Hafjell Alpine Resort is one of the most popular ski resorts in Norway, offering both family friendly skiing as well as something for those seeking a little more action. Located just 15 minutes north of Lillehammer, Hafjell is one of Norway’s most accessible ski destinations.
In the Summer/fall of 1988 the alpine center was built underpin the seriousness of Lillehammer’s bid to host the 17th Winter Olympic Games. On the 15th September 1988 this endeavor paid off as news came in that the bid had been successful. The 1994 winter Olympics would be hosted by Lillehammer! Building on this achievement, Hafjell has grown to become Norway’s third largest ski resort.
