It is recommended that GPS is set to select the fastest route and any avoidance turned off in order for the route to be calculated as described.

The trip around Svinslåa just west of Kvitfjell is a lovely warm-up lap in eftassol where you start and end on asphalt, but have many miles of incredibly nice mountain roads on gravel.

You start north on the back road and continue straight into the "corkscrew" on the road towards Musdalsseter. Remember to close the gate behind you on the road as there are grazing animals in the area.

After passing the beautiful Musdalseter hyttegrend, the trip continues north past Roåker and Bånsætra before turning a short trip down the valley again and then towards Kvitfjell Vest. If it's time for coffee, a stop at Tyrihanstunet is recommended. Further north on Svinslåvegen, you should be aware of grazing animals and make sure to close the gates behind you.

Between Svinslåa seter and Søre Lia seterveg there are several fun and slightly more technical sections. Up towards Fagerøy, the gravel road is wide and the driving conditions are good. About 2 km south of the Fagerøy junction, we recommend a short photo stop at the viewpoint.

The tour continues past Skei with a possible stop at Skeistua seterkafe. The route then heads home via Øverbygdsvegen towards Follebu church before heading back towards Øyer and Nermo. There are some technical sections before you descend towards the valley floor again.
