7 days / 6 nights, Oslo - Geilo - Oslo

Departures daily, Dec 2005 / Jan - April 2006

Situated half way between Oslo and Bergen, in the Hallingdal Valley, it is easily accessible by rail. From Oslo enjoy a beautiful train ride on the scenic Bergenbanen, through the Hallingdal Valley to the vast mountain plateau of the Hardangervidda.

Geilo offers slopes for both experts and beginners, and has several areas for children with their own lifts and day-care centers. There are also three great snowboard parks with Scandinavia’s only super pipe. In addition there are about 220 km cross-country trails for those who want to enjoy a fantastic experience in beautiful mountain scenery.

As snowboarding has grown to become a very popular sport, Geilo has built 3 snowboarding parks. On both sides of the valley, and we have Scandinavia’s only super pipe! Vestlia has a slope which is 1400 m long and on the other side there is one that is 700m. There is also a half pipes, fun box, bunks, slides, and big jumps. There is music to create the right atmosphere, a four seat ski lift that goes parallel with the slope and a café if one feels like taking a break and grab something to eat.

Geilo Ski Center offers 18 lifts and 35 groomed runs for alpine skiing, a vast terrain for cross-country and Telemark skiing and a super pipe for the snowboarder. Reliable ski conditions from November through May makes Geilo a great winter holiday resort! Geilo, an Eldorado for young and old!


Snow Boarding

Test yourself on the big jump, fun box and border cross, or try the country’s only super-pipe in Norway’s best snowboard park.

Many people think that this is exactly what Geilo has. The best snowboarders come here to become even better, while others have enough to work on keeping up with the laws of gravity while they practice backside and front side rodeos, or perform a high backside air with indy grab.

You can do a board slide on the rail, and the Volkswagen beetle on the slope is ready for a nose & tail bunk.


The Super Pipe at Fugleleiken - Norway’s coolest half pipe
With a height of 5.70 meters and length of 150 meters, the new half pipe on Geilo’s sunny side looks huge and formidable.

It is Northern Europe’s largest half pipe, but it is also suitable for beginners. More than NOK 1.2 million has been invested in special maintenance equipment for the snowboard parks, for the benefit of our snowboard guests.

Test yourself on the big jump, fun box and border cross, or try the country’s only super-pipe in Norway’s best snowboard park.

Cross Country

The majestic Hallingskarvet mountain watches over everything and everyone. Round the mountain there are endless kilometers of inviting cross country tracks. A cross country ski trip is so much more than just walking up and along. A mouthful of healthy and good life is what you get. Enjoy it! The municipality of Hol has a total of 500 km of prepared and/or marked cross country tracks. There are a total of 215 km prepared cross country tracks in the Geilo/Ustaoset area. 40 km are in woodland, 175 km are on the high mountains, 26 km are prepared for using skating technique, 5 km are floodlit.
