Tour de Dovre on bike
National park road
The newly constructed cycling road starts at Dombås public transport hub and runs 32 kilometers to Hjerkinn. The gateway to Dovrefjell National Park with its muskos, the Snøhetta mountain and world famous viewpoint with the same name. The bike path is a gravel road, and in itself a scenic velostrada totally free of motorized traffic. But with good public transportation at both ends.
The new cycle path is only the last piece in Gudbrandsdalens most beautiful round trip on two wheels. From the mountain lodge at Hjerkinn, a easy-traveled route continues along the little-traffic road down to Folldal. Here you can take a stop at the convenience store before you step into Grimsdalen. Many people think this is the country's most beautiful mountain valley. Flat mileage rolls easily while experiencing live farming culture minute by minute. You'll find accommodation and dining places along the way, and after a while you can see the beautiful cultural landscape in Dovre and Gudbrandsdalen.
