Downhill mountain biking

With a variety of trails to choose from, ranging from easy and gentle to more technical and challenging, cyclists can find something that suits their skill level and preferences!



No matter which trail you choose, you can expect steep slopes, sharp turns, and high speeds as you race down the mountainside. With beautiful views and fantastic terrain to explore, downhill cycling at Hovden is an experience you won't forget.

This is the first trail you encounter at the top. It is rated blue and takes you down to the start of "Originalen" and "Smakebiten." It is a fairly gentle trail with many berms and some jumps.

Smakebiten This is 2 km of high-quality blue-rated flow trail! It is built so that everyone, regardless of skill level, can have fun and enjoy the ride down the mountain. It is a joy to ride for both experienced and inexperienced cyclists.

This is the first bike trail that was built at Hovden Alpinsenter many years ago. It has received small upgrades every year and has now become a fast, technical blue-rated trail that is 2 km long. This trail is a bit steeper and rougher than Smakebiten, offering a bit more of a challenge.

This is at Hovden in Setesdal.
Lift tickets can be purchased and paid for directly online. You must bring your own bike.

You can enjoy lift-based downhill cycling during the summer lift's opening hours!
