Why we love this tour

"Cycling in awe of the towering peaks which rise straight from the sea. A special part of this tour is your overnight stays in "Rorbu" fishermen's cabins. These are an important part of Lofoten's heritage and were built originally in 1100 by the King to accommodate fishermen."

Cycling in the Lofoten Islands is certainly one of those bucket list experiences that you need to try. This once-in-a-lifetime tour will take you through beautiful coastal scenery with towering peaks rising straight from the sea, small farms and picturesque fishing hamlets. Visit towns like Henningsvaer, the Venice of the Lofoten Islands, and Nusfjord, a UNESCO protected historic fishermen's village. You will cycle past Stone Age settlements, art galleries, the world's northernmost golf course and old boathouses.

Even though the cycling on this tour is relatively flat and easy, you need to come prepared to experience varied weather conditions. You will come home with fantastic memories of this unique tour. There is also the option to stop over in Oslo before your tour starts.

Accommodation

Local guesthouses & cabins

There are not many hotels on Lofoten. On this tour you will stay in local guesthouses and in "Rorbu" fishermen's cabins. The "Rorbu" are an important part of Lofoten's heritage and were built originally in 1100 by the King to accommodate the fishermen. With two to three bedrooms in each cabin, you will have your own bedroom but on one night will share the living area and on two nights share both the bathroom and living room with fellow cyclists.
