Overview - apartment description - Forest Cabins description

Picture-perfect log cabins tucked in amongst the trees - each with its own private sauna. If you want to feel you’re properly in Norway then these are absolutely fantastic. We’ve a range of sizes - some sleeping up to 12 people - but they are such great value that even if you are a small family they won’t break the bank. Although eating out in restaurants isn’t cheap the supermarkets are great value (not too dissimilar from the UK) and we’ll even include a grocery pack to start you off. Each of the cabins are spacious with large lounge areas to put your feet up in after skiing, plus full kitchens to cook up a storm for dinner. You’re never far away from the slopes and ski school which are an easy walk from all the cabins, and in the evenings you’ll not want to leave your cosy home.

This small mountain town in eastern Norway is easily one of the nation’s top ski resorts, home to some of its longest established ski areas which we’ve been enjoying for over a century and a half. In the district of Hol, Geilo’s one of Norway’s five national park villages, with the Hardangervidda and Hallingskarvet mountains on either side. A collection of hotels, apartments and shops are bundled together between the fells. Home to 2500 residents, the town feels modern and friendly – it’s easy to navi...
Separate kids ski areas provide an environment for tots to learn safely away from the crowds, and with different areas linked by a ski bus there’s plenty to explore. On one side, the Geiloheisen area near the centre of town has a mix of runs, with the kid’s area accessed from the Havsdelen lift besides a red, green and blue piste. Vestila on the other side is home to slopes of every colour, including some lovely blues that stream down between the trees. Advanced skiers and snowboarders might miss the amou...
When it comes to mealtimes, we like Taubanekroa for burgers and comfort food, but for a good view, get lunch at Top Skicafe which looks out over the Hallingskarvet National Park. On a Saturday, Havsdalskroa pleases the crowds with good drinks and grub, promising only to close when the last guest has gone home... Stugu over in Vestila is a good stop for live music. Look out for the Ice Music festival which celebrates art and music each first full moon of the new year. There’s an armful of activities to ha...
