Tromsø, Noorwegen

The cycling tour will take you over the green islands of Senja, Vesterålen and Lofoten, north of the Arctic Circle. The tour starts inTromsø and ends in Stamsund on the island of Moskenesøya of the Lofoten. This is the point from which the Hurtigruten goes back along the coast to Tromsø during the night and morning. The cycling tour consists of around 600 kilometres spread over 14 days. In these 14 days, 4 non-cycling days are included so that you have the opportunity to enjoy the scenery to its fullest. You will be provided with a GPX file that shows the route, as well as a marked map. This will ensure smooth navigation towards the accommodation.

The islands form a submerged mountainrange of which only the tops can be seen protruding from the sea. The island mountains remained mostly ice free during the last Ice Age. As opposed to the typical Norwegian round mountains on the mainland (fjell), the mountains here are (very) rugged with sharp sides and deep gorges. The versatile nature of the landscape will ensure a spectacular cycling experience here.

The e-bike is of the brand Merida. It is a touring bike with multiple options to support cycling up to 25 km/h. When the battery is fully charged, its range lies between 80 and 120 km, depending on the terrain, altitude, weather conditions and position. Along with the bike, you will receive a reflective vest to make sure you are visible at all times during the cycling tour, including in the tunnels. It is possible to take various Ortlieb bags with you. These bicycle bags have a capacity of 12,5 litres, or 20 litres for the bags on the back and 5 litres for the handlebar bags.

The bikes are supplied by Tromsø Outdoor; a specialist in summer and winter outdoor activities.

Highlights

Witness the midnight sun

The islands are located so far north that the sun does not set between mid-May and June. It is truly a remarkable experience to watch the setting sun become the rising sun in the middle of the night. The red and yellow painted Norwegian sea is a spectacular view to behold.

Senja

The second largest island in Norway is home to a large variety of landscapes and shows enormous contrasts. The east of the green island is forested, whereas the west coast consists of deep fjords, rugged mountain tops and a craggy coast. The island remains relatively unknown to most, which means you won’t be running into a lot of people here.

Reine on the Lofoten

The fisherman’s town of Reine is situated on the west side of the Lofoton. The red and white wooden houses with a backdrop of granite mountain tops make for some stunning views. Many find this the most beautiful destination of the tour. The area lends itself perfectly to many activities and sights to see. Climb one of the mountain tops here to enjoy the view, or take the ferry to a secluded beach for a walk. It is also possible to spot killer whales and sea eagles here.

Accommodation

During the cycling tour you will be staying in different types of accommodation, ranging from self-catering cabins to hotels with a view onto the Norwegian Sea and the mountain tops protruding from the water. Availability will be looked at for each trip and tailored to the customer’s request as much as possible. The distance between accommodations is never more than 80 km, which allows for ample time to get there in the afternoon and thus ensure a relaxed cycling tour. The self-catering cabins are equipped with a kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, and patio with a view onto the surroundings. The cabins come with clean linen and towels. If you wish, you can place an extra order for breakfast. Should there be any dietary requests or allergies, please notify us through mail. Every accommodation has electricity so that the e-bike can be recharged.
