Children’s Winter Day

At the Children’s Winter Day, children of all ages can join in fun winter activities like ski jumping, cross country skiing, biathlon, sleigh rides, toboganning, snowshoe quiz and other snow games.

Every year Maihaugen arranges a super outside day for everyone who loves winter! Take the trip to Lillehammer, dress well and use the day to have fun. This is where the children get to try lots of fun winter activities.
You can also visit the lumberjack camp at the Open Air Museum, experience life in the town as it was during the 1930s, or life on the farm in the 1890s.  

Have a lovely time eating waffles, sausages and hot blackcurrant toddy. We have toboggans, kick sledges and snow sliders for hire.

You can also bring your own equipment.

Children’s Winter Day for 2016 is held on 7 February. A full programme will be published.
