Aursjøvegen Loop

This traditional circuit guides you through two of Norway’s hidden treasures: Eikesdalen and Litldalen valleys, both boasting awe-inspiring landscapes featuring towering waterfalls and pristine lakes. Covering approximately 75 kilometres of gravel, what distinguishes Aursjøvegen is its rugged terrain and remote setting, making it far from your typical cycling route.


Commencing from Sunndalsøra, cyclists embark on a gradual ascent along a deep, narrow valley. As elevation increases, the scenery intensifies, showcasing majestic cliffs and cascading waterfalls adorning the route. Amidst this breathtaking backdrop, Aursjø Lake emerges, nestled within the mountainous terrain, offering a picturesque spot for a well-deserved rest break. Following the challenging yet rewarding gravel and valley segments, the journey concludes along a conventional road to complete the loop. This is a Norwegian treasure tucked away from most tourists.
