Itinerary

Day 1:

Arrival in the evening at the local mountain farm, which will serve as our base for the tour. After dinner we will go through the plan for the days ahead.

Day 2:

Our own chef serves a magnificent breakfast at our base before we head out for the first day in the Norwegian mountains. We live in the middle of mtb-paradise, with dry alpine singletracks in beautiful scenery. We finish the day with a super fun singletrack through the woods back to our base, with a well-earned microbrew in the sun or the hot tub. In the evening we will have a microbrew tasting with a local brewery, before we enjoy a 3-course meal from local produce gathered just outside our doorstep.

Day 3:

Another day of enjoying the best of the Norwegian mountains. We head back out to the amazing network of singletracks, and finish the day with a 3-course meal and microbrew.

Day 4:

After breakfast we will be transported to Mt. Tron, where we will be shuttled up to a mountain plateau on Norway’s second highest lying mountain road. From the plateau we have 400 vertical meters of fantastic singletrack down to the tree line, from where we can pick and choose among some of the best mountain biking Norway has to offer.

The area

Mountain biking in Alvdal, Folldal, and Tynset

Most of our tours are hosted in the beautiful mountain landscape neighboring Rondane National Park. The mountain biking in Alvdal, Folldal and Tynset is known for its unique combination of trails above and below the tree line. The mountains in the area are almost hand tailored for mountain biking, with summits that are steep enough for fantastic descents, but also mellow enough so you don’t have to push your bike too often. It is one of the driest areas in Norway, well protected from western low pressures by the mountain regions of Rondane and Jotunheimen. This means mostly dry trails throughout the season!

In Alvdal you find Mt. Tron, with Norways highest mountain road all the way to the summit. This provides a unique starting point to a magnificent network of trails. The area is also famous for the mountain farms, spread all over the mountains in the region. Most of the trails we use for biking are either used as trails to the mountain farms, or to the old mines, which you also find scattered around the area. Both result in a unique network of trails in the mountains.
