This is one of the longer stages of the tour, but it is mostly flat and the only stage on tarmac. You will bike through an idyllic valley called Øversjødalen, where the road winds its way down from the mountain passing lakes and rivers along the way. When you arrive at your end destination in the town centre of Tolga you will be picked up and transported to Alvdal where you will be lodged at the historic Steien Hotel.
Distance: About 55 km
The first leg goes through the idyllic Haustdalen, which is an area with lots of summer pasture farms. Along the way you can also see remnants of the historic cableway which ran from the mines in Folldal and over to Alvdal. After the descent back to the valley floor you arrive at Kvebergsøøya farm, a historic and traditional mountain farm.
Distance: About 30 km
After a delicious breakfast it is time to jump back on the bikes. You will follow the river Grimse as it winds its way up to Grimsdalen. Grimsdalen is regarded as one of the most scenic mountain valleys in Norway, and once you get there you will understand why! The tour ends at Grimsdalshytta mountain lodge, where you can rest your legs and enjoy a 3-course meal with a spectacular view.
Distance: About 35 km
The last leg follows Grimsdalen all the way back to the valley floor. Once you get down from the mountains you bike through the vibrant farming community at Dovre. The tour ends at Dombås where you can jump on the train home after a memorable tour in the Norwegian mountains.
