Winter Activities 

Included in the Skjærhaug Resort experience, you can borrow:

  • Snow shoes: The surrounding nature offers several hiking opportunities. The hikes length and difficulty is easily adapted to your experience level and wish. 
  • “Snow mattress sled”: These  small matresses that are super slippery for downhill sliding in the snow makes great fun in a nearby slope.
  • “Kick-sled” is a stand-up sledge-like device which allows for two persons – one sitting down, and one standing – to make their way along snowy, icy roads in a fun and easy way. More ice allows for more speed, hence more fun. About 3 km of private road in the woods makes the perfect conditions for this activity!
  • Last but not least… the silence and quiet of the resort is of course included, and without doubt one of our recommended favourites.
