Hiking trails suitable for everyone with a 360 degree view of the Norwegian mountains. A couple of hours of close contact with nature is an exciting journey of discovery, and an achievement to be proud of, for families with children. The longer trips offer altitude meters, mountain water, silence, and as many kilometers as you want to log. Rest areas and cabins, which offer a well-deserved break and dining, are the reward that awaits those who reach the goal. Had we had a national facility for hiking, it would certainly have been Geilo and the surrounding mountains.
Walking is mental hygiene
Recreation is the art of thinking the long thoughts, the ones that come tellingly when you stress down and forget to check mail. Although we have learned a lot since we were little, there is little that can compare to the simple joy of walking. Watch the play of colors and smell the mountains, make room for the silence and take in the amazing views that just come and go. After the trip, you are tired in a good way. Body and soul have found a balance, the food tastes better and the greatest of all pleasures awaits - a good night's sleep.
Geilo offers a wide range of accommodation options, from simple and budget-friendly to resort hotels with all rights. Of course, it is also possible to stay overnight in different cabins in the mountains, both with and without hosts, when you are on a trip. Or you can pitch a tent, enjoy the sunset and cook the fish you caught a few hours ago.
