Winter has arrived and now snow is slowly covering Norwegian mountains. This photo was taken in Geilo in county Buskerud. This small town is blooming during the ski season. It’s because of the unique location –  one of the major valleys of eastern Norway called Hallingdal. The Bergen Line facilitated Geilo’s development as the first skiing resort in the country, and it is still one of the largest. It is also famous for having some of the most luxurious and expensive holiday cabins in Norway.
