Arrival at our first lodging, the beautiful and historic Kvebergsøya farm hotel. After a delicious 3-course meal from local produce we will go through the plans for the days ahead.
The day starts with a refreshingly fun descent. We will be shuttled to the top of an old cableway used by the old mines in the area, from where we will descend on a beautiful trail back down to the valley. Once we get to the valley floor we begin our ascent by singletrack to the mountains with spectacular views of Rondane National Park. We finish the tour with a superquick and fun descent to our lodging at Romsdalssetra mountain farm, idyllically located by the river Einunna. We will be served traditional Norwegian mountain food, made from produce at the mountain farm.
We have a full day in the mountains ahead with biking from mountain farm to mountain farm in the mellow and magnificent mountain landscape in the area. During the tour we will be crossing two valleys and finish the day with a beautiful singletrack following a mountain ridge to the valley floor. Arriving at our destination you can enjoy a refreshing swim in the spa pool, and in the evening, we will be served a delicious dinner made from local produce.
For the last day we will enjoy two very scenic traverses, finishing every traverse with a thrillingly fun descent. At the end of our tour we will be picked up and transported back to Kvebergsøya, our first lodging.
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.
