From June to September, Skibotn offers good conditions for cycling in the terrain. After a day in the terrain you can recover in the sauna or hot tub.

Biking in Skibotn

Skibotn is one of the driest places in Norway with approximately 300 mm of precipitation per year. By comparison, the average rainfall in Norway is around 1400 mm a year. This means that the terrain in Skibotn starts to become dry as early as June, therefore creating good conditions for mountain biking all summer.

Here you can see the trail map for Skibotn.
