Explore the fascinating country of Norway as you cycle to Lofoten from Svolvaer on this self-guided holiday. A biking holiday in Lofoten is a once-in-a-lifetime amazing experience. Around practically every bend you will experience new, indescribably beautiful scenery.
The route from Svolvær passes through picturesque fishing hamlets and towns, including Henningsvær (the so-called Venice of Lofoten). You will ride past Stone Age settlements, old boathouses, one of the world’s northern-most golf courses, a doll museum and innumerable art galleries. The nature in Lofoten is powerful and impressive, with green mountains and towering peaks rising straight from the sea. As you cycle, we encourage you to combine natural and cultural experiences. Great biking combined with visits to galleries, museums, etc. You also visit Nusfjord, which is an old, historical fisherman’s village, listed on the UNESCO’s world heritage list.
From early June to mid-July you can experience biking under the midnight sun. Ride all night long with the glow of the sun as your guide. Accommodation in hotels and traditional fisherman's cabins. Even the food is an adventure and we like to call it a culinary journey or a voyage in the Arctic menu. We can guarantee a memorable trip with wonderful experiences.
