Location - where is Vestlia Resort

· 50m from the ski lifts and ski slopes (Geilolia side of the valley) · 50m from the ski school and rental shop · free shuttle to the village centre (approx 2km away) · beautiful views across the lake, mountain and village from many of the rooms and common areas


Overview - hotel description - Vestlia Resort description

From the moment you step into the huge open lobby, the Vestlia will feel just like home. The location is fantastic - it’s just a snowball’s throw from the lifts, ski school and rental store - plus the food and facilities are incredible. The hotel is on the quieter Geilolia side of the resort, but it’s easy to jump on a shuttle bus to the town centre.

The more modern rooms are beautifully decorated, with dark wood and warm colours - plus most of them have balconies, so you can make the most of the stunning views of the valley and slopes.

Norwegians pride themselves on their food and the Vestlia is the perfect example. From the endless breakfast buffet - you can even cook your own flower-shaped waffles - to the sumptuous three-course evening meals; you’ll be glad you’re spending so much time on the slopes to work it all off.

The Vestlia doesn’t just have one pool area - it has two. Just off the lobby is a huge indoor pool, kids’ pool, hot tub and a waterslide that loops outside before coming back into the warmth. Downstairs is an adults-only spa with a second pool, sauna, steam room, whirlpool and plunge pool - plus a range of treatments and massages on offer for an extra charge.

When you finish on the slopes, you can have a quiet drink in the bar, spend a couple of hours in the bowling alley or let the kids run wild in the gigantic indoor soft play area.

Please note:

When booking the Ski Plus package, Finest upgrades including extra baggage allowance and the executive lounge will not be included.

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. For something special, book a table at Restaurant Hallingstuene, where one of Norway’s favourite TV chefs, Frode Aga, whips up modern twists on Traditional Norwegian cuisine. 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 ...
