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.

My friends offered me a 5-day gravel trip in Norway with GravelUp. It was a wonderful experience that I highly recommend to all cycling enthusiasts looking for a change of scenery and a good atmosphere. Top-notch organization and super-friendly team. Thank you Thomas G.

I adore GravelUp, simply put. To date, I've had three trips with them, all fantastic client experiences and great places to ride. I will be back for more. Well-thought-out routes, caring and attentive managers and guides, great food, and all about the joy of the sport instead of just watts. Highly recommended!

An Unforgettable Cycling Adventure! I joined as a guide and had the pleasure of five days with great cyclists from US and France, getting to know them and riding the great roads of Norway with them. What Olivier and his team have created is so good, I love the atmosphere!

The photos on the website describing the 5-day adventure in Norway made us want to take part in this trip. The "real" landscapes are even more magical and majestic! Firstly, bravo to Gravel up for all the initial organization, and secondly for their ability to adapt!
