A romantic getaway - How to plan
How to get here - Geilo is located in the mountains midway between Oslo and Bergen. From Oslo it is approx. 220 km and from Bergen approx. 244 km by car. The easiest and fastest way to get to Geilo is to take a train, the train runs directly from both Oslo and Bergen stations. In addition, the Bergen Railway is one of the world's most beautiful train journeys, what could be more romantic than that?
Accommodation - For a romantic weekend for two, we recommend the rustic and extremely charming Geilo Mountain Lodge, or the hotels Dr. Holms Hotel and Vestlia Resort, which also have their own spa and wellness department. Lean back and come to a set table every night. Or rent a cozy cabin/apartment, light the fireplace and order take away!
Autumn activities - Indulge in an activity that neither of you has done before, and that you can now tick off your bucket list. This will bring you closer to each other and provide a memory for life! We recommend booking in advance so that you are guaranteed a place, have you tried dog sledding on dry land, taken a mountain bike course or how about a bath in cold mountain water followed by a private sauna for 90 minutes?
Hiking - It can hardly be more romantic than the combination of autumn colors and magnificent views! Therefore, we can safely recommend the popular Prestholt tour from Prestholtseter. The reward awaits in the form of a fantastic view over Hallingskarvet and Hardangervidda from 1705 m.a.s.l. End the trip with a visit to Prestholtseter and try one of their specialities.
Rent a bike - A bike ride into Budalen is a great ride in scenic surroundings with a lovely view. The distance is 12 km round trip, which makes the trip manageable for the vast majority of people. A fantastic trip in scenic surroundings with a lovely view of Hallingskarvet. Pack your rucksack, bring a packed lunch and a hot drink in the thermos, stop at Vestreim and enjoy a romantic lunch. To make the trip less demanding, we can recommend renting an electric bike.
Spa & Wellness - What could be more romantic than a delicious spa treatment together followed by a stay in the wellness department? Take a bath, sit back, relax and enjoy the silence! Both Dr. Holms Hotel and Vestlia Resort offer Spa treatment in a relaxing atmosphere.
A dining experience - No matter where you want to stay, it is always nice to have a date night at one of the restaurants. We can recommend Hallingstuene Restaurant and Smakeriet Beefbar - both guarantee a taste experience with high quality food and drink in combination with a warm and wonderful atmosphere! It may be a good idea to book in advance if you have a special wish for a restaurant and time.
