Geilo has a goal to be a destination for everyone, also those with limited mobility. Here you will find information regarding where you can stay, dine, activities and outdoor life in the whole municipality.

Eateries and Nightspots

Geilo has many different restaurants and cafes. Many of them can be packed with guests, which sometimes can give challenges in regard to moving freely. Therefore, we recommend that you call ahead and book a table, to ensure accessibility.

Outdoor Life

Geilo is known for its wonderful scenery. So why not experience it? We don’t want a wheelchair to stop you. Geilo has, therefore, created some nice spots that you can easily access.

Another nice spot is by the Seimsbrua bridge , located by the Holsfjorden lake in Hol.
