Often it is nice to dream away from nature and most preferably on the bike saddle. Today it carries the dream of going to Torsby in northern Värmland, where we have asked some questions to Marc and Joanne who arrange bike packages for MTB cyclists and run the accommodation THE Lodge Torsby. With a magical environment and close connection to both the Klarälvsleden / Klarälvsbanan and the cycling area Biking Torsby, this is a perfect place to start from for the cycling MTB cyclist.
Hi Marc and Joanne! First, we are curious - you left the Netherlands (the country of cyclists already) and moved to Torsby, how are you? We enjoy nature, tranquility and nightlife. The Netherlands still has many opportunities for cycling and enjoying nightlife but there are also 18 million inhabitants. It is very much compared to Värmland with only 280,000 inhabitants!
In Torsby we also enjoy four seasons, love snow very much and are happy to go both slalom and length on Hovfjället. In other seasons, Hovfjällets' Nature Reserve has many opportunities for MTB cycling and hiking. Together with THE LODGE by the lake, it really feels like a real place to live every day! We are therefore happy to invite and share our place with guests from different countries.
You have a bike package with a focus on MTB. Can you tell us about it?Of course! We originally come from the Netherlands, love cycling and now run THE LODGE-Torsby with bike packages for MTB cyclists. Nearby there are very nice gravel and forest trails, which are perfect for enjoying an MTB experience - both as a beginner and for more advanced cyclists. All routes are marked and have different levels. The area around The Lodge and Vägsjöfors offers about 150 kilometers of signposted MTB trails in a beautiful and varied nature.
Yes, how would you like to describe the nature you ride in when you visit your areas in northern Värmland?
With wide expanse, wilderness, fresh air and physical movement, northwest Värmland is a paradise for MTB cycling. Here you will find the varied view of the water, fantastic views and the vast forests. Along the way there are also plenty of different places to enjoy peace and quiet, listen to the silence or take a little break. You get a wonderful feeling that does good for both body and soul when cycling in such a scenic cycling area.
Yes, you probably get all hungry on a bike holiday in Värmland!
