Planning a Trip
Getting There -- From Flåm, motorists return to Aurland to connect with Rte. 50. It runs southeast through the towns of Steine, Storestølen, Hovet, and Hagafoss. In Hagafoss, connect with Rte. 7 going southwest into Geilo. If you're dependent on public transportation, forget about the meager long-distance bus service and opt for the train connections via Oslo or Bergen. From Oslo, the fare is NOK437 ($87/£44) per person one-way, and the trip takes 3 1/2 hours; from Bergen, it's NOK392 ($78/£39) one-way and takes 3 hours.
Visitor Information -- The Turistinformasjonen office is at Vesleslåtteveien 13 in the town center (tel. 32-09-59-00). It's open June to August daily from 9am to 9pm; September to May Monday to Friday 8:30am to 5pm, Saturday 8:30am to 3pm. The town doesn't use street addresses, but everything is laid out easily enough to find. Also visit www.geilo.no for information.
