New Year at Venabu

Our New Year's Eve celebrations have all the elements of a traditional Norwegian New Year including a New Year's Eve concert at the nearby mountain chapel and a special New Year's Eve dinner, not forgeting the King's speech.

Come and see in the New year with everyone here at Venabu!

Our ski guiding programme, snowshoeing, torch-lit sleigh rides and dogsledding all run throughout the Christmas and New Year period. 

We also offer yoga classes and massage on most days during this festive time: a perfect way to relax and unwind after a day's skiing.

Enjoy the pleasant atmosphere of Christmas and New Year at Venabu along with our delicious Norwegian food.
