Welcome to Lillehammer


Lillehammer is best known for hosting the 1994 Winter Olympics, and the area does offer excellent opportunities for winter sports such as skiing and snowboarding at locations like Sjusjøen. This small town has other attractions however, including maihaugen, the largest open-air museum in Norway; the 860-year-old Garmo stave church; and the PS Skibladner paddle steamer. The picturesque main street of Lillehammer is not to be forgotten, lined with wooden houses, shops and restaurants.
