This roundtrip, also named one of the most beautiful cycling trips of the Gudbrandsdalen valley, takes you through some of Norway`s most awe-inspiring landscapes. Pedal your way through this dramatic scenery, where snow-capped peaks meet lush valleys, and pristine lakes mirror the clear blue sky. Every turn offers a postcard-worthy view. Iconic mountains, idyllic cultural landscapes and the beautiful Grimsdalen valley with its old mountain farms.

The trip touches the border of three National Parks:
Dovrefjell-Sunndalsfjella National Park extends westwards with its deep valleys and jagged mountains and with rolling landscapes to the east. Includes the mountain range Snøhetta.
You circle Dovre National Park, established as late as 2003 to protect unspoiled areas for some of Norway`s last wild reindeer.
Rondane National Park is Norway`s oldest National Park, established in 1962. It is named after the majestic Rondane Massif.

Musk ox in the Dovre mountains:
It was introduced in 1947, after several unsuccessful attempts, from Greenland to Norway. It tolerates the cold and the snow in harsh conditions at Dovrefjell very well. It is both related to the sheep and the ox. Over the past 20 years, the number of musk oxen has increased and in the winter 2019 there were about 240 animals at Dovre mountain plateux. Even so, the musk oxen population is threathened by several hazards such as illness, warmer climate, train collisions and also too many people getting too close.

Do not disturb it unnecessary and do not get closer than 200 meters from it. The musk ox is a peaceful herbivore and does not care about humans if left alone. It can also seem like it`s both fearless and tame when you walk past it. But do not be fooled, this is a wild animal with an unusual defense strategy. The best way to safely see the musk ox, is by joining a guided musk ox safari.
