Located 195 kilometres inside the Arctic Circle, Abisko National Park has a varied landscape that changes throughout the seasons. This is one of the most popular national parks of Sweden. The park is a part of the majestic forested valley surrounded on three sides by the Abisko Alps and the vast lake Torneträsk in the north. The National Park also stretches further south into the mountains where it encompasses the lake Abiskojaure, connected to Torneträsk by the Abiskojokka river. Abisko national park is renowned for the possibility to see the northern lights. There is a small chance to see them in mid-august.

The trip between Abiskojaure and Abisko tourist station follows a great trail for anyone with a bit of experience of trail cycling. Varied trails with sand, hardpacked dirt, and wooden planks over the marshes.

Day 6

Narvik

Rune Dahl / visitnarvik.com / Rune Dahl / visitnarvik.com /

There are approximately 22,000 inhabitants in the town of Narvik. Narvik is situated 68 degrees north, 220 km within the arctic circle – and one of the most northerly towns in the world. Narvik is surrounded by a beautiful fjordlandscape and the Narvik mountain that offers excellent downhill biking and skiing, with a vertical drop of over 900 meters.

Today we have a few options depending on the weather. In dry conditions we will bike the legendary Reinesfjellet. There are three options today.

Skjomen
The slab nirvana Reinesfjellet

This is as much of a natural experience as a cycling trip. Definitely visit if you want to experience something out of the ordinary. We create our own trip, from granite slabs to dirt trails. The views of the Skjomen fjord are stunning. The descent is a treat. You will need how to handle steep descents. Difficulty level: 4/5 – demanding. We will only attempt this trip under dry contitions. Length: Ca. 20 kilometer. Total elevation: Ca. 680 meters.

Verdenssvaet in Efjord
Fantastic cycling among dramatic mountains.

Verdenssvaet in Efjord is a smaller edition of Reinnesfjellet in Skjomen. The hill is a continuous slab of granite with views that will take your breath away. We can reach the top in half an hour. The substrate is comparable to coarse sandpaper, giving you plenty of traction. Avoid the darker patches, as these may be wet and slippery. At the top there is ample space for play. We can treat ourselfes to a dip in the water pool nearby. Again this trip should only be attempted when in dry conditions.

Narvikfjellet
The local mountain. The facilities of Narvikfjellet offer downhill cycling for different levels, from beginners to World Cup-grading.
