Preparing your trip to Lillehammer: advices & hints - things to do and to obey

1. Lillehammer does not have its own airport so the easiest way to get here is through Oslo. The capital is connected to the city by regular rail and bus services.
2. The main form of public transport in the city is the bus. It'd be a good idea for active tourists to rent a car so that they can easily reach entertainment centers and attractions located in the vicinity.
3. Thrifty tourists should take into account that taxi services are quite expensive. Even if the trip lasts no more than five minutes, you will have to pay about 20 euros.
4. Lillehammer's main railway station can be found in the city center. Every day, trains depart from here to surrounding towns. The station offers a great tourist center.
5. Even in wintertime, the weather is quite comfortable for walking and outdoor activities. At the height of winter, the average air temperature is -5 °C - ideal for skiing and other winter sports. Copyright
6. Tourists who are planning to visit Lillehammer in summer should take into account that the summer months are the rainiest. However, long rains are rare so shouldn't affect your plans for vacation.
7. To observe the rules of local etiquette, one should refrain from being too emotional in public. It is not customary here to talk and laugh loudly, as well as use gestures excessively.
8. The attitude to cleanliness in the streets and parks is very serious. If there is no specially designed garbage can nearby, then all the trash must be taken with you and thrown into a special container later.
9. Young people who are fond of nightclubs and bars should be ready to present a valid passport. Nightclubs have strict rules regarding the age of visitors.
10. In Lillehammer, smoking is prohibited in absolutely all public places, including hotels and streets. Be sure to pay attention to special warning signs.
11. Restrictions on the sale of alcohol are also quite strict. You can buy it only in specialized stores and only at certain hours. On Sundays, the sale of alcohol is prohibited.
12. Fans of drinks in cans should remember about the city's environmental program aimed at their collection and recycling. Many grocery stores pay back 1-5 crowns for returned cans.
13. During walks in parks and nature reserves, you can only move along specially laid paths. Some parks have special restriction signs warning that one cannot enter a certain territory.
14. Those who wish to go fishing on the lake must purchase a special license, as well as pay a fee. All necessary documents can be issued in one of the tourist centers.
15. Most locals go to bed pretty early. Heavy fines are provided for making noise in the streets after 9:00 pm.

On some routes, the slope is almost vertical. Every year a stage of the downhill world cup takes place on the most difficult track in Norway. And if there are no competitions in Kvitfjell, the slopes are also accessible to amateur athletes. However, it is not recommended to ski on this slope without long preparation. … Read further
