In winter, Geilo Horse Center offers sleigh rides - horse and sleigh - in the center of Geilo, as well as winter horseback riding. Make yourself comfortable under blankets and relax. This activity is a pleasant experience suitable for the whole family! Or experience the beautiful winter landscape from horseback.

Sleigh rides are suitable for larger groups and individuals who want a pleasant ride in fresh air, or transport to one of Geilo's restaurants. The sleds are Austrian and have plenty of room for 10 people. They are not dependent of the weather conditions as the sleigh also has wheels that can be used if there is not enough snow. Sleigh rides is a popular activity, so we recommend booking early if you have special wishes for the day and time.
