National cycle route, bike park, trail and downhill cycling

Some people choose a bicycle as a means of transportation through Setesdal; others take a shorter ride just for fun. In any case, nature is their closest companion. 

An eBike will take you anywhere

From Evje & Hornnes in the south to Valle in the north, almost 100 kilometres, there is a total of seven eBike rental stations. A fully charged battery will provide motor assistance for about 50 kilometres. This means that you can explore and enjoy some of the scenic side roads along RV 9.
You may also ride from one rental station to the next and deliver the bicycle there. The stations are located at Mineralparken, Dølen Hotell and Troll Aktiv in Evje, at Revsnes Hotell and Bua in Bygland, and at Sølvgarden Hotell and Valle Aktiv in Valle.

Cycling off the beaten track

There are few marked bicycle routes in Setesdal, but a number of the hiking trails are suitable for bicycles. At tourist information offices and similar places you may get more detailed information about those trails, including maps.
