According to the outdoor-scene's law, in the summer, mountain bikers are happiest where free riders and ski tourers run riot in the winter. And vice versa. This is true in the Alps as well as in Norway.

Lyngen, Norway's hottest freeriding and ski touring region, is very much to our taste when it comes to skiing. Now we want to check it out on our bikes as well, which will make us absolute trend-setters. Biking in Norway is still pretty new and special. If you're looking for wide, smooth fire roads for the climb, like the ones that exist in the Alps, you'll be disappointed. You have to work hard, pedal and often even hike your bike to the top. When you’ve reached the top you'll feel like when you take the skins off your skies in winter: incredible views over mountains and fjords offer a taste of the grand descent on flowy and technical trails down to the beach. The setting - the ocean, the fjords, nature's play of colors and sometimes a rainbow which lasts for hours- is sovereign and incomparable to the winter perspectives.

Both winter and summer feelings are grand and memorable ones. One should experience both. We will spend our nights in small but comfortable huts by the sea, including half-board and sauna. The cold dip in the ocean after a sauna session will be the icing on the cake during this incomparable bike trip.

Duration 8 days / 7 nights

Due to weather conditions and participant wishes, we adjust the chosen trails daily.

Bike rides in Norway are not comparable to the ones in the Alps. Before you can hop on your bike for the downhill, you have to pedal, carry or hike your bike to the top. On the downhill we will find ourselves on the less traveled, technical trails.
The descent offers stunning views and impressions of the unique landscape. Sometimes we will go on several smaller rides on one day, so that we maximize our experience of the fjords on Northern Norway. The weather can change quickly and we might start out in pouring rain and end our day with the sun warming up our descent to the ocean.
We will lodge in small fishing huts right by the sea and can enjoy delicious local food.
Besides biking we want you to experience the unique landscape, the far-out feeling and the certainty to experience something very special with this program.

Sufficient strength and fitness to manage approximately 1,000 vertical meters of ascent and downhill per day. Safe and confident bike handling on trails with an S2-3 rating. Experience on alpine trails (sure-footedness) and in handling short pushing or carrying passages. Sometimes it makes sense to do two shorter rides on one day.

Well-maintained bike: all-mountain full suspension (at least 120mm of travel) or an Enduro bike, bike backpack, helmet and protectors. You will receive further information and a detailed list of equipment after your registration.
