On the way up you have a perfect view to the summit of Mount Dalsnibba at 1 500 meters above sea level. The ride up by car and the descent by bike offers panoramic views that includes the village of Geiranger, the fjord with its steep cliff and waterfalls, glacial peaks and the wild Flydal River Valley. At Djupvasshytta Mountain Lodge 1 030 meters above sea level the second part of your adventure awaits you, the Sky to Fjord Downhill Bike Tour! Once we have set you up with your gear and bike, you have the freedom to come down the public road as fast or as slow as you want, the choice is yours.
