Tour de Dovre - Route #2 (5-days)

Follow the same Tour de Dovre route, but we replace Trolltun with Toftemo accommodation for a slightly different package. The 132km tour offers the same fantastic views and the same cycling route.

Tour de Dovre is one of the best cycling routes Mountain-Norway has to offer. This 126 km long round-trip route takes you through beautiful mountain terrains, valleys and scenic farmlands, and through three National Parks; Rondane, Dovre and Dovrefjell. There are multiple highlights along the route; from travelling through the U-valleys of Gudbrandsdalen and Grimsdalen, to going moose and Musk Ox Safari to seeing the world famous Viewpoint Snøhetta. This route is perfect for those in average physical shape, with some cycling experience, and who want to experience the real Norwegian mountains.
