Welcome to the Olympic Park this summer!


The Olympic Park has received corona support

On Friday 19 March 2021 came the phone call we have been waiting for a long time. The government has allocated NOK 10 million to the Olympic Park as a one-time grant due to our financial loss as a result of the pandemic.

Ever since the closure in March 2020, the Olympic Park has suffered major financial losses as a result of the corona pandemic. We applied for support for the first time in the summer of 2020, but were not granted support as we are municipally owned.

Abid Raja to NRK:

- The park is of great national importance and interest. It is due to the very special position they hold that the ministry exceptionally grants this one-off grant.As they are publicly owned, this has been a very difficult nut to crack legally, says Raja.

We would like to thank the government and everyone who has worked to achieve this. This has been incredibly important for the future of the Olympic Park.

Now we look ahead and look forward to more magical moments in the Olympic Park!


Join and create history!

For the World Cup in snow sports for pair athletes, which will be held in Lillehammer and Hafjell in February 2021, the world's best in alpine skiing, cross-country skiing, biathlon and snowboarding will gather for the first time for a joint world championship. Now we are looking for volunteers who want to be part of creating history!

Lillehammer is no stranger to arranging major sporting events. The city has hosted the 1994 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, the 2016 Youth Olympics as well as several X-games, the World Para Snow Sports and the FIS World Cup.

The exercises in cross-country skiing and biathlon will be held at Lillehammer, more specifically the Birkebeineren ski stadium, while the exercises for alpine and snowboarding will take place 15 km away, in Hafjell.

A total of 82 medals will be awarded during the two-week competition. 31 medals will be awarded in alpine skiing, 18 in biathlon, 20 in cross-country skiing and 13 in snowboarding.

The biggest stars from the four sports, including Paralympic champions and world champions, will compete for gold at Lillehammer 2021. A total of around 750 participants are expected, this includes 200 Nordic skiers, 120 alpinists and 60 snowboarders.

Minister of Culture and Gender Equality Abid Raja visits the Olympic Park
