The North

The northern roads are mainly flat and offer light traffic with the exception of Lofoten. If you cycle the Atlantic Coast route (Eurovelo 1) up to Tromsø, you will hit the first four on this map (south to north), which are all spectacular. Remember to take some small detours away from the main route. Lofoten especially has some secret dead-end roads that few journey down. The far north routes, few people cycle for two reasons. Havøysund is ignored because it’s on the opposite side of the popular Nordkapp route (the Top of Europe). If you use the coastal boat service (Hurtigruten), you could include it with Nordkapp (see the Nordkapp Loop route). The other road, Varanger, is so far away it will take hundreds of kilometres from Nordkapp and nearly a thousand from Tromsø to reach. If you decide to cycle this far, it’s a special road on which to end your Arctic adventure!
