Tour description​​​​ and experiences along the way
A beautiful trip that can be cycled from either Harestua or Thorbjørnrud Hotell in Jevnaker.
The trip goes across the northernmost part of Nordmarka. From Harestua, it climbs on asphalt for the first few kilometers before the rest of the trip is on gravel roads. No staffed serving en route. The trip can easily be combined with a hike to Nordmarka's highest peak; Svarttjernshøgda (717 m). If you want to go on this tour, park your bike at Tversjøstallen and follow the blue-marked path.

On arrival in Jevnaker, you can take a well-deserved coffee break or lunch stop at one of Hadeland Glassverk's eateries before cycling back to Harestua. You can follow the same route or cycle via Kalvsjø: follow route 7 from Jevnaker to Kalvsjø, then follow route 10 back to Harestua. You can of course also spend the night in comfortable beds at Thorbjørnrud Hotell and cycle back the next day.

The trip is listed on the Cycle Map for Hadeland. The map can be bought from local hotels, or ordered from the tourist office in Gjøvik - tel. 611 46 710.
The "Fritudshubben" in Harestua rents out good e-bikes. Here you can also buy (bicycle) maps.
