ON TWO WHEELS YOU WILL GO AT LEAST TWICE AS FAR AS ON TWO LEGS!
Cycling in the mountains is a playful and fun challenge and a great way to discover the mountain world and untouched wilderness. In the Funäsfjällen there is plenty of varied cycling in magnificent mountain surroundings and whether you come with your family or as a professional cyclist, there are plenty of untravelled trails to choose from. There are roads and trails to suit everything from standard bikes, racing bikes and gravel bikes, to mountain bikes and advanced downhill machines. In the Cycling Guide you will find an overview of the cycling routes with detailed descriptions and levels of difficulty.
New this year! Homecoming around
Cykelled 432, about 5 km MTB
Level of difficulty: red
Starts easy with lovely flowing cycling down after the power line on the trail 430 Tännäslänken down towards Tännäs village. When you get further down the hill, the trail splits and you follow trail 432 which goes to the right towards the old cable car.
You cycle past the ropeway and then start a slightly tougher uphill section that goes in serpentine turns. After the first steep slope you follow the ski slope uphill and watch out for when the trail bends to the left and comes back into the descent further up after the first section and continues back towards Tännäskröket in the second one.
Remember to look up and enjoy the beautiful views throughout this section and perhaps stop for a coffee.
Now it's just easy and fun cycling back via the flow lanes of the facility.
Tännäskrökets bicycle park
Easy to cycle, accessible and fun park area for both small and big MTB riders with flowing trails that include velodromes and small jumps with a great flow. There is also a slightly longer route that starts a little higher up that starts on a natural shelf with great views of Tännäskröket, Kröktjärnen and K2. You cycle or walk up and get the reward in fun downhill cycling.
Malta's bike cellar
A loop where you can practise and test if you are not used to cycling off-road. It is a lightly cycled and graveled slightly wider trail. Also works great for the smallest cyclists. It is the same loop that we drive mini scooters on during the winter. Start and finish is behind the heating cabin on the top of the centre building and you just cycle lap after lap.
Cykelled 430, about 4,5km MTB
Level of difficulty: blue
Lightly cycled surfaces with elevation changes mean it can be a little physically challenging, where you'll pick up a little (or a lot) of skin.
The Tännäslänken has two very different characters. Between Härjebrygg and Fiskecentrum, the trail is a mixture of path and old road. The trail passes through beautiful flowery meadows, partly bordered by old farmsteads. The gradient from Fiskecentrum up to the village is steep and you may need to walk some distance. Downhill it rolls along with ease.
Between Tännäskröket and Fiskecentrum, the trail runs largely in a power line street, but also on a gravel road and, in connection with Fiskecentrum, a stretch on asphalt. The power line street has a tricky surface that is fun downhill but quite tough uphill. An alternative is to take the road up to Tännäskröket.
DON'T MISS: Opposite the Fishing Centre is a small training area with a pump track.
Tännäskröket - Käringsjön.
About 36/48 km, about 5 hours.
Start at the cabin knot at Tännäskröket and cycle towards Tännäs village. Turn off on the gravel road towards Käringsjön/Rogen. The road follows the valley of Mysklan and you will see cranes nesting on the vast marshes. Soon you will enter the Rogen nature reserve, characterised by the Deadis moraine or Rogen moraine as it is also known, with its rugged landscape and hundreds of labyrinthine lakes. Take a break at the water's edge and see how nature is reflected in the surface, which is occasionally broken by the waves of fish.
About 55 km, about 4 hours.
Asphalt and gravel road
Take the first pedal outside your door at Tännäskröket and take Krökvägen towards Lossen. The tour is both uphill and downhill, with flatter cycling along the lake level. You pass several sights and cold springs where you can refill your water bottle. If you take the turn to the south, you can finish the bike ride with a refreshing swim at Tjärnbräckan's bathing area before returning home to Tännäskröket.
Tännäskröket - Valmåsen
About 10 km, about 1.5 hours.
This tour goes past the river Tännån, the farms and bathing area of Tjärnbräcka and up to Lake Lossen, which is Sweden's tenth largest power plant dam. Read the information signs about how the village of Valmåsen, with some 15 farms, was transformed into a lake bed.
Högvålen - Sweden's highest village
Nice road on the mountain and wonderful views
Length: 48 km
Height: 426 m
Level of difficulty: blue
On a beautiful road, high up on the mountain, this tour goes. It may be hard to believe that there are such beautiful roads to cycle on in Sweden. The tour starts at Tännäskröket in Tännäs village. Some tricky hills start the tour after road 311 towards Högvålen. Here you will be struck by the beautiful nature, the reindeer and the Sami villages you pass.
You do this rolling on a nice road where the pavement was renovated in 2019, high up on the mountain. The road follows the nature and it creates a nice feeling in cycling. Once in Högvålen there is a nice coffee place at the highest point in the middle of the village. Here you can enjoy a snack before returning the same way. If you have energy left in your legs, you can continue on 311. The views never end.
At Tännäskröket there is coffee and a good lunch to end the day with.

TIPS FOR A SUCCESSFUL CYCLING TRIP
Cycling with a rucksack often feels clumsy, so pack as little as possible and you'll have more fun cycling and can enjoy a smooth ride through the great outdoors. A bike helmet is a must, even if your speed isn't always that high. Stop every now and then to enjoy the beautiful scenery, cool your face in a mountain stream and eat a tasty snack in the open air. Don't forget your water bottle, it can easily be refilled in a mountain stream or cold spring along the way. An extra pair of socks can also be a nice change of clothes. Despite the excellent trails and descriptions in the cycling guide, we recommend that you take a mountain map with you on your tour. Let your body recover in the sauna and whirlpool in the SPA cabin and treat yourself to a lovely dinner at the Árran restaurant as a finale to a great bike ride!
