A hotspot for winter adventures
Activity packed winter holidays in Geilo

With its long-standing tradition as a mountain resort, the Geilo region has been a hotspot for adventurers of all kinds for more than a century. Even though this town is arguably most famous for its alpine skiing, it's also a great basecamp for other kinds of winter adventures – with its prime location at the doorstep of two great national parks, including Norway’s largest: the mighty Hardangervidda plateau.
