Bike tour Oppdal - Åndalsnes

Experiencing wilderness and nature from the seat of your bike provides a new, close up Norwegian adventure.  Smells, sounds, and weather become very real. During this trip, you will experience the surroundings around you changing from fjords, to deep valleys, mountain plateaus, and with varied mountain ranges along the route. You can (if you're lucky) catch a glimpse of a reindeer or a grouse, spectacular fjord and valley views, and waterfalls. This trip gives you an escape from the bustle and speed of everyday life, slowing down and smelling the fresh mountain air. This biking trip in itself is an accomplishment, providing that sense of inner reward at the end of the trip.   The tour is an adventure from beginning to end. With varied trails and road, starting up in the mountains, having several km down by the fjords, and crossing a mountain plateau. The tour starts at Oppdal train station (540 meters above sea level) and ends at Åndalsnes train station (at sea level). We then recommend the popular “Raumabanen” train journey back to Oppdal, or on to Oslo, after the tour. The tour is a total of 240 km of biking, we climb almost 4000 meters during the tour, and have even more downhill. This trip can be completed 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!

Norway Fjords Multisport Tour

Norway Fjords Multisport Tour A Hotel & Hut Hiking, Rafting, Biking, and Cultural Adventure in the “Soul” of Norway—the Fjordland From the mountains to the fjords, Norway is a land of stark contrasts. It is a world where sleek, modern style blends with century-old Norse design. Where untamed landscapes envelop pristine cosmopolitan cities, and the cordial descendants of ruthless warriors carry the legacies of adventure and harmony in nature. Boasting four UNESCO World Heritage sites, five national parks and several of the world’s highest waterfalls, Norway’s natural beauty is unrivaled.   Beginning with the majestic National Park of Dovre, where we might meet musk ox and wild reindeer, we make our way through the mountain plateau, through the steep valleys and down to the fjords. We will travel with bikes, hiking and rafting, and in this compact area with as little driving as possible all the way to the water’s edge discovering why the Norwegian word for folktale, “eventyr,” is derived from Latin for “adventure”.   Day 1.
