Our Private Trips are best for groups of 6 or more. We suggest joining a scheduled trip.

Group size is required to show per-person pricing. Your group size can be approximate and can change.

Activity Level: 1-2

Our Dolce Tempo activities allow you to leisurely explore local hidden gems and to get away from the crowds, experiencing the essence of your location on your own terms and at your own pace. Easier than our other trips, but still wonderfully active, itinerary options typically include 2-4 hours of walking, e-biking or other excursions per day. On e-bike routes, our custom electric-assist bikes allow you to pedal effortlessly. Your trip is fully supported with dedicated Trip Leaders, vans, meticulously selected routes and downloadable GPS files available for use on your own device.

Route notes

The walking routes on this trip are mainly on smooth grass, gravel and dirt pathways, and paved paths and quiet roads. We will briefly walk through a forest which has some exposed roots, and since the mountains taper directly into the fjords and lakes, you can also expect a few steeper sections. E-biking routes are primarily on quiet scenic roads and often in designated bike lanes. Although the roads are almost always quiet, some sections are narrow and winding. With the exception of one long significant downhill section, our rides primarily range from level to rolling.
