  • We build a tailored itinerary. Once you’ve received it, we can answer any further questions and refine it until you are completely happy.

Geilo is a traditional ski resort with a long and illustrious history. Therefore, the nature of accommodation here differs somewhat from the other – newer – resorts. One or two rather grand hotels dominate the scene in the town, each with a colourful past and an established client-base, going back generations. Privately owned log cabins and chalets do exist, but very few of them are rented out to holiday-makers. Geilo is the second home for many in the Norwegian aristocracy and you'll ski past some of the finest, and most expensive, cabins and chalets in all Scandinavia. If you want to stay in one of these palaces, then do get in contact with us and we'll use our local connections to see what we can do. However, these are not the kind of places they wish to see advertised on a website!

Otherwise, it's the fine hotels in the town (Highland Lodge, Bardøla Hotel & Dr Holms), a pretty little cabin villages in the woods at Vestlia (Forest Cabins) along with a stylish resort hotel (Vestlia) and a great apartment complex high on the mountain on the Slaatta side (Havsdalsgrenda).
