Cycling in Northern Norway

Despite the mountains here, cycling in Northern Norway is easier than you might think. There are cycle paths along the shoreline, and you can board one of the many ferries if you need a break. Cycling packages are available in Helgeland, in and around Bodø, in Lofoten, in Vesterålen, along the outer coast of the island of Senja and around Tromsø. Mountain biking and off-road biking are available in some places, particularly from Alta and in towards the Finnmarkvidda Plateau.
