The oldest image of a skier in the world is from Rødøy on Helgeland. The first skiing competition in the world took place in Tromsø in 1843. Nowhere else in the world is the landscape better suited to skiing than in Northern Norway.

Even minor destinations in Northern Norway have finely prepared illuminated slopes so you can take some exercise even after darkness falls.
