The climate of Geilo (Norway)
Geilo is located in the southern part of Norway on the Ustendals Fjords. The village is situated in the mountains and is known for its winter sports activities. Several pistes can be found here that are lit during the evening. The area is also ideal for snowboarders and kite skiers. Those who do not want to go skiing can enjoy the snowy landscape from a horse-sleigh. During the summer the surroundings of Geilo are ideal for walking. The average annual temperature (1 degree Celsius) is much lower here than in the rest of Norway because the village is situated at an altitude of 810 meters. Because of the altitude at which the village is situated Geilo has a polar climate. especially during the winter extreme cold is not uncommon. Because of fhn winds coming from the coast temperatures may rapidly rise. Because of the warm air that is supplied during these winds differences in temperatures may rise up to 20 degrees Celsius.
