Overview - apartment description - Forest Cabins description

Picture-perfect log cabins tucked in amongst the trees - each with its own private sauna. If you want to feel you’re properly in Norway then these are absolutely fantastic. We’ve a range of sizes - some sleeping up to 12 people - but they are such great value that even if you are a small family they won’t break the bank. Although eating out in restaurants isn’t cheap the supermarkets are great value (not too dissimilar from the UK) and we’ll even include a grocery pack to start you off. Each of the cabins are spacious with large lounge areas to put your feet up in after skiing, plus full kitchens to cook up a storm for dinner. You’re never far away from the slopes and ski school which are an easy walk from all the cabins, and in the evenings you’ll not want to leave your cosy home.
