Magical Ice Music Preparations Underway...
...our 10th Ice Music Festival is only a few weeks away we're really pleased that interest and tickets sales are at an all time high. Thank you for all your interest! Tickets for individual performances or full festival passes are available by clicking our Ticketmaster page here.
Geilo has been receiving oodles of snow since November and we've stock piled huge mountains of the white stuff to construct not one but two arenas - both in the centre of town, in the Kommune's beautifully designed amphitheatre and out in the countryside in this year's new arena - staged within an ancient Viking burial ground.
Today witnessed an advance party of students from the esteemed Bergen School of Art & Design who arrived to spend time at the new arena location to start planning out their creation to host our famous Saturday midnight concert performance called 'Meditations' performed by Terje Isungset.
In addition to Bergen's finest art students, we've got our stellar volunteer crew arriving, en masse, a full week ahead of the first performance on Friday 5th Feb, to make sure everything's in place for our largest ever festival.
Travelling to Geilo couldn't be easier, with 3 daytime trains from Bergen or Oslo (as the town is town is equidistant between the two cities). The railway is often voted in the top 5 railway journeys in the world, with utterly spectacular views of winter paradise and mountains for most of the 3.5 hours. Upon arrival all hotels have shuttles to greet you and book you in. Simple.
Once in Geilo, there's a host of other winter activities to do, from cross-country and alpine skiing across the whole valley to riding in 3 of Norway's best snow parks. Check out the team at Geilo Holiday who can cater for all your snowsport needs.
Amazing Husky dog tours can also be booked with Geilo Husky, who will take you up and out of the valley and into two of Norway largest national parks - breath taking landscape. A true winter paradise!
In pervious years - Bill Covitz and his top flight cut team carved 2 incredible horns for Daniel Herskedal and Arve Henriksen. What will they construct for our guest musicians this year?? Book your tickets here to experience unique Ice Music first hand...
