It is a very nice place. The building of the railway station is painted in an optimistic light yellow tone (as many station buildings in Norway). There are flower beds with bright flowers everywhere. By the way, about 3,500 people live happily in the town of Nesbyen.
The older gentleman on the balcony with flowers waved goodbye to tourists. And our NSB train drove on.
The scenery remained the same – small cute railway stations (Gol, Ål) with rare passengers.
Soon we reached one of the more or less major stations – Geilo. The marvelous winter resort - the centre of ski sports - is situated here.
Winter events in Geilo: perfect alpine skiing and the unusual and very popular Ice Music Festival. When the first year full moon comes, you can hear the unique sounds produced by musical instruments made of ice. All the spectators enjoy the beauty of icy melodies and mountainous landscapes.
Summer activities in Geilo: hiking, karting, paintball, rafting on mountain rivers, autorally and many other leisure options.
