    The Atlantic Road

    The famous Atlantic road from Molde to Trondheim is crossing numerous islands still uninhabited. There is "nothing" on the islands but houses of fisherfolk and cattle farmers, several camping sites and small shops. This trip starts in Molde and goes west to the island Midsund, Sandøy and Aukra. Between the islands you can relax on the ferry or an express boat. The tour continues on the mainland to Bud, over islets and reefs on the Atlantic Road before it ends in Kristiansund. Parts of the ride are characterized by flat islands out at sea with stunning views of towering mountains on the mainland.

    The Helgeland Route

    While cycling in Helgeland you experience the nature and animal life at close range. If you’re lucky, you will see porpoises frolicking on the water’s edge while white-tailed eagles fly above you. Explore fairytale like mountains like the Torghatten Mountain, with its distinctive hole straight through it or The Seven Sisters mountain range. Cross the Arctic Circle, visit the World Heritage Area of Vega or be impressed by Norway's second largest glacier, Svartisen. It’s light 24 hours a day during summer, and it’s a magical experience cycling in the peace and tranquility that descends late at night or in the early hours of the morning.

    Lofoten and Vesterålen

Experiencing Vesterålen by automobile is fine, but the adventure is undoubtedly better when you travel the roads by bicycle. Cycling around Vesterålen opens for magic experiences for the visitor, who has sufficient time to take one day at a time. You can chart out a suitable daily route that let you travel at your own speed, and enjoy as much as possible of the region. The routes are easy to cycle, with very little hilly terrain and many stretches that are practically free of motorized traffic. Experience a hike of the 'Dronningruta' (The Queen's Route) and the little hidden gem: the idyllic fisherman’s village Nyksund surrounded by the sea and wilderness.
