Bicycling

Cykel, cykling, mountainbike i Dalarna på Älvdalens CampingBicycling in Älvdalen

In the surroundings of Älvdalen is a wide and varied scope of biking roads and paths. The terrain is at times hilly so we recommend that you use a bicycle with multiple gears. As a mountain biking resort Älvdalen is still relatively unexploited but here are many options suitable for the beginners as well as those in search of more technically advanced cross-country terrain.

There are bicycles for hire and you can book in advance through Turistbyrån. Visitors with limited knowledge of the area should consider booking a guide who will take you to the terrain you want to avoid spending the day just searching. Guides can also be booked through Turistbyrån

In August MTB weekend events are organised and the summer programme also includes biking events for girls, and for families. Everyone is just as welcome, including novices. There are also packages available comprising accommodation, meals and bike rental.
