The Highland Lodge is a two minute walk from the centre of Geilo and home to the most popular bakery in the ski resort. Freshly baked bread and pastry aromas fill the hotel each morning, a perfect start to any day on the mountain. Whilst the bakery booms by morning, when the afternoon rolls around it is transformed into a bustling pizzeria with home-baked pizzas and delicious pasta dishes. Pair this with the dark wood an low lit Nordic style lobby lounge with a roaring fireplace and library or the bar spilling out onto the sun terrace with views down the valley and you can't go far wrong.
There's even an indoor pool, sauna and hot tub as well as a fully functioning spa with well being aplenty. Massaging aside, the hotel is around 700 metres from the ski slopes but if you don't fancy the walk then the free ski shuttle bus stops right outside.
