Forest adventure outside Bengtsfors in Dalsland.

Dalsland

- Untouched nature and magnificent views! 

Dalsland is known for its fantastic views, lakes and forests. The Bengtsfors MTB area is excellent to explore under your own steam. On the one hand is the freedom of lots of great trails that offer good cycling with varying degrees of difficulty, on the other, there is the mountain bike competition Dalsland X-country, which starts and finishes in Bengstfors. There are two courses, one at 57 kilometres and one at 35 kilometres long.

- The courses offer superb views, winding trails by the lakes and picturesque gravel roads. The track is not technically difficult so anyone can cycle it, says Crister Blüme, who is responsible for operations at Camp Dalsland.

Challenging MTB track in Kinnekulle

Kinnekulle, Götene

– Up and down the mountain!

Across Lake Vänern you can see the landmark Kinnekulle. A mountain surrounded by plains that are often referred to as a cycling paradise. The Kinnekulle MTB trail, which is 45 kilometres long, is a classic. It starts from the top of Kinnekulle and then follows the shores of Lake Vänern back up again. The trail is not technically difficult but contains a lot of elevation gain so it can be challenging that way. But the view is magnificent, and it is a popular route for cycling enthusiasts.

8 tips for your bike trip

1. Take plenty of water, on some tracks it can be miles to the nearest water.

2. Remember that you get around quickly in the saddle but it takes a long time to walk back the same way. Be sure to bring a small repair kit and be able to handle a puncture.

3. Wear goggles. Twigs and mosquitoes hurt when they get in your eyes.

4. Wear a helmet! Obviously!

5. For a comfortable trip – invest in some cycling shorts with a padded butt!

6. Observe, respect, and take care. Stop, dismount, greet and move to the side when you meet hikers, horse riders, and animals (domestic animals or game).

7. Do not cycle if the weather and/or the season make the trails sensitive and easily damaged. Respect the landowner!

8. Last but not least; if you are unsure where you are able or allowed to ride a mountain bike, contact the local tourist information.
