In June 2019 we rented a mountain cabin in Norway for our summer holiday. Unlike our French trip the year before, we decided to go car-less because we wanted to save money and remove the pressure of having to see so many tourist places when you have a car. Our modest accommodation is located four kilometres away from the nearest supermarket, and our two year old daughter was just getting the hang of walking.
Geilo is the capital of Hol, in Viken county. Smacked between Bergen and Oslo, it’s a popular winter destination among Norwegians based on the number of privately-owned winter cabins in this area. Geilo is less busy in the summer and has a relatively cooler temperature compared to summer destinations in Europe. But what do you do in the mountains for 10 days when you don’t have a car?
