Route 1 (W)

The Coastal Route: Lindenes – Stavanger – Bergen: This is a route some may underestimate. The climate, the terrain, and dialects all change the further west or east you head. It’s a route full of surprises, some good and some not so! The route is mainly signposted, but navigating certain sections can be tricky. If you wish, you can skip certain sections with the help of the train or boat and if you decide to cycle it all give yourself more time than you think…
