One Percent for the Planet

A program co-created by GravelUp and Fara Cycling

We’ll meet in the Norwegian capital, located between the Oslofjord and the forests of Oslomarka.

What to expect on the bike? 3 days of exploration from our base camp, totalling about 160 km and 2000 meters of elevation gain, on varied terrains but without technical passages. A course suited for gravel beginners and occasional cyclists. The spirit of the trip: "we leave together, we return together!"

Base camp: situated at 350 meters on the heights of Oslo, our superb accommodation (dating back over a century!), overlooks the capital. It offers a unique view of the city and the fjord. Our hosts will introduce you to their culture and will demonstrate an exceptional sense of hospitality. Norwegians know how to entertain and share the love for their land.

Beyond biking: our stays are not limited to gravel biking. We invite you to let go! Well-being moments – yoga, meditation relaxation – and of course, a visit to the famous Scandinavian sauna are on the agenda. Explore picturesque villages, soak up their charm, and taste the local cuisine.

Date range:
June - August
3 days / 3 nights
Daily distance:

End of a top 4-day weekend in Oslo. Wonderful group and atmosphere. Sublime trails, picture-postcard scenery. 4 outings, each more varied and beautiful than the last. Excellent organization by Olivier and Monica. Long live Gravel Up, it was the first time for me but I've become yet another fan. See you soon (maybe in the Vosges for my VGS badge).
