There are several routes leading in and out of Géronce. Route 936 linking Oloron-Sainte-Marie and Bayonne passes by the outside of the town. Route 836 passes through the middle of Géronce and links route 936 through roundabouts at Orin and at Geüs-d'Oloron. Highway 524 passes through the neighborhoods of Urein, Dous, Castéra, and Lacé, and links route 836 to route 24 via Esquiule and Barcus.
The grounds in the commune are watered by the "Gave d'Oloron", a river in the Pyrénées. It is also watered by the main river, the "Gave de Pau", and watered by the tributary of the "Gave d'Oloron", the "Joos" (as well as by the tributaries of the latter, the streams of Josset and Cambillou).
