Fancy a summer vacation in Norway? - Go cycling!

Last updated: 23.08.2013 // Cycle on a remote island in the midnight sun, try a path beneath a mountain plunging into a fjord, or get your adrenalin pumping going downhill. Gentle family rides or challenging routes for dedicated cyclists – Norway presents numerous options for all levels.

It is easy to find scenic routes for safe, enjoyable cycling holidays along Norwegian roads. If you ride a standard touring bike, the coastline is a good place to start. The majority of the population lives by or near the sea, and the varied scenery makes the cycling trip interesting. The total length of the Norwegian coastline is an incredible 100,000 kilometers and includes numerous fjords and inlets, thousands of islands and a number of picturesque villages. The Norwegian travel magazine "Reiser & Ferie" and the Norwegian Biking Association have ranked Norway’s top 10 biking routes. To read more about them please click here.
