Hitfjell trail

When: June – October
Distance: approx. 17 km

A demanding trail which promises fantastic views and some of the finest flow trails around.

Starting from Pellestova follow the trail down to Malmtjønnet, a fast and flowy section with some twists and turns to keep you on your toes. Once your over the bridge at Malmtjønnet carry on up towards the road, following the signs for Reinsfjell. Once you have reached the road, you can either turn right…or…cross the road and follow the trail over Reinsfjell to kriksvika. This is not to be missed, a technical climb and burly descent (though perhaps one for the more skilled rider.)

Once at kriksvika, take the gravel road towards Indre Reine and turn off to the left by the red barn, following signs for Kriksfjell. The easiest and certainly one of the smoothest parts of  the trail, with a cracking decent to the bottom of Hitfjell.

Now the hard work begins! The trail up to the top of Hitfjell is technical and demanding but the reward at the end is worth it. The view out over Øyerfjellet and onward towards the Rondane and Jotunheim mountain ranges is simply sublime.

From here on its time to enjoy the fruits of your labour and let loose on one of Norway’s best flow trails. Point your bike down hill and don’t stop until you reach the fairly steep exit on to the gravel road at Hita.

From here on its an easy pedal along gravel roads, or, if your still feeling fresh, you can take the Malmtjønnet section in reverse back to Pellestova  and a well earned break and waffle in the cafe

Be aware! This trail is used by both walkers and bikers alike, so remember to show the proper etiquette and respect when riding.

Dress for the weather

Always pack some extra clothes should the weather turn nasty.

The weather in the mountains can be unpredictable and change in the blink of an eye. We  therefore implore all our guest top pack accordingly and ideally follow the three layer system: a base layer (t-shirt/thermal top), a mid layer (insulated jacket/fleece) and an outer layer (wind/water resistant shell).

Using three layers allows you to regulate temperature thus keeping you warm should the weather get cold or take one off to cool you down.

If you are planning to stop for lunch it is advisable to pack an insulated pad to sit on.
