  • Skigaarden is building fifteen new rental apartments at the heart of Hemsedal Ski Centre with stunning views of the valley and the adjacent ski slopes. Extras such as bed linen, towels and final cleaning are included in the price, and if you book at Storgaarden 1 or 2, the price also includes breakfast and dinner of the day at the Skigaarden restaurant.
