So early this year we decided to do a trip to Hafjell resort. Accommodation and ferry are booked and everybodys waiting to get the wheels spinning already. We are a group of five or six people though one is only riding bikes on the touring/cross country side of things and is probably not even going to take his bike with him. Hence some questions Im sure there are quite some nice XC / enduro loops around the mountain. Anything that would be worth for the XC guy to bring his hardtail? And along with this question, my bro and me have not yet decided whether we will really need a full on DH bike or if the enduro bikes will be ok in respect to geometry and travel. On videos most stuff looks reasonably rideable and we are there to have fun and not be the fastest on the hill. So really not sure on the bike question On the pro enduro side we could also do one or another morning or evening spin with our XC mate. How fast and choppy is the park terrain? Is the slacker head angle of a DH bike mandatory up there? And how good in shape are the tracks in mid to end of July? Thinking of breaking bumps etc. What else is there around? Anything a tourist shouldnt pass on? Like wrestling with a moose or bear? We will travel by car so we are quite mobile. Any local gems there? Cafes, restaurants, bars? Hikes, waterfalls, stunning views, good spots for swimming etc.? As one of us is a tattoo artist I think some artsy stuff or tattoo shops would also be appreciated. Really any hint is welcome. I hope some Norwegian monkeys will chime in. Or anybody that has been there already. Thanks so far.
