The cycling opportunities in Alta and Finnmark are virtually endless. In winter beneath the Northern Lights and in the summer in the Midnight Sun. If you wish to explore roads, paths and trails on your own, you can safely rent a bike from us. Our equipment is top!
We offer mountain bike rentals, fatbikes and road bikes. All suitable for the conditions you will meet in the northernmost part of Europe!
We rent out mountain bikes, fatbikes and road bikes.
For mountain biking, we offer rental of the full suspension Trek Fuel EX 8 a dream trail performer!
With the GX Eagle group from Sram, 29 inch wheels and 130 mm Fox suspension forks, this bike handles every challenge with complete naturalness!
It is easy to ride, stable and will put a smile on your face!
We also rent bikes to people participating in Offroad Finnmark and other MTB competitions.
When you are riding on the road, it’s preferable to have a bike that is light, rigid and easy to ride and is equipped with mudguards and a luggage rack to attach bags and the like.
In collaboration with Tromsø Outdoor, we have chosen Merida Speeder 200 D. This bike is very easy to ride, responsive and strong enough to be able to load a lot on. It’s fine on gravel roads too.
Our road bikes are equipped with speedometer, odometer and pump.
The bikes can be equipped with panniers and racks for gear.
Two types of fatbikes; Nakamura and Hard Rocx. Both very suitable for the conditions you will meet in the European northernmost biking area.
Helmet is included in the rental price
GPS and maps
You have the option of renting a GPS with all maps of Finnmark pre-programmed or taking a paper map, which we will print free of charge. By the way, the GPS has many paths and tracks in Alta pre-programmed – and comes highly recommended!
