Trip program

The tour takes place in the most popular mountain area within Beitostølen. Riding on both gravel roads and natural terrain, the route takes us to a snowy covered mountain with 360 degree panoramic views to majestic peaks, lush expanses of lowland and fresh mountain lakes.

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.
