This package holiday to Forest Chalet in Geilo, Norway departs Tuesday 13th December 2016, for a 7 night stay on a "catered chalet" board basis. A local tourist tax (Taxe de Sejour or Kurtaxe) is levied by many councils in European ski resorts. It varies by standard and type of accommodation and is age dependent, so not everyone is charged. It's not included in the basic price of your holiday and is usually paid locally. For reference, the average charged in winter 15/16 was between 50p and £2 per person, per night.

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...

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...
