Geilo ski holidays transport you to Norway's second largest resort which lies between Oslo and Bergen. In a stunningly beautiful area on the Hardangervidda Plateau, it sits at an altitude of eight hundred metres. The highest lift reaches almost twelve hundred metres. Geilo has two ski centres with shuttle buses running between the two. Geilolia has the easier greens and blues and has the main ski school operating from its centre. The other area, Slaatta, has mainly blues and reds. Generally speaking, the resort does not attract the expert skier. Having said that, there are a handful of challenging runs and there is good off-piste terrain. Geilo is an ideal choice for those with families as provision of childcare is good.
Low cost Geilo ski holidays.
Low cost Geilo ski holidays are very appealing. Those who wish to avoid crowded slopes and are looking for a snow sure resort with a relaxed atmosphere need look no further. Novices will enjoy learning new skills on soft, well-groomed slopes and with the help of English speaking instructors they can soon practise their basic turns on the wide, gentle and uncrowded runs at Geilolia. Intermediates enjoy the reds and blues of Slatta where they feel they almost have the mountain to themselves. Cross country skiers have two hundred and twenty kilometres of trails. The terrain is ideal for boarders as there is a snow park with rails, kickers and a quarter pipe.

They all provide high standards of accommodation, have good modern amenities and you'll receive a warm and friendly welcome. Restaurants serve a variety of traditional fare and international cuisine.
