Geilo Travel Guide: 35 reviews and 83 photos

Geilo is situated about halfway between Oslo and Bergen at the top end of the valley Hallingdal.

.
.
.
It is one of Norway’s best ski resorts with 18 lifts and a couple of hundred kilometres of cross-country tracks. Geilo is also a popular resort in the summer and offers many activities as hiking, fishing, rafting and mountain cycling.

I visit Geilo often as I have family living there.
I lived there once and used to use the ski-lifts a lot, but lately I prefere cross-country skiing.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:A small village with all the facilities you can imagine
  • Cons:Can be a bit crowded in the popular seasons
  • In a nutshell:The perfect family resort

    Yes your photos are great. The area also looks a bit like Western Pennsylvania in winter.
