Finnskogen and Lake Røgden
2 980 NOK/pers (2 nights)
Finnskogen is an area of Norway and Sweden situated in the counties of Innlandet and Värmland, named so because of immigration of Finnish people in the 17th century. Finnskogen has very few inhabitants and very little car traffic, which gives safer cycling. Close to the Swedish border, in the deepest Finnskogen, you will find Finnskogtoppen SPA & Velværehotell.
This bike package package is suitable for cyclists who are in fair shape. You stay at Finnskogtoppen SPA & Velværehotell, a cozy hotel with tastefully decorated rooms. The location gives you silence and close contact with nature. All suites and double rooms at Finnskogtoppen wellness hotel have an absolutely wonderful view of the beautiful lake Røgden (does not apply to the apartments). All single and double rooms have a private bathroom. After a day on your bike, you can relax in the whirlpool and have a nice sauna.
Price weekdays: 2 980 NOK/person
Price weekends: 3 780 NOK/person
You arrive to Finnskogtoppen SPA & Velværehotell and check-in at the hotel. Maybe you want to relax in the whirlpool or take a tour on your bike before dinner.
After breakfast it is time to set off on the bike. On your way around Røgden, you will experience the calm and silence that many Finnskogen enthusiasts talk about. It is not a particularly demanding trip, but there will be a noticeable uphill the last 1.5 kilometers up to Finnskogtoppen at the end of the trip. Here you climb around 120 metres. The trip is not suitable for everyone, but if you are in fair shape it will not be a problem.
There are no restaurants on the round, but if you take a detour of 2.8 km from the junction at the west end of Røgden, it is easy cycling to Svullrya, which has both a cafe and a grocery store. Back at the hotel, spa facilities and a nice dinner await.
After a wonderful breakfast and fantastic experiences on the bike, it's time to go home. If you want to extend your journey with an extra night, there are many nice cycle tours to choose from in the area.
