A program co-created by GravelUp and Fara
We’ll meet in Oslo, the Norwegian capital located between the Oslofjord and the Oslomarka forests, where you will discover the city and get kitted out with our partner Fara cycling. Fara makes gravel bikes built for Scandinavian trails and you will love riding them during these five days of adventure.
Once you’re fully equipped, we’ll start our expedition by bikes, crossing the Nordmarka, the forest at the edge of Oslo’s Northern border. You will immediately feel immersed in nature! Our itinerary will then take us to the North-West, towards Honefoss, Gol and Bygdin, before arriving in Lillehammer.
Over these five days, you will ride through typical villages and their red houses, speed down the Milky Road and cycle through gorgeous forests and alongside deep fjords. Quite the change of scenery!
Our guide will introduce you to the Norwegian culture and to this unique gravel experience; they will show you the perfect places to enjoy these fantastic tracks, while improving your riding. Our goal is for you to be as comfortable as possible and to enjoy the lakes and forest-filled landscapes.
Our passionate hosts will happily share their their love for their land with you. We will sleep in cozy mountain lodges equipped with all the mod cons you need after a beautiful day on the bike. Relaxing moments will allow you to disconnect, with yoga, meditation, relaxation - and of course, the famous Scandinavian sauna. They will be key to helping you take it all in and enjoy this unique experience to the fullest.
This is an unforgettable expedition in the Great North, in the middle of nature, where adventure is always around the corner. You will discover a territory, and a lifestyle, where nature, sports and wellness hold a very special place.
