The Best Bike Tour in Northern Europe
Lofoten Islands, Northern Norway is a bike touring paradise - Europe's premiere cycling destination.
Never heard of the Lofoten Islands ? Well, it is time to get in the know. This Northern Norway archipelago is an once-in-a-lifetime bike touring experience. Around virtually every corner you will find new, indescribably beautiful scenery. To quote Lonely Planet's introduction:
"You'll never forget your first approach to the Lofoten Islands by ferry. The islands spread their tall, craggy physique against the sky like some spiky sea dragon and you wonder how human beings eke out a living in such seemingly inhospitable surroundings. The beauty of this place is simply staggering."
Sun or rain, calm or windy, any type of weather will provide you with truly unique and memorable experiences here in the Lofoten!
The route from Svolvær to Reine runs through picturesque fishing hamlets and towns, such as Stamsund, Nusfjord & Reine. You can cycle past Stone Age settlements, old boathouses, the world’s northernmost golf course, museums and innumerable art galleries. We can assist with a tailor-made bike touring focussed program that stays in the very best accommodation of the region, with two night stays along the way. We love this area of Norway and regularly visit it ourselves for riding adventures.
The biking in Lofoten is smooth and generally easy but we do suggest to avoid the busiest summer months.
An active vacation through Lofoten in North of Norway will provide you with memories never to be forgotten! Read here about our Lofoten tour options.
