Get a taste of what makes mountain biking so popular without needing to spend a full day on the bike seat. You can choose between an electric or standard mountain bike, which makes it easy to go on a trip with family and friends without everyone having the same starting point for the activity.
Alta is a mountain biking Mecca with a network of natural tracks and scenic gravel roads. You will find smooth flow trails, technical descents and demanding up hills, as well as unique plateau cycling. However, what is lacking is signs and updated maps. This is the perfect activity for those wishing to try something together. Perhaps you will get a new hobby in the process.
What will we experience?
A long list of wonderful biking trails is hidden in the Alta Valley. Some trails and tracks are well known and are many people’s favourites, while others are hidden gems that few use. Our guides know the trails and tracks like the back of their hands.
We can choose from everything from gentle single tracks with good flow, such as Jorra Trail and Kaffemokka, to more technically demanding trails such as Sonja Kristins Cocktail, Kaiskuru and Altaelva Øst. Mountain biking on Raipas gives good flow and an endless landscape, but biking around the lake Gakorivannet gives you slick rock cycling and to finish, if you want single-track with lots of roots and stones, Mosesens bakgård is the place for you. The challenges will be adapted to suit the participants’ skills.
We will stop along the way, light an open fire at a nice spot and serve freshly brewed coffee and snacks!
Who is it aimed at?
If you are wishing to get a taste of what mountain biking, this is the perfect activity to do together with a group of friends or family members. It’s also aimed those wanting a shorter version of the full-day trip because you think that sounds too demanding or you simply don’t have time for that.
This tour is also aimed at those wanting to discover new MTB opportunities in the area or those who just want to try mountain biking and experience the Alta nature from the bike seat!
If you prefer an electric, full suspension MTB bike, upgrade when you book.
