Tour description
There is something very special about the start of the cycle tour. Krossobanen, the first cable car in Northern Europe, lifts you from Rjukan to the starting point at 886 meters above sea level.
Children and adults alike will find the first two kilometres heading towards Kalhovd the most challenging; here you have to climb a few hundred meters before you reach the tree line and the mountain opens up. Even though this stretch of road is slightly steep, it is well-signed and well-maintained.

In the remainder of the tour, cycling is easy and pleasant. The old construction road made from gravel is suitable for mountain bikes as well as hybrid bikes.

Having travelled 30 km in magnificent high mountain scenery, you arrive at Kalhovd tourist cabin for dinner and an overnight stay.

Returning to Rjukan can be done in the same way you came from or by cycling 30 km down to Atrå and 25 km back to Rjukan. It is important to keep in mind that you cycle along the national road from Atrå to Rjukan

The package includes:

- Up and down with Krossobanen
- Packed lunch from Mathuset Eyde
- Three-course dinner and breakfast at Kalhovd
- Accommodation in a 4-bed rom
- Sheet bag and towels
