Renting a Holiday Ski Chalet in Norway

Apr 4, 2008
Norway is a beautiful country with the numbers of tourists visiting increasing every year. Many now choose to stay in some of the picturesque holiday homes that are now available to rent from their owners. Over the last few years, the notion of Norway just being a winter holiday destination has been dispelled. It is still home to some fabulous ski chalets and self catering apartments as well as some quaint holiday farmhouses.

In the summer months temperatures can reach as the 30's for many weeks and there are plenty of resorts where you can soak up the sun on quiet beautiful beaches. It is now possible to rent self catering cottages during the summer months. For lovers of hiking and the outdoor lifestyle, holiday makers can rent self catering farmhouses. Families on vacation can use these holiday homes to explore the forests and mountains. By staying in self catering accommodation holiday makers are able to sample the magnificent nature and open spaces of this beautiful country.

Norway is a great family holiday destination for tourists staying in holiday homes. It is a country full of a diverse range of scenery and in winter months can offer some of the best skiing and winter sports in Europe. There are a great selection of ski chalets and log cabins available for rental in the winter months. These offer the holiday maker a feeling of freedom and independence with the ski slopes within walking distance.

Norway is a beautiful country of mountains, fjords and glaciers. It has long summer days, laid back cities and unspoiled fishing villages. It is a country with an abundance of historic sites. Many tourists like to stay in small farmhouses and visit some of the restored Viking ships and medieval stave churches. It is a country full of wonders and has managed to retain much of its natural charm. It occupies over 325,000 square kilometers and sits on the western edge of the Scandinavian Peninsula. It sits next to Sweden, Finland and Russia.

Norway is a popular winter holiday destination with many families going there to ski and snow board. It is also popular with cross country skiers and is an ideal holiday destination for skiers of all abilities. Some families choose to stay in log cabins or ski chalets and others are now taking advantage of the self catering apartments that are now available in many of the popular ski resorts.

Lovers of the outdoor lifestyle come to Norway to experience the fantastic views and clean fresh air with many staying in some of the holiday farmhouses that are available to rent. They use them as a base to explore the stunning scenery and feel at one with nature.
