Description

This 4-day tour will take us to explore amazing mountain bike routes in Alvdal.

With Rondane National Park as our backdrop, we will experience some of the best mountain biking and mountain culture that Norway has to offer.
Most of the trails we will use for biking are either trails to the nearby 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, and a wide variety of landscapes that we will explore day by day.

In the evenings, we will spend the night in local farmhouses and hotels, with plenty of time to relax in a peaceful natural environment. You can find a detailed day-by-day itinerary below.

Keep in mind we will ride an average of 25km per day with both uphill and downhill trails. Therefore, it's important that you have a good fitness level and are comfortable riding a mountain bike. Of course, we will be there to guide you every step of the way.

Mountain Bike Guide

I hold a passion for mountain adventures, especially for secret gems off the beaten path.

Through the companies Svaneti Backcountry and Urørt, I have been organizing guided ski tours to Svaneti since 2013. I have first-hand knowledge of the skiing, culture, and local partners in the area.

As a mountain bike guide, I am at the top of my game in my own backyard, which consists of the local mountains, Rondane National Park and the area surrounding Røros.

Wherever we go, I am ready to show you the best trails adjusted to your level and needs.
