Cycling Routes

Cycling is one of the best ways to experience the Norwegian mountains as it allows you to cover long distances in few days and thus get as much as possible out of your holiday. Jotunheimen, home of the Jotner (Giants), is Norway’s most famous national park and home to 29 of the highest mountains in the country, including Galdhøpiggen, the tallest mountain in Northern Europe. This area offers breathtaking panoramic views of mountain ranges, peaks, fjords and lakes, as well as lush, green valleys, and picturesque farmlands.

We offer self-guided cycling routes over the course of five to ten days, including accommodation, food, luggage transportation on the legs, and extra transport during the trip. We can also supply you with equipment such as mountain bikes or electric bikes that will make the arduous ascents a lot more bearable.

Cycling through different terrains in the Norwegian mountains can be as strenuous as it is rewarding. The well-kept trails and roads, either on gravel or asphalt offer good travel conditions, but our unpredictable weather can turn a perfect summers day with clear blue sky into rainy day in a heartbeat. Still, summers in Norway are normally quite nice and warm. Our routes are not too long, so you will also have time to enjoy some other activities at the different lodges after the days cycling.
