A bike ride along the Helgeland coast, in Northern Norway, offers spectacular scenery, with towering peaks, stunning ocean vistas and sheltered bays.
There are thousands of islands in all kinds of sizes and shapes. You cycle along fjords, over bridges, and at the foot of majestic mountains.
Every day you'll have the spectacular views of famous Norwegian landmarks: The Seven Sisters mountain range, The Mount Dønnamannen and Torghatten.
You also get to visit the island of Vega, and the island of Lovund, which is known for its large colony of puffins.
Helgeland is a unique, open landscape of sea and land, which also reflects the way fishermen and farmers have lived during the past 1500 years, still maintained as a vibrant community.
The landscape along the coast of Helgeland is easy to ride, with relatively low traffic on the main roads. Each day provides opportunities of making your own daytrips by inserting your own choice of detours.
The hills will probably not take your breath away, but the sights and the wonderful scenery will.
When the trip is booked and paid for, you will receive a detailed program, describing the various. options, with the length, timetables for ferries, etc.
