Cycling tours in Norway

Combining a cycling adventure on your Norwegian holiday is made easy with our expertise.

Adding a cycling adventure into your Norwegian holiday is made easy with our expertise. You could, for instance, combine your tailor made tour of Norway with a few day trips by bike - either road or cross-country cycling. We have included some of the famous cycling roads, like Rallarvegen, a ride on gravel roads through the spectacular highland area from the outskirts of the Hardangervidda Plateau to Flåm into our Fjord Norway itineraries. The area around Senja and the Lofoten Islands is also incredible for biking riding, as you will see from the image gallery below.

Places to rent bicycles, ranging from top quality road bikes to 'rough and ready' cross country bikes offered at your accommodation, are becoming increasingly common. However, before you hit the road, double check with us that if you have any tunnels on your route, that they are open for cyclists.
