Hafjell - The mountain bike capital!
Hafjell offers fantastic opportunities for all types of biking; try out downhill biking in the iconic Bike Park, experience our pumptrack and skill center or enjoy endless mountain roads and trails in the alpine areas surrounding Hafjell.
Hafjell Bike Park
Downhill biking in Hafjell is a fun activity and for many people something new and exiting, meanwhile it is suitable for anyone who can ride a regular bike.
The concept is to use the ski lifts for transportation uphill, and then enjoy the downhill in the same way as when skiing or boarding in winter. Our 19 specially built trails curves down through the forest, and have fun elements adapted to all skill levels. The trails are graded from green to black difficulty level, where green is the easiest, and black is for the more experienced riders. We recommend using a downhill bike, but all mountain bikes with good suspension and hydraulic disc brakes can be used on our trails.
Hafjell Bike Park is open every weekend and everyday in mid summer. See our opening hours.
