We find great pleasure in walking, biking and skiing in the nature ourselves, and we can offer you first hand knowledge about our trips. We set up most of them ourselves and tested them as well, so we can therefore give you detailed information about the trips, the level of difficulty, the accommodation sited, etc. when you book one of our tours.
The development of the company came step by step. From 2-3 bike trips and procurement of farm vacations limited to the counties of Hedmark and Oppland in 1998, we have expanded and now offer bike-trips in most parts of Norway, as well as hiking- and ski-tours from hotel to hotel with luggage transport.
