Where would you suggest staying about 4 hours (or less) west of Oslo, that would provide both outdoor (thinking snow shoeing without hiring a guide) and indoor (museums, etc.) options? Like the idea of a smaller town that can provide shopping/groceries/museums/and also outdoor options. Not leaning towards a ski resort, for we are not downhill skiers. Going mid/end of March. Would like to consider a place where we can cook meals ourselves too. And do we need to be concerned about avalanche risk, especially if driving ourselves?
OR should we consider going East or North of Oslo?
