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.
