Forest to Fjord Bike Tour

Inquire Booking

A unique experience in Europe! The four hour bike tour leads through an immense wilderness called the marka, full of wild berries, dozens of lakes, moose, and stunning views of Oslo and the fjord below. We even have time to stop at a traditional farm complex in the middle of the forest which now serves as a café and restaurant. After experiencing Oslo's wilderness, the ride returns to the city along a river path, passing numerous waterfalls. Nearly the entire bike tour is in car-free areas.
