From the gondola at Mosetertoppen you have access to the mountain scenery with possible round trips in the Øyerfjell area. The roads are flat, undulating gravel roads, almost without cars. These trips are fairly easy and can be done with children from around the age of eight or nine. At the bottom of the bike park at Hafjell, you find Øyer, with some of Norway's most popular family attractions, including several theme parks.
From Mosetertoppen, ride to Lisetra, Moksjøen and Pellestova Café. This is a fairly short round trip and a nice introduction to Hafjell and the surroundings. Distance: Around 20 kilometres.
A longer version of the trip above. From Moksjøen, ride eastwards to Hornsjø Hotel, south to Lake Reinsvatn and then via Pellestova back to Mosetertoppen. The trip is suitable for families with children from ten years. Distance: Around 35 kilometres.
Start easy from Mosetertoppen to Reinsvatn and Nordseter. After that, a long hill takes you to Sjusjøen Village and further up to Storåsen. Return via Kroksjøen, Elgåsen, Mellsjøen and Reinsvatn to Pellstova and Mosetertoppen. There are cafés and grocery stores at Nordseter and Sjusjøen.
This is an all-day outdoor adventure through both wilderness and civilisation, passing through the major cross-country skiing destinations of Nordseter and Sjusjøen. Distance: Around 45 kilometres.
The mountains around Hafjell are not very steep, and several can be reached by bike on single tracks. Mountain bikers with some experience can access the peaks of Hafjell (1,065 metres), Reinsfjell (1,066 metres), Hitfjell (1,083 metres) and Nevelfjell (1,089 metres) from the gondola at Mosetertoppen. In some places, you may have to push the bike uphill a little, before you start cruising down on the other side.
Mountain biking in Øyerfjell and Sjusjøen
From Hafjell there are plenty of bike rides to choose from in the Øyerfjell and Sjusjøen areas. Mountains, lakes, moors and old summer dairy farms are typical elements of these peaceful surroundings. A great starting point for these trips is the gondola at Mosetertoppen. The trails start in the forest, but after just a few kilometres you will ride through open landscapes, taking in the mountain scenery.
The Hafjell bike shop has 120 downhill bikes and 20 cross-country bikes to rent. The shop sells a range of spare parts, safety gear and bike clothing. There is also a workshop that can help you with any mechanical problems, regardless of whether you have hired a bike or brought your own.
The season runs from June to October.
The park's opening hours are available online (usually 10.00 – 17.00).
