Christmas holiday in Geilo - How to plan
How to get here - Take the children on an unforgettable Christmas trip, directly from Oslo or Bergen! Imagine that the train in front of you is the Polar Express itself, which will take you on an adventurous journey. Step into the world of magic, sit back and let the train take you safely to Geilo. On the journey, you will experience powerful nature, Christmas-decorated towns and glittering winter landscapes. It is not without reason that the Bergen Railway is called one of the world's most beautiful train rides!
Accommodation - Stay close to the ski lift, take the ski bus between the ski resorts and avoid the stress of finding a parking lot. The hotels are nicely decorated and you can't help but feel the Christmas spirit. If you choose self-catering, you completely decide the pace yourself, and what could be cozier than sitting in front of the fireplace with the children and a cup of hot cocoa after a long day of skiing?
Christmas activities - In Geilo there are lots of activities and experiences for both young and old. If you still need some Christmas spirit, maybe a sleigh ride is for you? Or how about a snowshoe trip followed by a cozy time around the bonfire?
Skiing - Whether you like alpine skiin or cross-country skiing, you will find your skiing paradise in Geilo! Doesn't it sound nice to ski for a few hours, until your body gets tired and your cheeks turn pink, and then sit in front of the fireplace with a hot cocoa?
Indoor activities - There is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothes, as they say in Norway! But, if so, there is plenty to do indoors as well. Among other things, you can play bowling at both Vestlia Resort and Dr. Holms Hotel. All courses have the option of a course fence that prevents the ball from ending up in the chute. Maybe the youngest will be a bowling champion? At Vestlia Resort, you will also find a play area and a small water park, where the children can throw themselves into the 82-metre-long water slide. Both Vestlia Resort and Dr. Holms Hotel also offer a spa and wellness department for adults!
Christmas program - Most hotels and the ski center have their own Christmas program. Follow our event calendar and the various websites to see what's happening in Geilo!
Christmas food - Christmas is all about relaxing. What could be better than coming to a fully set table? If you want lunch or dinner, Sofias Restaurant is a nice gathering place for the whole family with good food and drink in a cozy and good atmosphere. Take away is also a fantastic opportunity, after a lot of Christmas food, perhaps sushi from Geilo sushi is tempting?
Shopping - The center of Geilo consists of a cozy pedestrian street, with many shops and cafes. Take a break from the activities, explore the center of Geilo and all it has to offer!
