Program Tour East:
Sunday: Dinner at Farm Karset.
Monday: After a solid breakfast on the farm, we split the day in 2 stages. Stage 1 takes us on well maintained dirt roads from the farm to Gudbrandsdalen (100 km). We stop a few times to admire the view and maybe take some pictures of the wavy landcape. After dropping our luggage at the mountain hotel, we do stage 2 with lighter bikes. We enter areas with tracks and trails and more technical riding than on the previous stage. The viewpoints are even more spectaculare as we ride the ridges above the valley. We spend our first night at a cosy mountain hotel with local beer and traditional food.
Tuesday: We’re heading north! Partly on the famous Peer Gynt Road, but mostly on more unknown roads around it, as we enter the biggest mountain range of Norway, Jotunheimen. On our way we will do several great tracks in stunning surroundings. If the roads feels to busty, there is always a way around, but if you do them, you will never regret! In the evening we enter our next place for overnight, and the dinner is barbeque with a cold can of something good.
Wednesday: The Blue Mountain (Blåhøe) kick starts our day with excellent view and a lovely ride up and down. And if you think you have seen something amazing from the peak of the mountain, your imagination of beauty will reach new hights as we enter the valley Grimsdalen. “Grim” actually means ugly, but this valley is the absolut opposit of that. When we come out of the valley we go directly in to an area made for fun for gravel bikers. Sand, rocks, hills, streams, moss, you name it. It’s all there for us as we transport ourselves to our next hotel, which has a sauna, spa and wellness center with warm pools.
Thursday: This is another day with lighter bikes. We leave the luggage at the hotel and just enjoyes everything this area can offer for adventure riders. The guide knows the area very well, so the program will always be suited the groups level, wishes, mood etc. We only guarantee one single thing: the riding will be great!
Friday: We direct our front wheels southward, and of course on totaly different tracks from where we arrived. If we feel for it, we include another mountain peak on our way, before we ride along the river through rural areas down the valley. After a while we cross over to another valley following a looooong track loaded with pure happiness. The Roller coaster, that’s what we call one of the tracks where we stop to have a fast and furious race to the end of it. If you don’t smile on your way up and down this one, you maybe should concider a Harley and Route 66…
Finally we enter another area with lovely scenery, following a winding river south towards our last hotel, which normally is an old farmhouse with more traditional food made from the owner herself.
Saturday: Everything comes to an end, but real adventurers take the oportunity to take the slow and bumpy way back to the farm. We are now only 70 km from our starting point at Farm Karset, but in our way of riding, it takes a couple og hours to get back. Due to the fact that our last accommodation is pretty close to the Swedish border, most Swedish guests say “Hej då” (Bye bye in Swedish) already in the morning and turns directly back home. But, the rest of us will arrive at Farm Karset in the middle of the day, with plenty of time to start on your way back home, where ever you come from. Hopefully the smile on your face will last for days, and your memories for ever.
