    The plan for today was actually to drive from Lofsdalen to Åre and go to the bike park there tomorrow. On the way there, however, we pass through Funäsdalen and since petrol stations are rare in the area, we take the opportunity and fill up the car. Who knows when the next gas station will come!We are just about to leave town when we notice a bike shop that sells mountain bikes for hire. Doesn't that mean that you can bike well here, doesn't it !? So we take a look at the map and see: There are indeed trails here! Without further ado, we change the plan and look for a parking space from which we can go on a discovery tour.And this tour is awesome! Here, too, seems to be a ski area in winter and bike trails have been created for the “off-season” in summer. So we go uphill again on extremely steep maintenance routes and after half an hour we come out at the top of the lift station. As always, the view is amazing! The sun peaks out from between the clouds and suddenly it illuminates a small island in the lake that lies on the plain in front of us. Simply magical!Full of zest for action, we set off from the top and suddenly find ourselves in an area where there are warning signs about moose hunting. We are not exactly sure what it says there, but we prefer to turn around and look for another way. But unfortunately there is none. Well, keep your eyes open. ;-)Fortunately we don't meet any hunters and unfortunately we don't see any moose either, but the trail is simply top class! Freshly laid out, natural and flowing - this is probably the best trail we have ridden in Sweden so far! The descent is especially long, very different from further south.Once at the bottom, we even see a trail keeper who is currently on the road with her quad and piles up fresh earth to make the trail even more beautiful.The detour to Funäsdalen was more than worth it! Now it's on to Are :)
