Skating rink at Ustedalsfjorden
At Ustedalsfjorden, an ice rink is now being built in nature. The course is marked with sticks and ribbons, and only within the marked area is it safe. Off the field you need a helmet, ice spikes and you should not walk alone. The ice rink is made with volunteer hours from enthusiasts. Vestlia Resort has contributed equipment, and is responsible for renting out skates. Link to SkateGeilo and more information can be found below. You can reach the track from the car park at Geilo Badestrand or from Vestlia Resort.
1st March: Temporary closed due to safety reasons.
Skate Geilo and skate rental
In Geilo, there is a football cage at Geilo Hallen that will be turned into an ice rink during the winter season. Unfortunately there is no ice this winter season (2022). Ice rink is made on a voluntary basis. This is a small area with a short distance from both the city center and the cross-country stadium.
Nature`s own ice rink:
There is something magical about skating in the darkness of winter, with clear starry skies as lighting and the music of the ice under your feet.
If you would rather stand on natural ice, there are several small lakes that are easily accessible along the road. It is especially early in the season before the snow comes there is a chance to skate on the mountain lakes.
Be aware that it is very important to have experience and knowledge of the ice you are going out on. Do not go on a trip or activity on the ice alone! Always bring the right safety equipment when you try for the first time, and check along the way.
