Within the forest, the Geilolia Forest Cabins are wooden cabins beside the slopes with ski in, ski out access between the trees. If you picture skiing to be from log cabins with roaring fires and private saunas to come back to each evening then this could be just the place for you. The forest cabins are 32 separate little lodges each with 3-5 bedrooms sleeping 6-12 people.

Each cabin has a kitchen, complimentary WiFi and a private sauna. There's also an outdoor terrace and a fireplace in the lounge area - you get a supply of wood with each forest cabin. Little luxuries such as the ski boot warmers, underfloor heating and wood burners make these fairytale lodges perfect. There are even electrical hookups for your car and at least two private parking spaces for each cabin.

What we like about the Forest Cabins

  • Wooden cabins in the woods with ski in, ski out access
  • Wood burners in the lounge as well as private saunas and underfloor heating in each cabin
  • Equipped kitchens and a supply of wood to start you off

Worth knowing

  • The Geilolia forest cabins are under a mile from Geilo resort meaning you can easily get out and explore the town
  • Each has a private terrace for morning coffees with a view
  • If you walk to the supermarket take a rucksack as it's much easier to carry back than carrier bags, allow 20 minutes
