Norway Fjordlands Bike Tour

Explore hidden gems of Scandinavia

Raw. Powerful. Untouched. There are so many ways to describe the unique countryside of Norway that makes it a rare and undiscovered cycling destination. This territory is speckled with Nordic attitude, from outrageous glaciers to jagged, dramatic mountains practically carved out of marble. We pulled out all the stops for our Norway bike tour, working in collaboration with local riders to give you an unparalleled view of fjord country. You’ll spin past the Sognefjellet National Tourist Route, the proud Jostedalsbreen glacier, and the Lustrafjord, one of the country’s longest and deepest fjords that serves as a main port-of-call for its bustling boat industry. Join us as we ride into the heart of Mother Nature’s most northerly crown jewel. Book your trip with confidence »

Norway Fjordlands Bike Tour
It was clearly a shared opinion by everyone on this trip/tour that it was terrific. Obviously the setting (Norwegian fjords and mountains) was extraordinary, and the planning and execution of the tour by Trek Travel generally was terrific. Even with all of that, the quality and pleasure provided by Alvaro and Pavel really "made" the trip. As my first Trek Travel experience, I was expecting a wonderful "bike tour" and came away thrilled with what was in fact a wonderful "adventure" bike tour. Memorable for a long time to come.

Welcome to some of the world’s most untouched wilderness! Meet your Trek Travel guides on the first morning of your Norway bike tour in Sogndal, before departing on a one-hour shuttle taking you north along the longest navigable fjord to the outpost town of Skjolden. Our destination? The world-class Skjolden Hotel, where the views take center stage. Relax, unwind, and make yourself comfortable. We’ll then gather for a scenic lunch followed by introductions to the group and your Trek bike for the week. You'll roll out on a relaxed, mostly flat ride through farmlands, and along Eidsvatnet Lake with stunning cliff views. These sweeping views will give you just a taste of what’s to come.

Your destination today is the romantic village of Urnes, home to the oldest Norwegian Stave church, situated on a promontory. We will take the opportunity of visiting this outstanding example of traditional Scandinavian wooden architecture, built around 1130 and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. After the visit, your guides will provide you with a packed lunch that highlights local products before you saddle up and retrace your steps back to the hotel. Those wanting a shorter option can take the shuttle back to the hotel.

Here you’ll check-in to your new home for the next two nights, the lovely Tørvis hotel, set in a magnificent location overlooking the fjord. Tonight, explore Marifjøra on your own for dinner.

Roads in the fjordlands region are mountainous and undulating in nature. If you enjoy a hearty climb or a smile-inducing descent, you'll love the terrain on our Norway bike tour. However, options abound for guests, with plenty of opportunities to extend your ride or shorten it up depending on your feelings each day. Whether it's a climb up to Sognefjellet mountain pass at 4,920 feet or a mellow spin in the Mørkrid valley, the riding here has it all. Beautiful pavement on narrow, quiet roads are the name of the game, and community members and drivers are more than accustomed to sharing the roads with cyclists. Our cycling tours in Norway are best suited for our Type 3 Riders. Our Trek Travel guides can also easily accommodate Type 2 Riders, who seek less mileage or fewer uphills, with a boost in the van. Those who wish to ride every mile but are concerned about their physical ability may want to try our electric bike option—you still get a workout but can climb alongside even the strongest rider. Type 3+ Riders will enjoy the extra mileage the avid route options offer.
On most Trek Travel trips, we offer non-riding options for riders who want to take the afternoon off, or travel companions who want to spend little or no time in the saddle. Some of these options may need to be scheduled before your trip–please contact one of our Trip Consultants for more information. Expenses and/or related transportation to these activities may not be included in the trip price. Some non-riding options on our Norway bike tour are:
  • Visit Urnes Stave Church, a UNESCO World Heritage Site
  • Hike up to a waterfall
  • Short boat ride across the glacial lake and hike on the glacier
  • RIB boat adventure across the Lustrafjord
  • Enjoy a swim, SUP, or kayak on the fjord
  • Hike in the Mørkrisdalen Valley

See itinerary for specific daily ride distances and elevation options. On all of our vacations, Trek Travel seeks to find quiet, paved secondary roads or bike paths to experience a region; busy roads are avoided as much as possible. Our itineraries are an approximation of our trips. Trek Travel strives to offer every guest a vacation of a lifetime on every trip. At times routes, hotels, activities, etc. listed here may change at the discretion of the trip designer or guides to improve the trip experience.

Quality Hotel Sogndal, Sogndal, Norway

Say Farewell

Sogndal Airport (SOG)
11:30 AM
Quality Hotel Sogndal, Sogndal, Norway


We suggest that you arrive at least one day prior to the start of our Norway bike tour, which will enable you to adjust to the time zone and minimize the risk of missing the trip start due to travel-related delays. We recommend that you arrive to Sogndal by way of Bergen or Oslo.

To arrive from Bergen, you can take a lovely four and a half hour ExpressBoat ferry from Bergen to Sogndal. There is only one afternoon departure from Bergen on the Norway ExpressBoat. ExpressBoat tickets run approximately $98 USD each way and can be purchased online at http://booking.norled.no/default.aspx. We recommend purchasing tickets at least four weeks in advance because the price increases as you get closer to the date. Flights into Sogndal Airport (SOG) from Bergen Airport, Flesland (BGO) can be booked separately on a domestic airline. There is typically one morning and one evening direct flight from BGO to SOG.

To arrive from Oslo, we recommend you book a separate domestic ticket into Sogndal Airport (SOG) from Oslo Airport (OSL). There is usually one morning and one evening direct flight from OSL to SOG.

Sogndal airport (SOG) is a tiny airport. There is a bus service with scheduled departures from the airport after each flight arrival. No advance booking is required, just pay the driver when you board. The bus ticket costs approximately $10 per person, and you can pay by credit card. From the airport, it is a 20-minute bus drive to Sogndal city center. The end stop is at the bus station which is right across the road from our meeting location, the Quality Hotel. Alternatively, you can arrange a pick-up with Sogndal Taxi (+47 57 67 10 00) by calling in advance, but it will be more expensive.

We highly suggest you make travel arrangements well in advance, and that you plan to arrive a minimum one day prior to the trip start to avoid delays. For more travel options and information, please contact your Trip Consultant.

Your Trek Travel guides will meet you at the Quality Hotel Sogndal (Gravensteinsgata 5, 6856 Sogndal, Norway) at 11:00 AM on the first day of our guided cycling tour in Norway. You and your traveling companions will take a one-hour private Trek Travel shuttle to the Skjolden Hotel, where you'll check-in and enjoy a casual lunch over introductions. After a bike fitting, you'll then set off on a scenic introductory ride into Fortun valley, returning back to Skjolden.

If you will be late for the pick-up or are going to miss it altogether, please inform your guides. You will receive an email a week before the trip start with their names and contact details. If you cannot reach them, please call our first hotel, the Skjolden Hotel (+47 57 68 23 80), and leave a message with your expected arrival time and contact details.

Planning For Your Trip

Packing and Weather

From late June to early August, the weather is at its warmest with temperatures reaching about 72°F and it never seems to get really dark. It’s a welcome respite after a long, cold winter and, like the flowers, the Norwegians bloom from the new-found sun and warmth. Despite the summer months bringing long hours of daylight and pleasant temperatures, you must be prepared for rainy days and chilly temperatures as the weather changes quickly. The days can vary between sunny and warm where you can enjoy a refreshing dip in the fjord, to cold and humid, with temperatures hanging around freezing (35° F) when cycling over mountain passes! Therefore, we recommend bringing a variety of cycling gear, from warm to cold and wet weather. You must be prepared with the proper rain gear, including booties and warm winter gloves for the long descents at higher altitudes. Layers are key when riding in Norway!   Packing List

Before and After Your Trip


Before: Sogndal, Norway

Sogndal is a thriving town of 6,000 people located at the heart of Norway's interior Songnefjord region. Quaint hotels, great restaurants, over 70 downtown shops, and a successful professional soccer team make up this lively community tucked beneath snow-capped peaks. Most points of interests are all within walking distance of the ferry terminal and hotel districts. Sogndal is a great introduction to life in the fjordlands. We recommend the following accommodations for your pre-trip hotel.


After: Bergen, Norway

Strikingly set on a convergence of fjords, backed by steeped, forested slopes, Bergen waits to be explored. Even though it is the second largest city in Norway, it has the vibe of a small town, packed with charm and urban character, from the fascinating and picturesque quarters with houses clinging to the hillsides, to the narrow cobblestone alleys and world-famous attractions. The UNESCO World Heritage site Bryggen, “The Hanseatic Wharf,” is the most obvious remnant from the time Bergen used to be the center of trade between Norway and the rest of Europe. Just a stone’s throw away is the lively fish market, which has been providing the locals with freshly caught treasures from the sea since 1276. Today, it is one of Norway’s most visited outdoor markets, and also offers fresh fruit, vegetables, handicrafts, and souvenirs. Another highlight is the Bergen Aquarium, which boasts more than 50 aquariums and plenty of entertaining sea and land animals. Finally, do not miss the open-air Old Bergen Museum, where you can catch a glimpse of the past. The museum is a reconstructed small town and a reminder that Bergen used to be Europe’s largest wooden city, consisting of around 50 wooden houses dating from the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries. We recommend the following accommodations for your post-trip hotel.
