NORWAY

An adventure through some of Europe’s most rugged and remote landscapes

Dramatic mountain views, magnificent fjords and beautifully quiet forests set the scene for a unique Norwegian experience on and off the bike. We’ll join the dots on smooth roads, gravel tracks and the occasional ferry ride too. Add Bergen’s Road World Championships route, an afternoon exploring by kayak and a full day’s hiking to Trolltunga (The Trolls Tongue) to complete an action-packed week of outdoor adventure. Unpredictable weather can make this challenging route even more so, but an ideal trip for those looking to get well and truly off the beaten track. The charming city of Bergen and stylish capital of Oslo bookend the experience, offering a quick fix of Scandinavian urban life to make the journey in between the two feel even more extraordinary.
