Mjølkevegen – Cycling close to heaven

Get your hair all breezy and feel your senses come alive.

Mjølkevegen (The Diary Route) is the road where the fresh milk from the summer mountain farms is taken down to the dairies in the valley. This cycle route will give you everything the Valdres region has to offer!

No traffic jams – but you´ll might need to stop to let cows cross your path.

Mjølkevegen has been voted one of the most attractive cycling routes in Norway, and the entire official route stretches a total of 250 km in fresh mountain air and quiet landscape. 

It takes you through beautiful mountain and traditional farming landscapes, where you will get acquainted with many of our four legged friends such as sheep, cows and goats. You should also keep an eye out for reindeer grazing in some wilder areas.

You will cycle along enchanting rivers and mountain lakes, mainly on gravel roads, with occasional short legs along the main roads. The route covers some of the best highlights in the region, including the boat trip across Bygdin in Jotunheimen. The average time per leg is set to 4-5 hours, but some legs are shorter so you will also have time for some hiking opportunities along the way.
