We have gathered the perfect ingredients for your next winter getaway. A cosy lodge, fantastic Snowy Mountains location, good food, local wines, a fun snowshoe adventure and a little bit of Yule time magic!
Celebrate the warmth of winter with Yule in the Snowy Mountains. On a selected night during your stay you'll enjoy a special Viking/ Christmas in July inspired Yule Feast. Festivities start from 5pm in the lounge with a complimentary glass of warm Viking mead (guests 18yrs and over) and nibbles by the fire. Just sit back and enjoy the festivities or take part in the fun and games. Try your hand at hnefatafl, uncover your path with a rune reading, have a snowball fight. At 7pm you'll feast in the dining hall with friends new and old, on a delicious 3 course Yule dinner. Yule, bringing friends and family together for a series of feasts, festivities and fun.
This is a beautiful, low impact way to be among the snowgums and explore Kosciuszko National Park. No experience is necessary, no lift tickets required! Your experienced guide will supply lightweight snowshoes and provide basic instructions before taking you out on a rewarding adventure. Your guide will know exactly where to take you given the snow and weather conditions of the day. Similar to hiking, snowshoeing is a fun activity that can be undertaken by almost all age groups and in almost all weather conditions.
Upgrade to a full day experience and you'll enjoy either a stop in a pub (own expense) or a winter picnic lunch. In the event of limited snow coverage, your snowshoe tour/s will be replaced by guided hike/s.
Get outdoors and explore the remote mountain village of Perisher Valley. Try tobogganing, have a snowball fight, make a snow angel, build a snowman or snow sculpture. Take the train to Blue Cow for a coffee or drink at the bar, with magnificent views. Enjoy a lazy lunch at one of the many pubs, cafes or on mountain venues (at own expense). Back indoors play table tennis, board games, relax and enjoy the scenery.
Experience the fun and vibe of holidaying in a traditional mountain lodge that oozes alpine spirit and warm mountain hospitality. You'll be staying in Valhalla (Nordic Heaven), a beautiful on snow alpine lodge. The lodge is surrounded by vibrant snow gums and is located within the remote snow village of Perisher Valley, in the heart of Kosciuszko National Park and the Snowy Mountains of NSW. Staying in a lodge is a very different experience to staying in a hotel or apartment. Valhalla Lodge features stunning mountain and valley views, a spacious lounge room with fire, a cosy dining room and a separate tv/games room with ping pong table. All guest bedrooms have an ensuite and either 1 king or 2 long single beds (twin). Your lodge host will make you feel right at home and you will quickly get to know your fellow guests by name with late afternoon drinks and nibbles by the fire, and relaxed social alpine dining.
