The nearest train station is at Geilo itself. There is accommodation located close to the pistes but we would welcome additional information about any hotels or chalets in Geilo.

Visitor Reviews of Geilo
Steve Heap from United Kingdom writes:
We were there in March 2019. Lovely friendly resort with two separate alpine ski areas. A free ski bus tours around Geilo on a regular basis. Nice eateries. Very friendly. Great cross-country skiing too. Possible to hire a mix of both alpine and cross country skis.
Great for beginners and intermediate skiers.
We will certainly visit again.
