3 days - Norway's most popular bike route, independent departures. Family friendly.

Rallarvegen is the most popular cycling route in Norway, and follows the hand-made service road used during the building of the Bergenbanen railway from 1895-1902. Rallarvegen follows the outskirts of the Hardangervidda Plateau, leads you along the Bergen Railway Line from Haugastøl via Finse, Hallingskeid, Myrdal and down to Flåm. The road by itself is an attraction, but it also brings you through a fantastic highland area starting at 1000 meters above sea level, peaking at 1222 meters for then to lead you back down to the fjords at sea level.

The road is 82 km long and the scenery varies immensely, from Arctic high mountain nature across Hardangervidda to the opulent green Flåmsdalen valley. Although the road standard is rather rough along the route, there is little or no tourist traffic, and there are some asphalted stretches here and there.

This trips is great for families and finishing in Bergen allows you to travel on to other regions of Norway with ease.

Day 2 - Biking ‘Rallarvegen’

After breakfast, continue the cycling trip along the railway construction road (Rallarvegen) to Myrdal and on to Flåm. The trip follows a well maintained gravel road through the Hardangervidda. Take your time to enjoy the fabulous scenery, and if you are lucky you might even spot wild reindeer in the area. You will pass by the Fagervatn Lake, which is the highest point of Rallarvegen at 1310m. In the summertime, a café is run in the Fagernut Dwelling, where you can buy freshly made waffles and coffee.

The terrain is reasonably flat with some up and down between Finse and Myrdal (38km). Then at Myrdal you will take off towards Flåm and follow the very steep downhill switchback path to the bottom of the Flåm Valley. These last 20km from Myrdal to Flåm offer stunning views down the valley following the Flåm Railway. Doing the trip by bike allows you to plan a leisurely trip with lots of photo opportunities that those travelling by train will miss.

The trip from Finse to Flåm is an good day-trip following the foot and bicycle path along the railway to Myrdal and down to Flåm valley. Distance: 55km. Drop off bike at the bike depot in Flåm and check into your hotel.

Lunch is a packed lunch.
