The area

Mountain biking in Alvdal, Tynset and Folldal

Most of our tours are hosted in the beautiful mountain landscape neighbouring Rondane national park. The mountain biking in Alvdal, Folldal and Tynset is known for it´s 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 mountains farms, spread all around in the mountains of 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 in the area. Both result in a unique network of trails in the mountains.

Mountain biking in Røros

The mountain plateau surrounding Røros is a very special place, with its wide, mellow mountain-terrain stretched across the old mining-landscape. The mining and the logging that came with it, has resulted in a unique network of trails in the mountains surrounding Røros. Most of our tours are hosted in the southern part of the plateau. The mountain biking around Røros is especially known for the mellow and dry singletracks in the mountains.
