This is a 2 day bike tour, where we bike the spectacular Aursjøveien. This road is famous for being tougher than Trollstigen, but it is perfect for biking, since there are almost no traffic here. A hidden secret, we make available for you!
We start at Sunndalsøra, and the first day is uphill through the valley "Litldalen". When we reach the top, we follow the gravel road all the way into the mountain plateu and stay at the cabin Aursjøhytta for night.
The next day, we start easy with some fairly flat area in beautiful surroundings, before we bike all the way down to Eikesdalen. Here we will make a stop at Aurstupet and the waterfall Mardalsfossen. Here we will have pick up, and we will take you back to Sunndalsøra.
Day 1: We will meet in Sunndalsøra at 9:00AM, for a quick check of the bike and our equipment. The tour starts from Sunndalsøra, with a bike up the dramatic valley of Litldalen. The lunch will be enjoyed en-route, during the day. We will make several stops along the road towards Aursjøhytta. The climb from sea level to 860 meters over sea level can be challenging, but we will move slowly and consistently up the hills. Our luggave will be transfered to the cabin.
