If you like the rough trails around Geilo and want to connect the south and north side of the valley in the same trip then "the whole enchilada" could be something for you.
Take the next step: Indulge in a 6-8h trip excursion of raw mountain biking and nature experience.
Geilo's answer to Moab's "whole Enchilada" is physically and technically highly demanding and contains everything from hike-a-bike to black graded downhill. Trail grading is blue to black (intermediate to expert, some downhill/ uphill sections will be walked).
To do a whole day trip around Geilo you need to be a fit and accomplished trail rider.
We do not have "easy" trails on the highlands. If you do not like rocks, mud and hike-a-bike sections then this is not for you. Yes, we know, on the pictures the trails look easy, smooth and flat, but be assured the trails are NOT easy, smooth or flat!
We promise: Magnificent landscapes, views of Hardangervidda and Hallingskarvet, rocky, muddy, technical trails and a certified MTB-guide. We think that trips like these are what mountain biking is all about. A potentially very rewarding and memorable experience for every dedicated mountain biker.
The ride is almost all above treeline in very exposed landscape. The weather can change quickly.
We will have a break in Ustaoset and/ or Tuva Tourist Hut, approximately halfway.
There is a supermarket and petrol station in Ustaoset where we can buy more food and drink if needed.
With some gravel and road riding included the trip can be ridden as one big loop Geilo to Geilo.
Car transport to the trailhead is an option, either with your own car or with transport arranged by us (additional costs, not included in the price).
Please note: Helmet is mandatory. Body armour is recommended. The bike that you ride needs to be in good condition (check gear system, brakes, tires, suspension etc). Participation is at your own risk.
