GUIDED ACTIVITIES

We offer guided bike rides in different places in Dalsland and at different levels. Please read about recommended level of fitness and also what kind of bike to use. E-bikes are more than welcome.

We take you on some of the best backcountry roads Dalsland has to offer. Varied terrain in stunning nature, we ride along beautiful lakes and through dense forests. Every ride has been carefully chosen to maximize the level of experience of the Dalsland terrain and variation in nature. The rides are both beautiful and great to ride but be prepared for all the rolling hills and tough short climbs :-)

Each tour has an experienced guide who keeps the group together and no one is left behind - everyone will finish. All guides has first aid training and bring firs-aid kits. Bikes can be booked online on this website.

On some tours there is the opportunity to buy coffee and lunch. Not always during the ride, but then you can buy before or after. Of course, you can also bring the energy you need yourself. In warm weather, there is also the opportunity for a quick dip in a suitable lake!

We ride in all weathers so please wear appropriate clothing. If the number of registered participants are to low the guided tour will be cancelled. We offer money back or the opportunity to participate at another guided tour. 

Please note that bike rental and fika/lunch are not included in the price. Maximum of 10 participants.
