Geilo Hestesenter is a family run business that opened in 1969, by father Ola and his two sons Arne and Asle Kirkevoll.
At their home Geilostølen, Asle soon became fascinated by the Hardangervidda and whilst working for the Buskerud Agricultural Company between 1972-1973, he and his pony Rosa spent a summer tracking cows that were able to roam free over the Hardangervidda. From this Alse found a calling to showing visiting tourists the beauty of the mountains from the horseback. Alse has been riding now for over 40yrs and countless visitors have followed him on trips over the Hardangervidda.

At its peak, in the early 90’s, Geilo Hestesenter had over 80 horses in use during the busy summer period. Today, it has 21 horses that are in constant activity throughout the year.
