You are in the mighty forests of northern Värmland. The area around The Lodge and Vägsjöfors offers 150 kilometers of signposted MTB trails in a beautiful and varied nature. There are also GPS tracks to follow during your warm-up cycling days. Since the joints have different degrees of difficulty, it is easy to combine the days together in a way that suits you and your training ambitions.

When you arrive at The Lodge in the afternoon you will be offered coffee and cake. You will have time to think through the activities of the coming days. One suggestion is that you post the cycling as described below. Dinner and good food are available in the immediate area!

Day 1

Welcome to The Lodge Torsby

Arrival at The Lodge Torsby bike MTB

You will arrive at The Lodge Torsby in the afternoon. After checking in, you are invited for coffee and homemade cake. Here you live in the middle of a scenic cycling area with everything from winding dirt roads to really tough mountain biking. You live in one of the nice rooms and can get help from the host couple to plan your cycling for the next few days.

Start by enjoying the lovely forest air and cycling the light blue trail (about 18 km) that goes on winding paths. After today's bike ride, you sleep well in one of the nice rooms.

Day 2

A real bike day in beautiful nature

You start the day with a delicious breakfast, and then it's time for a real bike day. The Green Round is just over 40 kilometers long, with cycling on both trails and dirt road (approx. 60%). It is a little tougher with almost 700 height meters that you have to get up.

The trail takes you through the warm countryside nature, and passes, among other things, some previous wolf digs. The scenery is incredibly beautiful. There is also access to wind protection where you can enjoy the tranquility, and maybe swim in one of the lakes.

Day 3

Challenge the technology with a favorite track

After a good night's sleep, it's time for breakfast at The Lodge. If you want to challenge the technology, you can choose the Red Trail which is just over 12 kilometers. Red difficulty may sound tough, but the red trail is a favorite for many! Here you can really develop as a cyclist. Whether you choose to ride at a slow pace or a little faster, you get a really nice cycling experience.

After lunch, you who are really good may want to try the Pink Trail. It is a 17 kilometer long challenge, even physically, in the form of many steep slopes. Another alternative is the Kristinafor trail which is just over 40 kilometers long. Here you get to experience the wilderness for real, and the wildlife around it. You cycle in many uphill slopes, through pine forests and pass the river Ljusnan. Then it is good to end the bike ride with a dip in the lake at The Lodge.

Time for a return trip

When you wake up, the breakfast is served, and we hope you have had many great cycling experiences these days! The leads we presented are a suggestion, and you've probably found some personal favorites.

Warm welcome back to Torsby and Värmland!

Gpx joints could not be downloaded to mobile. The trails could only be seen on the app trailforks. Era rek. On trails were good except Kristineforsleden as some parties were overgrown.
