Welcome

To Norway

The world’s most underrated 
cycling destination

Your Journey begins here

I call Norway the world’s largest adventure playground. Lying on the edge of Europe and reaching the Arctic sea, this mythical land of fjords, mountains, and glaciers make it a unique place to experience. Surprisingly, it only entices a select few cyclists each year. Images of cold and wet weather, long tunnels, challenging terrain, and a lack of practical information have kept Norway out of sight and mind for decades. 

But times are changing; the bike industry is developing like never before, the smartphone has revolutionised how we travel, and the gear has become more innovative and lighter. This incredible country has never been more accessible and we are the final piece in the jigsaw. Welcome to Cycle Norway. Your journey begins here.

Cycle Norway's Annual Event

It’s been a very busy and demanding first year for Cycle Norway. We have helped hundreds of people enjoy this incredible country by bicycle. To celebrate the success, our inaugural annual event took place at the world famous Trollstigen in late September. The weather was kind, the views spectacular, and the company wonderful. Over 45 riders from all over Norway joined us for a 100km ride up and down this famous and historic road. Photos and a film from the event will be launched here and on Youtube in the coming weeks. It was a day to remember and we look forward to sharing it with you. 

Members can read the full article about the day here: https://cyclenorway.com/close-trollstigen/

Our 2024 Event dates have now been released. Join us for an incredible few days in the mountains with like-minded people from around the world.
