Welcome to our hostel

If you are a group looking for an active holiday, then our hostel in Geilo could be the place for you to visit. Because it doesn’t matter whether you are travelling in the winter or the summer as there is always plenty of outdoor fun on the doorstep.

Located just 2km from the centre of Geilo, the hostel is split into two buildings. If you are lucky enough to stay in ‘Grandmas’ house, then there is a sauna here too. For cross-country skiers, the tracks start right outside the hostel. Or if you prefer mountain skiing, then the hostel has its own bus service which can get you to and from the nearby slopes – you just have to ask at reception.

In the summer this area is perfect for hikers and it is obviously a great place to try out Nordic walking. There are a number of routes nearby the hostel which take you through the national park and these can be tailored for families too. If fishing is your thing, then there is no end of choice here. There are more than 80 lakes which can be tackled and if you are staying in the winter then there is the chance to try out frozen lake fishing.

Or if you prefer to do things by bike, there is a great trail – the Navvy Road which was created when the Bergen Railway built in 1909. Stunning scenery attracts more than 25,000 cyclists every year to this route – will you be one of them?

So whatever your reason for getting a group together, our hostel in Geilo would be a great choice. Why not make an enquiry now?
