Description

GRADE:
Easy - moderate

DESCRIPTION:
This cycling route to Haugseter can start from Beitostølen, or by the parking area at the entrance of the Jotunheimen road near Bygdin.

From Beitostølen, you first have to cycle approx. 13 km North along main road 51 before you turn off to the right onto the Jotunheimen road. From there it's another 12 km to Haugseter.

The Jotunheimen road winds through an open and accessible mountain terrain, and on the way you pass small farms and idyllic pastures with lots of animals that wander alongside the road. You cycle along the water Vinstre.

The view is superb! Have a well deserved rest and treat yourself to a nice meal at Haugseter Fjellstue before you return the same way.

REMARKS:
From Beitostølen, you can cycle on the pedestrianwalkway all the way to Garli, before you enter the main road 51.

Along the route you pass the kiosk Bitibua (where they sell local food products), a lappish tent with souvenir, and Bygdin Fjellstue, near the Bygdin lake.
