Geilo, pop. 2.400 and about 800 m. a.s.l., is probably the most popular and complete winter resort in Norway, located about halfway between Oslo and Bergen, 3 – 3 1/2 hours by train from either city. Or how about going by helicopter instead (approx. 1 hour)?
Excellent for «Fun in the snow» events – alpine and cross-country skiing, snowboarding, sledding, dog-sledding, snow-scooter safaris and driving a «spark» – an ultra-Norwegian contraption consisting of a seat mounted on steel runners. One person sits on the seat, with a second one scooting it along.
Rustic, 17th C. farm buildings in wood are available as a private venue for your farewell dinner.
