Zur Buchungsanfrage

This is a 2-day bike tour along the spectacular Aursjøveien. This road is famous for being tougher than Trollstigen, but it is perfect for biking. Very little vehicle traffic, amazing scenery and some nice leg burning up and downhills. 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 plateau and stay at the cabin Aursjøhytta for the night. 

The next day, we start easy biking through fairly flat plateau terrain with beautiful natural surroundings. After crossing the plateau, we descend all the way down to Eikesdalen. Here we will make a stop at Aurstupet and the waterfall called Mardalsfossen. You will be picked up at Mardalsfossen, for transport back to the starting point in Sunndalsøra.
