How to get to Geilo
It’s easy! Whilst Norway is a vast nation of mountains and fjords the South in particular has a well-connected railway. After flying into Oslo, the easiest and most environmentally friendly was is to take the train. The line you will need is the Oslo to Bergen line, which you can take from Oslo central station. Once leaving the airport, you can take the airport train to Oslo central and connect to the Bergen line. Other than the cogent environmental argument for taking the train, this journey will allow you to see some of the epic sights of Norway that would otherwise be missed if you were concentrating on driving. You are able to sit back, relax and take in all the surroundings. Enjoy the ride as you weave in and out of Oslo and up into the mountains of South-Central Norway. Allow yourself to be immersed in the gorgeous nature and quaint villages that this journey takes you through.
The train runs at regular intervals, with an average of 3 trips per day so you’ll easily find one that suits your schedule 🙂 Tickets are able to be pre booked by visiting https://www.vy.no/en/ where you will be able to book your tickets and get yourself assigned seating.
Similarly, if you fly into Bergen, you can easily catch the Bergen to Oslo line. Departing Bergen Central, just follow the same line but in the other direction to your perfect holiday paradise in Geilo.
