A leisure cycling holiday along the shores of the Sognefjord, Norway's largest and deepest fjord. Cycle through a majestic unspoilt landscape of high mountain peaks, cascading waterfalls and tiny hamlets of wooden clapperboard houses. Breathe in the fresh Nordic air and truly unwind on this relaxing holiday in the back of beyond.
Spend a night in Bergen before catching a ferry up the coast to the Sognefjord, Norway's 'King of Fjords'. You'll then spend 5 days cycling through an epic, mythical landscape that is raw, untamed and utterly captivating
Your daily rides serve up a smorgasbord of visual treats from high mountain peaks with verdant pine-clad flanks to thundering waterfalls and tiny fairytale-like hamlets all reflected in the mirror-like waters of the crystal-clear fjord.
You'll spend two nights at each stopover hotel, allowing you to relax and fully unpack at each of the charming villages you will stay at along the route.
At the end of the tour you will be dropped off at the quay in Sogndal from where you can catch the ferry back to Bergen
The daily cycle routes range from 24 to 59 kms and follow mostly quiet lanes and roads close to the shoreline. There are some undulations along the way, with one notable climb of 250m over 5 kilometres to Hafslo at the end of day six but for the most part this route is rated easy and well within the abilities of all leisure cyclists. Regular hybrid bikes are included in the package price and e-bikes are available for a supplement.
