Join us for two half-day fatbike trips with information about history, mining and nature. Difficulty level adaptable to your fitness
Here there are two possible tours, depending on the day (please check when you book, or contact us if we can make it available). Both are accessible to any biker and both offer opportunities to test yourself and the bikes. We can make them easier or more tricky on request, so feel comfortable telling us! We only operate with very small groups to offer you the most personalized experience.
During the trip we offer hot drinks and cookies. We equip you with helmets, goggles and balaclavas. Dress for some physical activity and bring something extra warm to wear during the stop.
NB: No pickup. Please be at starting time at the 'Scooter Parkering' sign in front of Funken Lodge, not inside.
For more information about the trips, see the links below the description.
Biking to Endalen and mine 5 :
Easy to ride, Flora, Geology, Mining History, World War II
On this trip you will get a good introduction to many interesting topics here on Svalbard on a relatively longer but very easy bike trip. There will be gravel road all the way and only a slight uphill in the end of the trip up to Mine 5.
Fitness: Little fitness required. If you can ride a bike for some hours, you can do this! If you wish to test the bikes it would be possible to continue or ride parts of the trip in the riverbed.
Bike’n Action in Bjorndalen :
Action, Seaside, Scenic views, Mining History
On this trip you will get to really try what the FatBikes actually can do for you. This trip is designed for experienced mountain bike riders. We put the focus on giving you the opportunity to challenge you and the bikes within your capabilities. Along the way you can experience beautiful views and our most scenic remains of the coal mining history.
Fitness: Good fitness required. You should have mountain biking experience.
This trip is also suited for less experienced bikers by staying on the gravel roads.
