The trip is around 9 km each way. The road goes through dramatic and beautiful scenery, with views of the canyon and the valley of Vestfjorddalen. The trip is a bit steep at the beginning, but well worth the effort.

2. Cycle to Hjerdalen
The route passes through an idyllic mountain valley, where there once was a thriving alpine pasture farming community. It is about 8 km each way. The river Hjerdøla runs through the valley, where children might like to cast a line and see whether they can catch a fish or two. It is also a very nice area to put up a tent and is suitable for families with children.

3. Cycle along Skarfoss
This is a route for mountain bikes, with rolling hills and challenging terrain before you hit the road at Skarfossdammen. You have to cross a wooden bridge at the east end of Norsk Hydro's cabin site at Frøystul, in order to get on the road. The trip is around 12 km.

4. Cycle to Varland
