Start the trip with Krossobanen

The beginning of the cycling tour is very special, because the first North-European cable car, Krossobanen, whisks you up from Rjukan to the starting point at 886 meters.

Day 1

The packed lunch and tickets are handed out at Rjukan Tourist office. 

From the tourist office in the town center there are 2 km drive up to Krossobanen cable car. At Krossobanen you will find a large and free parking lot. 

Krossobanen brings you and your bike up to the starting point at 5 minutes. The Krossobanen is running the whole day from 08 - 20. Bikes will be prioritized the first two hours. 

The bike ride starts with a 2 km long hill. This is the hardest part. After this it is slightly hilly. The distance to Kalhovd Tourist cabin is 30 km. On the crossing at Kalhovd Tourist cabin, you follow the road to the left. After 8 kilometers you will arrive at Synken. From here the boat MB Mårfjord brings you across lake Mårvatn.

Please remember to check the time schedule in advance, since it only has one departure in the evening. The captain can arrange to lock in your bicycles. The boat trip takes about 40 minutes.
You will stay the night at Mårbu tourist cabin, and the following day you will return to Synken and your bikes.

Day 2:

Enjoy a nice breakfast and make your self a packed lunch to bring. When the boat has returned to Synken, you will find your bikes.

The return can go the same way, or you can cycle via Atrå and along the main road back to Rjukan. A total of 60 km. 

Please notice that after approx. 20 km from Kalhovd to Atrå, you reach the main road. Here there is no cycling path, so be aware of the traffic.
