Kids winter heaven

Parenthood is a period of life when most of us put our children first knowing that a happy kid makes happy parents. We want our children to be active and to collect nice memories, meet new friends and just enjoy being a happy kid all day long until it is time for bed. We also know that a kid that has been running, jumping, cheering and skiing is destined to fall asleep literally when the head hits the pillow at night, leaving a few hours of grown-up time before we turn in. That´s life. Geilo is renowned for being an ideal destination for children as most of the range of activities welcomes kids as well as grown ups. That fresh mountain air has been a Geilo asset since long before the hotels came.

Fun in the snow

Geilo at wintertime comes with a snow guarantee often making skiing the preferred activity. Children are welcome to have fun in the slopes from dusk till dawn, either on their own in the kids slopes, with their family or attending Ski school to improve their skills. Geilo offer Ski school from 2-3 year olds up to kids, teenagers and grown ups, all courses adjusted to your level of skills. We strongly recommend that you buy your Skipasses and book Ski school and rental ski gear online before arriving at Geilo, saving you both time and money as you skip the queues.

If the kids want to try toboggan, a sleigh ride or dog sledding it is all here. The adventure is awaiting you all.



Dog sledding

Cuddle our beautiful and skilled dogs and enjoy the ride when they start running you into the magic mountains. Happy dogs and happy children is a true memorable combination. 

Cinema and cafés

Geilos city centre offers a variety of shopping, a few cafés and restaurants serving local specialities and international cuisine. A trip to the movies, an exibition or a concert is always nice when the kids want to do something other than skiing.
