4. Bicycle tour on Romerike, starting from the Quality Airport Hotel Gardermoen

Hotel tour starting at Oslo Airport Hotel Gardermoen

Varied round trip east of the airport along the Pilgrimsruta and with long distances on nice gravel roads in the forest.

Tour description

This tour begins at the hotels located east of the airport. Feel free to stop by the iconic Kepler star and see it up close. It is a great eye-catcher for everyone driving to the airport. At the Modern Activity Center it is possible to test e.g. Norway's roughest wind tunnel.

The bicycle route continues eastwards and eventually northwards along the National Bicycle Route 7 Pilgrim route which runs all the way from Halden to Trondheim. It is signposted with red signs and runs on a separate bicycle path through fields and forest.

It leads into the forest on nice gravel roads. You eventually cross the highway, but apart from that it is quiet and calm and almost a magical atmosphere when the forest gets denser. It also goes through fields and farmyards and the surface becomes more of a cart track and path, but still completely bicycle able. Past Hauerseter there is asphalt and low-traffic roads through residential areas, before it becomes gravel again. Look for both blueberries and raspberries along the roadside.

The last part of the trip goes along an walking and bicycling path back to the hotels.

The route passes Hauerseter train station and can also begin and end from here.
