Cycling round trip in Vesterålen, the beautiful, islands just north of Lofoten. Relax and enjoy the tranquillity while surrounded by amazing Norwegian landscapes. We have added time to explore more roads or go for exciting hikes. 

This bicycle trip takes you on a tour of the archipelago just north of Lofoten. In this hidden gem, you can relax and enjoy the silence as you ride your bicycle through the varied, beautiful and exciting nature. You bike along quiet fjords and sweeping oceans, along impressive peaks, colourful marshes and lush cultural landscapes. Along the way, you will experience the old fishing village Nyksund. The abandoned ghost town by the open ocean has awakened with new life and become a unique destination for travellers in Vesterålen. Further on, you can shorten your bike ride with an exciting boat trip between the small islands south of Nyksund. Then you move on to Bø in Vesterålen. With its beautiful and diverse nature, Bø is often characterized as the pearl of Vesterålen.

We have added a couple of extra days, with time to explore more roads or go for a hike. In Nyksund you can walk Dronningruta (The Queen's Route), named after Queen Sonja of Norway who fell in love with the trail and the landscapes when she was here in 1994. The trip was voted Norway's most beautiful hike in 2012.

This is a self-guided adventure, cycling point to point, with a detailed map and guidebook supplied and luggage transferred for you. You will be cycling 20-60 km each day and need a medium level of fitness for this vacation. Routes are quiet with little traffic. Bikes are not included in this vacation, but we can arrange a bike rental for you.

The days are long and light in high summer, and from June to mid-July you can enjoy cycling in the light of the midnight sun. If you have the energy, it’s possible to ride all night long, with the glowing sun to light your way.

This tour can be combined with our tour in Lofoten or the Arctic Coast Cycling tour.

The bicycle tour in Vesterålen is rich in variations - beautiful nature, majestic mountains and a coastline of steep cliffs, narrow fjords, islands and white beaches. Vesterålen has not yet been discovered by the crowds and is a good alternative to the busy Lofoten Isles.
