Activities in Geilo Norway Winter Attractions
From swimming and bowling to sleigh-rides and snowshoeing, Geilo has a fantastic range of non-ski activities. While many are suitable for families, it’s also possible to escape the kids for a spa treatment at Dr Holms or Vestlia Resort.

Non-ski Activities: Our Top Ten
Tobogganing - Take the drag lift up and whizz back down on the mile-long toboggan run in Havsdalen which is one of the longest in Norway, steering your sledge as you speed downhill. Great fun from 10 years and over. There is also a separate track for the younger children!

Dog Sledding - Meet your team of friendly, well-trained Alaskan huskies, and then head off on a three-mile taster, a full day trip, or an overnight experience. Great fun for all the family. There are two husky sledding companies in Geilo.

Snowshoeing - Join a guided group, individual or private trip. Go after dark to take in the winter landscape by moonlight or head torch.

Horse sleigh ride - Take a sleigh ride into Geilo town, or explore the forest. Best done in the evening under torchlight.

Fat Bike taster - Like mountain biking but with bigger tyres, snow-biking or ‘fat biking’ has become very popular in Norway in recent years. The wide tyres help you to float on the snow, following the same principle as off-piste skis.

Snowmobiling - Ride past stunning scenery, looking out for elk, deer and eagles. Norway has strict rules on where snowmobiles can be used, but there’s a designated area 15 miles outside Geilo.

Bowling - Dr Holms Hotel, in the village centre, has a six-lane ten pin bowling alley and American style diner. If you’re staying on the Geilolia side of the valley, Vestlia Resort has an eight-lane bowling alley. Both are open to non-residents.

Swimming & Spa - Vestlia Resort, at the base of the Geilolia slopes, has a superb family pool with an 82-metre waterslide, whirlpool and children’s pool. The separate spa area has a pool, steam room, plunge pool, saunas and treatment rooms. There’s also a superb wellness centre at Dr Holms which has six treatment rooms and a hydrotherapy bath.

Bergen Railway - One of the world’s most scenic train lines runs right through the resort. Riding the railway is a fantastic way to experience more of the local area, with daytrips to the Flåm Railway a highlight.

Geilolia Tree Top Walkway - This high ropes course is one of Norway’s biggest, and includes a 150-metre zip line. Located in the Geilolia area, there’s also a children’s play area and a café nearby.
