Terms and Conditions
The region of Hardanger offers back country style riding with an incredible backdrop. The area is relatively unexplored from a mountain biking point of view but has huge potential. We have uncovered the best routes the area has to offer, whilst adding to it with our own hand built trails. The area is sparsely populated, meaning it is easy to feel remote and miles away from civilisation. We want to take you out of your comfort zone and into the wilds of Norway, far from the groomed nature of the bike parks and trail centres.
As the trails are spread out all across the mountain sides of Hardangerfjord there is a good variety of riding. From great expanses of granite slabrock 1500m above the sea, ridgelines of technical rocky singletrack to freshly cut loamy corners down in the pine forests. There is something for all tastes!
The rugged landscapes of Norway offer somewhat technical riding, meaning you ideally already have some mountain biking experience and have good bike control in rough terrain.
Good fitness is required for riding with us. Although we would love to uplift every trail, the remote nature of the area means some trails are only accessible by riding or hiking up.
Only some of the trails we ride are fully uplifted. We will always take you as far as possible with our uplift van, however the remote nature of many of the trails we ride makes it impossible to go by van all the way to the top.
Sometimes we pedal up, sometimes we push and sometimes there's a bit of a hike-a-bike. For us, getting to the top is part of the experience and makes these bits of golden single track feel even more exclusive.
We will make sure to plan your week of riding to make it as mixed as possible and to cater to your requests and group fitness level.
Historically most trails found in the Norwegian mountains are old access trails used for transporting the animals between the winter and summer farms. If you see an old farm down by the fjord side, it is sure to have a smaller and much more primitive sibling up on the nearest mountain top, a summer farm.
These trails have today turned into hiking trails, been replaced by roads or sometimes fallen into disuse. We ride hiking trails, but have also put a lot of work into finding, repairing and opening up old trails that were no longer used.
