Voted Norway's Best Ski Resort 2019-2022, the conditions in Geilo (pronounced yay low) are world-class for beginners and families. The two ski areas of Geilo and Geilolia are linked by a shuttle and boast unintimidating slopes, helpful lift attendants and an award-winning ski school. Children under seven ski for free and the crèche takes babies from six months.
Arriving on one of the world's most scenic railways makes a memorable start, with the Bergen to Oslo line stopping in the village centre. This makes it easy to add a city stopover, visit the fjords or experience the dramatic Flåm Railway.
One of Norway's oldest resorts, Geilo fringes the country's largest national park. Experiencing nature is part of the appeal, with dog-sledding, fat biking, ice fishing and a tree-top ropes course, as well as cross-country trails and the Langedrag Nature Park & Mountain Farm.
Most amenities are clustered around Geilo station. Restaurant-wise, there's plenty of choice from pizzas to local game and seafood. Families love the Bowl & Dine, while après bars are busiest on weekends, and Off-Pist and Recepten are best for nightlife.
"As an ex-ski instructor who lived and worked in Geilo for five seasons, this is where I'd take my family skiing for the first time - superb ski tuition, amazing childcare and genuine hospitality. What more do you need?"
