Set in a majestic alpine environment, with the backdrop of Hallingskarvet, Europe's largest mountain plateau, is the resort of Geilo.

Geilo is set amidst beautiful scenery on the banks of Ustedalen Fjord. This charming village has been welcoming visitors since 1890, but has retained its unspoilt appearance, full of traditional Norwegian character.

Situated in the heart of Southern Norway, Geilo has the famous Oslo Bergen railway running through its centre.  

Despite a relatively low village height, Geilo enjoys a long and reliable snow season from mid-November through to early May. This resort is perfect for beginners and intermediates, whilst the more advanced can try seven black runs.
