View Holiday Schedule

A gently paced self-guided cycling holiday in Norway through the majestic Lofoten Islands. The endless days and magical light around the time of the Midnight Sun provide the setting for this easy-going cycling tour.
 
This narrow chain of islands crams in more mountains per square mile than any other part of Norway. Jagged peaks sweep down to the sea, leaving a narrow brim of coastal roads with breath-taking views, amid charming fishing villages - simply perfect for cycling! With daytime melting into night time, there are also lots of opportunities for midnight walks for those with the energy.
 
For accommodation in the Lofotens we use small guesthouses or hotels and lovely quayside rorbus; traditionally painted fishermen’s wood cabins perched on stilts. With some providing rowing boats, you may wish to try some fishing, or take a sauna and optional fjord dip for an invigorating experience, Scandinavian style.
 
Evening meals are either taken at the superb local restaurants, renowned for their delicious seafood, or in the rorbus if you prefer to try your hand at cooking. Lunches en route can be taken at small cafes or done picnic style, with lots of Norwegian delicacies available at the villages you'll be staying at.
 
If you're interested in doing this holiday with children, then take a look at our family holiday in the Lofotens where you may find the information more relevant to your needs.
