Fatbikes on wide tires is becoming very popular in Norway. Sales of fatbikes has taken off in recent years. If you haven’t tried it yet, you get a chance at Vestlia Resort. Super wide tires provide a great support surface and makes it possible to ride on snow. A fatbike behaves pretty much the same as a normal bike, but riding on snow is both fun and adventurous.
Geilo Horse Centre and Geilo Husky tread grooves that are nice to ride in. They are easy to find below Vestlia Resort or between Mailatunet and Solli (driving range). Geilo Husky’s grooves go from their “base camp” via Veslefjorden and on to the Storfjorden, roundtrip. Later in the season the tracks of Geilo Dogsledding meet Geilo Husky’s tracks at the top of Storefjorden, so you can ride on the North side of Ustedalsfjorden towards “Geilo Beach” (where Geilo Dogsledding starts their tours).
Rent a bike in Vestlia Resort’s reception. Price: Starting at NOK 450, – per person.

“Great few sessions this week from Geilo Aktiv – fat biking group ride, fat biking solo session and a cross country skiing lesson. Knowledgeable and encouraging tuition, great kit and the downhill fat biking was just brilliant
