Cross country cycling (XC) is a form of mountain biking performed on trails consisting of forest roads and paths. Cross country cycling emphasizes endurance over technical skill. In Sälen there is great cross-country biking on scenic gravel roads, forest roads and trails with different difficulty levels and characters.
Our bike trails start from the trail hub at Experiumtorget. The possibility to take the lift up the mountain and try out biking in the mountains represents an additional dimension for cross-country cycling. All of our trails in Lindvallen are within Bikingdalarna and follow the same style of signs. You will find additional trails in the neighbouring areas at bikingdalarna.se.
The trail information is not yet updated ahead of the 2021 summer season and some of the trails may change.
