Trip program

The tour route goes through easy mountain terrain in the area surrounding Beitostølen. Following dirt roads and small trails, we ride inward through a vibrant landscape, overlooking Jotunheim and Langsua national parks. Each season here provides a unique experience. In spring time you can experience the blooming flora in the lowlands, and see views of snow covered mountain peaks, reflecting down into icy mountain lakes. In fall, you’ll ride through colourful autumnal landscapes, breathe in fresh mountain air, and see mountain tops sprinkled with fresh snow.
