Description

GRADE:
Easy. Recommended for families with young children or less experienced cyclists. No traffic.

ROUTE DESCRIPTION:
From Beitostolen, drive to the North on road 51 to Bygdin. After you have passed the Bygdin Høyfjellshotell, turn left and find a place to park your car. From there, follow a nice mountain gravel road along the Bygdin Lake for approx. 3 km until the road ends, and return on the same way. The scenery in this area is breathtaking!

If you want a more challenging route, start cycling from Beitostølen. However, due to the traffic on road 51, this is not recommended for children.
