Rallarvegen is the most popular cycling route in Norway, offering both a historical and close-to-nature adventure. The road was hand-made and used as a transportation route during the building of the Bergenbanen railway from 1895-1902. All along the route you will come across preserved cultural treasures from this period, like railway workers barracks and stone bridges.
The road is 82 km long and the scenery varies immensely, from arctic high mountain terrain at Hardangervidda, to the opulent green Flåmsdalen valley. Although the road standard is rather rough along the route, there is little or no tourist traffic, and there are some asphalted stretches here and there.
As the hotels in Finse and Flåm can be fully booked during the summer season, it is important to book this tour early in advance.
