Three tours for the whole family

Taking a dip during a bike ride is both refreshing and fun. Here are three suggestions for nice and easy bike rides to beautiful lakes and mountain tarns. A perfect trip for a family of all ages. Don’t forget the snacks and a towel! 

Fröåtjärn round trip – 1-2 h

Difficulty: Blue | Length: 7.5 km | Ascent: 138 m

An easy XC ride in beautiful terrain. Start from Björnen and ride on the old mining road towards Fröå mine. There is a nice rest area with a BBQ next to the lake where you can take a small dip and have a pique-nique. The trip continues around the lake to a larger gravel road back towards Björnen. This trip fits the family, but if you have smaller children, we recommend that you also ride back the same way you started on the smaller mining road, to avoid the longer tour around the lake and the traffic on the unpaved road.

Nulltjärn – 1 h

Difficulty: Blue | Length 6.3 km

A nice bike ride with the opportunity for a little beach time and swimming at the Nulltjärn tarn, surrounded by mountains. The trip goes from Vålådalen to Nulltjärn on a nice gravel road.

Hensjön – 1 h

Difficulty: Blue | Length: 2.7 km

A beautiful trip that takes you to Hensjön. There is a resting place and a nice beach with swimming facilities. The road home is the same as the way you came, just follow Henån’s rushing water back to Edsåsdalen.
