Norway Fjordlands Bike Tour

Don't just travel. Explore.

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 »

We’ve taken a lot of bike trips with a Trek Travel and other companies, and a few of the rides on this trip were my all-time favorites. We chose this trip since Trek Travel was the only company offering a road bike trip in Norway and given the logistics challenges, this trip was outstanding. We really enjoyed the opportunity to do some epic rides. I also enjoyed the opportunity to hike to the waterfall and the glacier. These activities really enhanced the experience and helped us feel that we got a good taste of the beauty of Norway.

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 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
  • Explore the picturesque village of Lom and its stave church
  • Enjoy a swim, SUP, or kayak on the fjord
  • Go hiking in the Jotunheimen Natural Park

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.

Travel Details

How to Get There

Sogndal Airport (SOG)
11:00 AM
Quality Hotel Sogndal, Sogndal, Norway

Say Farewell

Sogndal Airport (SOG)
12:30 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 fly into the Sogndal Airport (SOG) by way of either the Bergen Airport, Flesland (BGO) or Oslo Airport (OSL). Pro tip: It might be a better deal to buy the puddle jumper ticket into SOG separately. Once in Sogndal, you will need a taxi to our meeting hotel, which is about a 20-minute drive.

It is possible (and not terribly expensive) to rent a car in either Bergen or Oslo. The drive to Sogndal will take about four to five hours and rental cars can be dropped off at the Sogndal airport. Please note that Norway speed limits are typically lower than in many other countries, and they are strictly enforced. Norwegian speeding tickets are very expensive!

If you choose to take the ExpressBoat from Bergen to Sogndal, a lovely four and a half hour scenic option, you will need to be ready to board at the Bergen Ferry Terminal at a specific time. The summer schedule will be updated in early spring. We recommend purchasing tickets at least four weeks in advance because the price goes up as you get closer to the date. There are two weekday departures from Bergen on the Norway ExpressBoat, and only one departure on Saturdays and Sundays. ExpressBoat tickets run approximately $98 USD each way. Tickets can be purchased online at http://booking.norled.no/default.aspx. If for some reason you miss the ferry boarding, a taxi from Bergen to Sogndal will cost between $600-700 USD.

Either way, 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.

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. Please have your first-day cycling clothes and riding gear easily accessible, separate from your main luggage. You and your traveling companions will take a 30-minute private Trek Travel shuttle to Marifjøra, where you'll enjoy a casual lunch in a beautiful location. We will then set off on a scenic ride along the Hafslo Lake, returning back to Marifjøra. From here, we have the option of riding all the way to the hotel or taking a ride in the van.

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.

View our pre hotel recommendations


You'll depart the Turtagrø Hotel at 11:00 AM on Friday, arriving at approximately 12:30 PM in Sogndal. Please do not schedule any flights out of Sogndal before 3:00 PM. We recommend flying back to Bergen or Oslo and spending the evening exploring before finishing your journey home the following day (Saturday). Please see our pre and post hotel recommendations for our accommodation suggestions.

If taking the ferry back, ExpressBoat departures from Sogndal to Bergen take place at 7:05 AM each day of the week and at 10:40 AM on Sundays. Alternatively, there are two daily departures from Leikanger (30 minutes from Sogndal). Take the time to explore Sogndal on your own this afternoon and be ready for your departure the following morning. Since you'll be taking the ferry back on Saturday, please do not schedule a flight out of the Bergen Airport before 3:00 PM on Saturday to allow plenty of time for any unforeseen delays.

If needed, Sogndal Taxi (+47 57 67 10 00) can help get you from the hotel to your terminal at a more convenient time. Please arrange this at your own discretion.

Planning For Your Trip

Packing and Weather

From late June to early August, the weather is at its warmest 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. Late June to early August is when summer is at its peak, with temperatures reaching about 80°F. At the same time there is hardly any humidity in the air, and even at night temperatures can remain high. 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.
