Tour overview

EXPLORE THE MAGIC OF THE FJORDS

Life in the modern world, for all of its excitements, can be overwhelming. That’s why we designed a cycling adventure in which all you have to do is concentrate on yourself, your bike, and the open road…and skies are a helicopter trip to the top of a pass where your bikes will be waiting to descend.  

Allow us to handle all of the details so you can relax and make the most of each day. Explore Norway’s stunning scenery in small groups of like-minded adventurers. You’ll feel like you can ride forever, inspired by the crystal-clear air of the Sunnmøre Alps and enchanted by the sensational views.

Then it’s time to relive the day’s adventures with your friends, over a drink by the fire, in the sauna, or at dinner on the edge of a spectacular fjord.
