Geilo is the center in the municipality of Hol, in the valley of Hallingdal, with around 2.300 inhabitants. The center of the town lies at 800 meters above sea level, and its highest point is 1178 meters above sea level. The city is a certified Substainable Destination, not strange with two National Parcs as neighours. The first one is the famous Hardangervidda, the other one is the big mountain ridge Hallingskarvet.

The Bergen Line facilitated Geilo's development as the first skiing resort in the country, and it is still one of the largest. It is also famous for having some of the most luxurious and expensive holiday cabins in Norway.

In Geilo, it's a short way between skiing and other winter activities, both for the adventurous and for families. You can choose from a wide range off activities such as guided snowshoe- and fatbike tours, dog sledding and horseback riding, ice bating, ice fishing and ice skating but also different kind of motorsports and toboggan. If you want an active holiday, it doesn’t matter whether you’re a complete newbie or a seasoned adrenaline junkie – Geilo offers action on all levels. Not only can you choose between a huge variety of alpine slopes – the cross-country tracks are also made to suit anyone who wants to venture into the mountains. 

As well as during the wintertime, Geilo offers a wide range of activities during the summer months. One of the highlights must be rafting on the Numedalslågen, or taking the zipline in the Geilo Summer park. But there is much more like canyoning, horseback riding, guided mountainbike tours and guided glacier walks. You can also go mountain biking or cycle the popular Rallarvegen (the navvies’ road) or visit Geilojordet to soak up some history along with a meet-and-greet with local baby animals.

The area also has plenty of ways to relax, such as luxurious spas and various charming eateries that invite you to feast on local flavors.
