driving routes

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

Hubriding in Telemark

Imagine, a whole week of turns, great terrain, gravel, asphalt, nature, experiences day after day without moving equipment. You can choose and drive new routes every single day and return to our charming roof terrace to enjoy good food and drink and maybe meet other nice bikers. We have also set up exciting route suggestions for how to get to Straand Hotel. Check the access road from your place of residence.

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, based at Straand Hotel, you choose from many defined driving routes located in the vicinity of Straand 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 12 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 time on what you like best, just drive and enjoy Telemark 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, our roof terrace, 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 biggest sights in Telemark. Ravnejuvet and the Z museum, which houses a car and motorcycles, are some of these experience places we recommend you visit.

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 needed, call: +47 35 06 90 00
