Football cage: 
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.
