Close to one million passengers flew with Norwegian in December, which is an 18-percent increase compared to the same month the previous year.

The airline offers 80 weekly direct flights from the UK to eight destinations across Scandinavia. Norway is just two hours from the UK, with flight departures every day.

Flights from London Gatwick start from £28 one way, including taxes. Oslo Airport is within two hours of Hafjell/Lillehammer and three hours of Trysil and Hemsedal.

Hemsedal is set in the Hallingdal Valley and has established a reputation as Norway's premier ski and snowboard resort. It offers one of the highest snowfall levels in Europe and is snowsure from early November until May.

Trysil (1132m) is home to one of the largest ski areas in Norway, with 64 runs suited to all levels. Families are particularly fond of the resort for its children's areas and abundance of activities.

Hafjell/Lillehammer played host to the 1994 Winter Olympics. The ski centre of Hafjell is 25 minutes away from Lillehammer town by bus. Lillehammer offers a range of amenities and is lined with shops and award-winning restaurants.

Norwegian also flys from London to Stockholm in Sweden from £29 one way.
