Contrast Adventure Norway Bike tour Oppdal - Åndalsnes

Bike tour Oppdal - Åndalsnes

To experience wilderness in close reach from a bike, gives a total different approach than from a carseat. Smells, sounds and weather becomes very real, and you will experience the surroundings around you change from a mountain range, where you can (if you're lucky) catch a glimpse of a raindeer or a grouse, before you eventually see the sparkeling fjord in a distance. To slow down, and just exsist on a bike, gives a huge inner reward. The tour is an adventure from beginning to end. We start by the mountains and end up by the fjord. The tour starts at Oppdal train station, and ends at Åndalsnes train station. We then recommend the popular “Raumabanen” after the tour. The tour`s distance is a total of 240 km, and we climb almost 4000 metres during the tour. We can do the trip in 3 days, but for those who want shorter days on the bike, we recommend to make the tour in 4-6 days. We also recommend to stay one extra night in Åndalsnes, and do the popular hike of “Romsdalseggen”. Join us for an adventure you'll never forget!
