Norway

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.

Presentation

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 yourself 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 out that there is nothing better than floating saunas in the fjords in order to recover after a long biking day.

Here are several reasons why you should come ride 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.

So, what do you say: see you in Norway?

From and back to Oslo, this five-day point to point itinerary will take you to the capital’s North-West. An adventure between fjords, lakes, forests, and unforgettable gravel tracks, this is the perfect introduction to what Scandinavian gravel biking has to offer.

I will be travelling again with GravelUp and highly recommend the experience. The program was a good balance of scripted and flexible, not too full, but with beautiful offerings.

One of the best adventures of all time... I participated in a GravelUp trip and it was AMAZING. Wonderful team, they really took care of us and made sure we had the best time. It was my first time in Nice and my first time doing gravel, and I really enjoyed it. Each day was a different and exciting experience with a good balance of physical effort, beautiful scenery and routes, and good company. Not to mention the delicious and healthy food from the region. I will definitely "gravel up" again for a new adventure.

A unique experience of traveling and discovering extraordinary landscapes. Nature, sports, gastronomy - a wonderfully balanced mix by the organisers at Gravel Up.

This was my first experience on gravel and it could not have been a better destination to try it. The Gravel Up team were very welcoming, highly organised and confidently handled riders of quite varying abilities and fitness.

It says a lot for an event, and those who lead it, when the time off the bike is almost as good as time on the trails. I would recommend Gravel Up to anybody wanting to test themselves a little (or a lot!) and to enjoy great company and excellent food in the best surroundings.

This GravelUp trip was awesome...! An incredible experience of riding under the blue sky and close to the mediterranean sea with passionate people! Clearly the perfect break to disconnect and recharge the batteries!

Climbing mountains makes you happy ! This second experience with gravel up was awesome. Another group, another destination, and I could find the same atmosphere that only the GravelUp team is able to foster within just a weekend and between people who don’t know each other beforehand !
