When it comes to getting the best out of your holidays, remember that Geilo is just just the start; Eastern Norway has been blessed with an abundance of scenic delights. Examples of places within a relatively short distance of Geilo are Hallingdal, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the southwest, and Hemsedal, 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the southwest.
Visitors looking to discover spots of quiet contemplation, will enjoy the chance to visit the region's many churches. For a low-cost outdoors activity that the whole family will enjoy, take the time to stop by the region's open-air exhibits, farms and open-air museums.
If the sun is shining while you are here, explore Eastern Norway's watery side. Fishing and boating are both popular here. If you love spending time with folk who share your passions, Eastern Norway features a range of specialist activities such as guided nature walks and city walking tours.
A great way to make friends with the locals is using the local language, so while vacationing in Eastern Norway it is great if you can learn a handful of practical Norwegian sentences. Why not try "Kvar kjem du frå?" The English translation of this phrase is "Where are you from?" You'll find that learning "Kva heiter du?", which means "What's your name?", can be a good conservation starter.
You'll be reluctant to say "Ha det bra" (farewell) to this memorable spot.
