Syklist velkommenExciting bike ride from Matre. You’ll get to experience all of what Fjord Norway has to offer in the way of narrow valleys, fjords and majestic mountains. All in one day.,

THE PACAGE: The tour includes bike rental (incl. bike bag, helmet, lights and tool kit), info pack (overview map, info), and entrance to the Bjorn West Museum.

Matre is easily reached by Express Bus from the Bus Station in Bergen (Terminal P) or from Sogn. Both payed and Gravel roads.

Utsikt over Matredalen og Brudalsfossen på Fossen.Alt 1 Stordalen: Bicycle rental at Matre. Entrance to the Bjorn West Museum. You will cycle into the Matredalen Valley, up to Stordalen Mountain Lodge were it possible to by dinner. On the way you’ll pass one of Norway's best bouldering areas. By Hummelfossen falls we recommend a trip up to Stegane farm before you’ll pass the gorge called "Hell" and begin the climb up the winding Fossesvingene road. When you arrive at the Stordalen Ski Center, most of the climb is done before you check in at the mountain lodge. You are now in the area where resistance group Bjorn West participated in the last battles in Europe during World War II, and a visit to the Bjorn West Museum before departing Matre is highly recommended. Little traffic, no tunnels. (Route 1 - 17 km - 500 m-a-s-l).

We also recomend the gravel road to Stølsvatnet (Route 3 - 18 km ekstra), or the payed road up to Nystølen (10 km eksta - 700 masl)

If you are in short of time we recomend transport up to the mountain. Biking there and down again. Ask for prize.

Alt 2 Haugsdalen: Follow the old road along the fjord from Matre. Then up the valley Haugsdalen under the E39 Bridge and in to the mountain. The payed road end, and the rest is a service road with gravel. At the end you reach lake Svartavatnet high in the mountain 800 masl. In this area it is nice soft rock for cycling and single track cycling.

Bike rental i Matre at BergFritid, also Bike trailer and trailer cycle.If you have children we recoment transport by your own car, or by us up to the mountain and biking down again. Many nice stops and bathing places along the road. We also have bike trailer and trailer cycle for rent.
