Geiteryggvatnet lake westwards towards Såtedalen valley.

Aurlandsdalen can be reached either from the village of Aurlandsvangen or from Vierbotn at Geiteryggen. Geiteryggen can be reached via highway 50 from Hol in Hallingdal.

The original proposal for routing the Bergensbanen railway track had it passing through Geiteryggen if these plans had been carried out the railway tracks would have followed this trace to Hallingskeid.
