Description

This is a one day cycling package in Norway's largest national park – Hardangervidda – recognized as one of Norway's most beautiful cycling routes. You start by taking the Krossobanen cable car up from Rjukan to the starting point at Gvepseborg at 883 meters above sea level.

The route is well signposted and well maintained. You can bring the whole family for this 2 hours trip. However, the youngest children might be better off in a bicycle trailer as the terrain is a little hilly. There are many good fishing lakes along the road for you to try to catch trout, and if you are lucky you might catch site of reindeers.

After 30 km you will arrive at the Kalhovd Turisthytte, where you can have dinner and stay overnight. Either you go back by the same route, or you cycle further to Atrå.

Price includes: 
3 course dinner and 1 night accommodation in double room including breakfast at Kalhovd Turisthytte. 

Extra costs:
Krossobanen cable car
Bed linen at Kaldhov Turisthytte
Bike rental
