    2. Single supplement. NB. In line with Norwegian hotel regulations, a single supplement is charged for single occupancy of any accommodation. This may seem strange to our UK clients, but this is how it is in Norway. The single supplement is: £18pppn.
    3. Panorama rooms (south facing) are available for a supplement of £14pppn.
  • Child's Discount. A child's discount on the hotel fee is applicable for a child, or children, staying in a double room with two full fee paying adults, or one child sharing a single room with one full fee paying adult. This discount is applied on the following scale:
    • 1 child 0-12 years - free
    • Children 0-4 years without own bed - free
    • Children 0-4 years with own bed/cot - 75% discount
    • Children 5-15 years - 50% discount
    • Children 16-17 years - 25% discount.
  • The ski rental charge is included in the overall cost of the holiday, and will be itemised on your hotel bill. It covers the cost of one set of Nordic skis, poles and boots (or Telemark equivalent) only. The rental of additional sets of equipment will incur an extra charge.
  • Ski lift pass for Telemark skiing. The price of the lift pass for the Telemark skiing course is not included in the overall cost of the holiday/course.
