Weekend getaway to Buskerud – from resorts to urban living

There are no other counties in Norway that can entice ski-lovers which matches the excellence of Buskerudbut a holiday in Buskerud can also offer intimate urban living. 

If you love to ski, there’s a good chance that you’ve already visited Buskerud. This is the county with the highest number of major ski resorts in Norway. Hemsedal and Geilo are two of the largest ski resorts in our country, so pack your ski equipment if you are visiting during the winter. Cities like Drammen and Kongsberg are summer idylls located on the banks of the river.

The ski resorts of Hemsedal-Skistar, Geilo Skisenter (Geilo Ski Centre) and Norefjell Skisenter (Norefjell Ski Centre) are well-known resorts in Buskerud, attracting crowds of Norwegians in winter, So, if skiing is one of your passions, spend a few days in Hemsedal or Geilo. If you prefer to not to put on skis, you can go hiking through the beautiful scenery instead.

Hardangervidda is the largest mountain plateau in Northern Europe and is an excellent area to visit. Den Norske Turistforening (The Norwegian Trekking Association) own many huts in Hardangervidda nasjonalpark (Hardangervidda National Park) that you can take advantage of—perfect if you want to go on longer trips.

If you like being by the water and are planning a summer trip, the southern area of Buskerud is the place for you. Drammen has really blossomed in recent decades and today is one of the most truly beautiful cities in Norway. Visit Drammen and enjoy lazy days by the river or visit the fantastic Drammensbadet (Drammen Pool) and explore all the cultural offerings the city has to offer.

Learn more about the Norwegian mining industry during a visit to the Norsk Bergverksmuseum (Norwegian Mining Museum) in Kongsberg. The museum is interesting in itself but the highlight is naturally a guided tour through one of the old silver mines. You will be taken far into the mine, so if you have a tendency towards claustrophobia, this is probably not for you!

Buskerud is the destination for those passionate about skiing. There aren’t many who cannot handle a day on the slopes followed by a good atmosphere and après ski when the lifts close. Although the best time to visit Buskerud is in winter, Hardangervidda is especially well suited to hiking in summer. If you are travelling with children, Bjørneparken in Flå is an experience that the children will remember for a long time!
