driving routes

Hubriding is a concept where you stay in the hotel and enjoy new and exciting driving routes every single day.

HUBriding from Engø Gård Hotel & Restaurant

The beginning of what is today Engø Gård was Pihl's Pension - one of Tjøme's many summer boarding houses. It was the romantic Frithjof Pihl and his sister Daisy who opened a guest house on Engø in 1924. Frithjof's English wife Babs added British charm and elegance to the place. The same atmosphere lingers and is described by many as the "Engø feeling".

Engø Gård Hotel & Restaurant

Engø gård became part of De Historiske Hotel & Spisesteder in the summer of 2009. This is a unique member organization consisting of many of Norway's most charming hotels and restaurants. We are also proud to be one of 4 hotels in De Historiske's new concept. It was the romantic Frithjof Pihl and his sister Daisy who started a boarding house on Engø in 1924. Daisy took care of the summer guests and ran the rental, while Frithjof ran the farm and was otherwise a handyman.

Fun-factor and swing guarantee

The grid offers all kinds of challenges and those who want to play will find opportunities for it. As for the turn guarantee, it is not often we find such signs in Norway, but we have found them and made them available to you.

Hubriding means that you, based on one of the Historic Hotels, choose from many defined driving routes located in the surrounding hotel. The routes we offer run in some of Norway's very best terrain and include tens of thousands of turns, spectacular mountain passes, asphalt, gravel, wonderful nature experiences and the opportunity to eat well at local establishments. In the routes we have added sights and restaurants you can visit. You will be able to choose between routes and route combinations that make it possible to choose day stages with varying length and degree of difficulty. The trails can be combined and built as you wish. In other words, you can drive as much as you can on the surface and in the terrain you like best.

We have developed the concept because we like the motorcyclist as a guest group and for you to avoid tedious moves from hotel to hotel and tedious transport stages that take time. You should simply be able to spend your time on what you like best, just drive and enjoy Norway and all the great things we have to offer. Not least the opportunity to return to a well-known and established base to enjoy the good life, good food and drink and a staff that makes good arrangements for you and your needs as a motorcyclist. Exciting to leave the hotel - good to come back.

In the route network, we have arranged for you to be able to see the most interesting sights in Norway. These places have been carefully selected by local motorcyclists and hotel staff. Many of the sights are hidden gems and experiences that can only be experienced through Hubriding.

Should something happen to you, or your bike, along the way, we offer assistance as soon as possible. In the event of a breakdown, our partners will be able to ensure that you can get a rental bike the very next day. We have arranged for washing, lubrication and drying if necessary. If necessary, call your Hubriding hotel for assistance.
