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.
