These traditional self-catering log cabins in Geilo, Norway, are a short walk from the slopes for hiking or skiing and a 15-minute walk from the nearest resort with shops and plenty of dining options. The slopes are gentle and the area is quiet, making this is a great choice for families with younger children who want to introduce them to the joy of skiing and the great outdoors in an unspoiled environment. 

Guests can purchase passes for the nearby hotel and can use the pool, playroom and spa. If you stay over the festive season your cabin will be decked out with a Christmas tree and decorations, lovely to come home to after a day trying out a range of winter sports; dog sledding, skiing or one of the bookable safaris (snowmobile and husky), or if you’re here in the summer there’s horse-riding, white-water rafting and high rope courses. 

The cabins have a spacious downstairs living area with wood-burning stove, veranda with furniture and fully-fitted kitchens. 


The Forest Cabins, Geilo are a 3-hour 20 minutes’ transfer by car from Oslo airport. Flights are available from a choice of UK airports.
