Itinerary

Day 1:

Arrival at Røros Hotel in the evening. Dinner made from local produce at Norway’s foodie capital. After dinner we will go through the plans for the days ahead.

Day 2:

We mount our bikes for today’s expedition on the mountain plateau surrounding Røros. There is culture and history around every bend, and the mining history that has made Røros famous serves as a backdrop for the day. We finish our day with a beautiful singletrack all the way back to the hotel. Relax in the wellness area, before we enjoy another delicious dinner and get ready for a new day.

Day 3:

This is the biggest day out with around 30 km of singletrack awaiting us. The tour will take us from Røros to Hodalen, through the beautiful and mellow mountain landscape, which this area is known for. We will spend our night at a traditional mountain hut, with dinner served from produce harvested just outside our doorstep.

Day 4:

We embark upon the southernmost part of the mountain plateau surrounding Røros. We follow flowy singletracks in this landscape, which is almost hand tailored for mountain biking. We finish the day with a quick and super fun descent to Raudsjødalen mountain dairy, the only one of its kind in Norway. Produce for our dinner is literally made from scratch at the dairy. A unique experience in the Norwegian mountains!

Day 5:

On our last day we will travel through different kinds of terrain. Most of it in the mountains, but we finish the day with an amazing singletrack through the forest down to the train station in Tolga. This is our pick-up point where we will be transported back to Røros.

The area

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.
