If you change to a date with a higher price, you will have to pay the remaining amount.

4. The rental is not refunded in the event of bad weather or that certain sections are not recommended for cycling due to snow.

5. We strongly recommend taking out travel insurance that covers your expenses in the event of illness or unforeseen events.

If you fear that you cannot travel due to the COVID19 situation, we recommend that you have insurance that covers this, or wait to book until you are sure that you can travel.

Snow along the the Rallarvegen:

The season on Rallarvegen varies in length depending on the amount of snow and when it melts. Parts of the road are not allowed to be plowed, so the snow must melt naturally.

In a normal season, the road is passable from the beginning of July, but with some snowdrifts to roll over.

Some years the season starts several weeks later. We recommend keeping up to date on conditions before booking, so you know your route is rideable.

Bookings for bikes made for dates between July 1-15 can be freely changed to a later date in the season if there is snow on parts of the road. Change must be made at least 7 days before you pick up the bike.

For bookings for cycling after July 15, they can be changed to a later date if it is not passable between Haugastøl and Finse or Hallingskeid and Flåm. Snow between Finse and Hallingskeid will not be a reason to change the date. (here you can take the bike on the bike train past it).

The rental fee is not refunded due to snow, you are responsible for checking current conditions. We continuously update current conditions on our website. (Click on Rallarvegrapport).
