Welcome to the National Park Village Geilo!
We have welcomed guests to Geilo since 1880. Geilo has been voted "Norways Best Ski Resort" in 2019, 2020 and 2021, and is a great choice for active days of family-skiing or refreshing peaceful moments with majestic nature and its well known "Champagne" air.
Geilo is a winter wonderland for the family, a place where you can relax, drink hot chocolate with the kids, chase after them down the ski slopes where they are happy and eager to share their newest ski skills, smiles and laughter with you. Almost 150 years of being hosts have made us mountain holiday specialists and we have hand-picked experiences and possibilities for you.
Geilo is a popular ski resort, and one of the most complete Norwegian winter destinations. With a variety of activities, restaurants, a fantastic ski resort, miles of cross-country trails and several accommodation options, we have something for everyone: the couple, the group of friends, the family with small children and the extended family! The vast majority of offers are gathered right in the center. That way you can easily enjoy nice days in the slopes, and take a break with a trip on dog sledding, ice fishing, horse riding, shopping or a wonderful lunch at one of the destination's many restaurants and ski cafes. Geilo also has a, free of charge, ski bus that runs every day during the winter season - connecting all accommodation to the town centre and ski slopes.
In Geilo, there are alpine slopes on both sides of the valley, which are connected with the ski bus. Therefore, a large selection of slopes is easily accessible for you. There are many children's areas with play and fun, and more challenging slopes for the experienced skier and snow parks with plenty elements and different levels for the park enthusiast.
Skiing in the National Park Village
In the Geilo area, you will find over 50 alpine slopes and both large and small snow parks. The slopes are well-groomed and located close to the center for an efficient and pleasurable skiing experience. You can ski down the slopes, take off your skis and walk right into the stores and restaurants. A ski bus runs all day from your accommodation to the slopes. Geilo is also an eldorado for cross-country skiing, with more than 550 km of well prepared and marked tracks. Stop at one of Geilo's traditional mountain cafés and treat yourself to some traditional Norwegian waffles and hot chocolate.
There are separate areas for the little ones, ensuring a safe and good ski experience regardless of skill level. In Geilo, you can rent modern equipment in all categories. At the ski rental, you also get help to adjust bindings and prepare and upgrade your own equipment. Are you a beginner or maybe you want to fine tune your technique? The ski schools in Geilo have knowledgeable and experienced instructors who can give you some pointers or teach you to conquer the slopes. Children under seven years ski for free, and the crèche takes babies from six months old.
Bucket list destination
Do you want to visit the Norwegian fjords? And did you know that the fjords are just as beautiful in winter time?
