Hurtigruten - "Die schönste Seereise der Welt"
Excellent long-distance ride through varied terrain and beautiful scenery. Steady climb from about halfway along the route. Skeikampen – Frøysesetrene – Olstad – Austlid – Skeikampen
The route starts at Skeikampen Velkomstsenter, and leads uphill to the west along the Peer Gynt Route. After climbing for approx. 2.5 km, turn left towards Frøysesetrene. Continue past Systuggusetra, and then along the eastern side of Dørja down to Olstad. Turn left onto route 255, and ride on tarmac for approx. 2 km.
Turn left towards "bua", and follow this road uphill for 1.5 km. Turn left at the crossroad, and continue towards Austlid. After approx. 6 km, turn left at the T-junction, ride up and across the hill, and then down towards Austlid Fjellstue. As you reach the bottom of the hill, keep left at the crossroads and follow Veslesetervegen back to Skeikampen.
Excellent ride in either direction, but the most common is anti-clockwise as described above.
