Discover Geilo in summer.

Have fun – together!

The ski resort of Geilo, centrally located between east and west, is among the largest and most versatile in the country.

With a total of 45 slopes, both beginners and advanced skiers will find plenty of excellent skiing opportunities here.

Skilled ski instructors are happy to teach you how to master an elegant turn.

The Hallingskarvet ski resort is great for daredevils who like to ski around trees and enjoy pristine powder.

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 trekking, dog 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 trysnowmobiling!

Feed animals at Langedrag Nature Park!

Choose between a day visit or an overnight stay, all year round. You can explore the park on your own or with a guide.

Nothing beats the adrenaline rush you get from ice bathing!

By dipping your body into ice cold water you receive plenty of benefits, like improved sleep and reduced stress.  

Geilo is centrally located between Bergen and Oslo. The easiest way to get here is by train. Lucky for you, the Bergen Line is considered one of the world’s most beautiful train rides!

At an elevation of 1,222 metres, the highest point on the line, lies …

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.

The good news is that you can taste them, too!

Hallingstuene is another great place to experience the local culinary culture.

With rose-painting decorating on the walls and a traditional interior, this red timber restaurant is an old heart beating with local history.

Winter in Geilo = an exciting, memorable, & romantic adventure!
