager to return however this time we are looking at enjoying a holiday in the Winter season for a family snow break. I am collaborating with Inntravel to introduce their new Snow holidays in Norway and to bring a fantastic giveaway to the London Telegraph Ski and Snowboard show.
Inntravel have a lovely selection of slow holidays and hotels to choose from and Norway is a beautiful country. You won’t be disappointed. Inntravel have also combined their holiday breaks with things like whale watching tours, seeing the northern lights and snow walks. I think this is fantastic as we would love the chance to watch whales and experience even more of Norway. Tromso is high up on my list of places to visit so this Northern Lights Break looks fantastic.
We are yet to enjoy our family snow adventure but I’ve been looking at what to pack and what to leave behind so that we can make the most out of our trip. The great thing about snow holidays is that they usually have hire shops for the bigger equipment so if you’re not a pro snowboarder or this is your first ski adventure then you really don’t need to go all out and pack everything. Plus, there is so much more to a snow holiday than sliding down mountain peaks.
Some parts of Norway are within the Arctic Circle so be prepared for the cold. We always think packing layers of clothing is best. There are so many fantastic snow suits for every member of the family and I recommend taking a couple if you’re traveling for at least a week, however remember these can be pretty bulky. Protective wear for your eyes is also a must. A lot of Ski resorts will hire out skis, snowboards, snowshoes and toboggans for the family. You can take your own of course but if you do these will require extra insurance and do consider how they’ll be packed for the flight or transport over. When you’re walking you’ll need warm and comfortable snow boots or shoes, plenty of socks and thick gloves. This will let you get the most out of your family snow adventure without feeling the cold too much!
I am so excited about the idea of us going on a real snow holiday because I would absolutely love to snowboard. I’ve been looking at resorts that are great for beginners or that have a ski and snowboard school attached so I can learn the basics. Being able to go and see the beautiful Northern Lights would just make the trip and I would absolutely love the chance to go whale watching. Especially for Orcas. I was really hoping to see some when we last went to Norway so this is still firmly on my list of things to do.
