The Geilolia companies have run tourism and development of property and activity offerings at Geilo since the 1980’s. Then Geilolias owners, the Lorentzen family, went in as owners in what was once the Vestlia Ski Center. The development of a modern ski resort at Geilo started. We started snow making in 1980 and were first in Norway with snow cannons. There has since been a continuous development of trails, services such as dining and kindergarten, summer park and terrain park.
In spring 2017 the ski center was sold to new owners. In the mid-1990s, the construction of Geilolia Hyttetun started, which is one of Geilo’s most attractive accommodation options. Geilolia Hyttetun is 32 cabins in good Norwegian quality in ski in location to ski center. In the 2000s, Geilolia Vacation Rentals became part of the company’s commitment to Geilo. The apartment complex with associated land for further development of 100 new apartments, centrally located at Geilo city center.
The Geilolia companies currently have more than 300 beds for rent to tourists all year round. Parallel with the operation of the Hyttetunet, there are developed and built apartments on the property in the center and cottages with ski-in location in Geilolia Hyttetun. Geilolia companies are proud to have business and development at Geilo, one of Norway’s most visited mountain destinations. Our cottages and holiday apartments that are in rent, have a good visit of tourists from home and abroad. Nature at Geilo provides the best opportunities for outdoor activities and good days out.
