Welcome to the mountains!

Under the powerful and majestic Hallingskarvet, with the sweeping Hardangervidda plains in the west, you will find the national park village, Geilo.

Located along the Bergen railway (going from Oslo – Bergen) and route RV7, Geilo is the perfect destination both summer and winter. Here you are close to two national parks; Hallingskarvet national park and Hardangervidda national park.

Geilo offers a wide range of activities, a variety of accommodations, shopping, quality restaurants and cosy cafes - and several local food producers.

Geilo made one of the first ski areas in Norway, after that time Geilo got more famous. With the high mountains and big woods, the opportunities for downhill skiing and cross country are perfect. Geilo got more than 500 km cross country trails, you will easily find your favorite. When it comes to downhill skiing there are 39 slopes, Geilo is a perfect for new learners for exploring the fun with downhill.

In the summer and fall Geilo is well known for its hiking and mountain biking opportunities, but also offers lots of other exciting activities like white water rafting, downhill biking, fishing, and horseback riding. The hiking season starts in the end of June and last until the snow falls - usually in October.

A sustainable destination

Many places follow sustainable principles, but being certified as a sustainable destination is an honour few qualify for. It takes years of work demonstrating their lasting commitment to providing the best possible experiences for their guests, while keeping the negative impact of tourism to a minimum. In addition, the destination must work to continually improve its business practices and relations with the local community, whilst safeguarding their natural and cultural assets, history and traditions.
