The Scandes

Visit the fjords, lakes, and forests in the Scandinavian mountains between June and August. From Oslo to the Northern territories, discover the gravel highways and a simple lifestyle, close to nature.


In partnership with Fara Cycling, come and explore Norway’s capital and its surrounding area. You will be kitted out in their cycling center and provided with locally designed gravel bikes that are perfectly suited for the Scandinavian trails. 

From the moment you leave Oslo, prepare for a total immersion in nature, crossing endless forests and crystal-clear lakes that are ideal for a refreshing break.

This is a dream destination, where gravel biking is the best way to eat up kilometers of five star tracks without seeing a single car. We will take you to typical huts, like in Kikutstua where you can enjoy a heart shaped Vaffel (Norwegian waffle). You will find that the best recovery after a day ride is to jump into a fjord after a break in a floating sauna.

Here’s just a few reasons why you should come ride here with us:

  • Everything is included. You just need to bring your best smile and we’ll take care of the rest!

  • A local guide for the entire trip.

  • Quality bikes to hire from our local brand partner Fara Cycling, either standard or electric.

  • Experience Scandinavia like never before with yoga, wellbeing and local wine/food tastings.
