We will depart from our Norwegian partner Fara cycling’s base located in the heart of Oslo, where they make state of the art gravel bikes built for the trails of the Great North. Their passionate team will welcome you to their cycling centre and kit you out for the next three days of adventure. 

Check out on the Fjord and the trendy area of Grunerlokka. We will follow the Akerselva, this little river that goes through the city, to escape the centre and reach the Nordmarka forest located North of the city.

In only a few kilometres ride you will find emerged in pine wood forests and perfect gravel tracks. Welcome to Gravel paradise made in Oslo! Hundreds of kilometres of only gravel routes and trees, perfect immersion for your day 1 in Norwegian nature.

Lunch break will be in kikutstua, a typical lodge located by a lake, where locals love to stop during a day of riding, hiking or even snowing in winter time.

Back at the hotel end of day, right on time to enjoy the sun going down on the capital city.

For day 2 we will head south, pass the city through its major parks and follow the fjord towards Svartskog. Amazing views of the city before diving into forests and islands for the rest of the day.  

It’s a very different part of Oslo and its neighborhood we will discover. Discovering amazing neighborhoods along the fjord, you will discover how cool life is, deep in nature few km from the city center. 

Oslo is definitely a capital city immersed in nature between the forests and the fjord. And Norwegian live along with nature and outdoor activities. The idea of day 2 is the share with you this local passion for nature and love for the Outdoors. 

We will be back in town by the ferry to offer another vision of the city and go straight to the local must do activity: sauna on the fjord. 

After this relaxing moment, it’s time for a drink and some food in one of the trendiest places in Oslo, still by the Fjord… live like a local! 

Departing form our hotel, straight into Nordmarka, we will bring you to the lake area of this forest. Hidden gravel routes that our guides only have the secret. Be ready for full immersion in pine forest and Norwegian nature. 100% gravel routes for day 3, you will love it!

Late Lunch in another typical place with view on the Fjord before saying goodbye to this incredible city you will definitely fall in love with…
