But skiing is more than just going flying down the slopes.

Strap on a pair of cross country skis to explore more of Geilo! Well-groomed trails head in every direction, and you’ll have no trouble finding a route that suits your level.

The wonders of snow are not limited to skiing, however. How about going on a guided fat bike adventure?

The extra-wide (or “fat” if you will) tires give you added grip and make the experience similar to regular mountain biking – but with an added element of newness and fun.

But the surest way to have an absolute blast in the snow is to try sledging at Dagali Fjellpark.

Simply ride the ski lift back to the top to fly down one more time. Sounds like fun, doesn’t it?

The area is a treasure trove of fun activities for everyone – especially in the winter.

How about trying something you might never have done before, like snowshoe trekkingdog sledding or a horse-drawn sleigh ride?

Drive for 25 minutes and you'll reach Dagali. With so much to do, it's no wonder Dagali is called Aktivitetsbygda (The activity village). Here, you can also try snowmobiling!

Finse 1222, a hotel by Finse station that can only be reached by train or foot.

Finse is a place of pure bliss, with breathtaking views of the surrounding wilderness, which are enhanced by the frosty grip of winter, but are otherworldly year-round.

The area is also a paradise for snowkiting!

Geilo has achieved the certification Sustainable Destination. Although this does not mean that the destination is completely sustainable, it does mean that it has made a commitment to work systematically to reduce the negative effects of tourism, while strengthening its positive ripple effects.

For a culinary delight, make sure to stop by Hol, Geilo’s neighbouring “cheese village”.

Browse a mouthwatering variety of award-winning cheeses and other local products at Hol Ysteri.
