Description
The Øyangen route is 35 km. It is an easy cycling  tour around the beautiful lake Øyangen. We recommend a stop at the Høvda Sylv og Tre (silver and wood gallery) and at Valdres Sølvsmie og Keramikk (silver and ceramics).

The Slettefjell route is 50 km. A demanding tour with a 6 km climb from 703 to 1315 m.s.l. On the top of the mountain plateau Slettefjell, you can enjoy a spectacular view of Valdres and Jotunheimen National Park.
