Day two takes us to the gate of northern Norway to Trondheim, a town rich in history. Laid back roads along endless lakes take us to Overhalla! Most of day four we cruise along the coastline, interrupted only by wonderfully relaxing ferry rides on our way to Sandnessjoen. Taking off in the morning we ride inland. After a while, the scenery gets more vast and barren, tundra vegetation replaces forests, and all of a sudden there it is – the Arctic Circle. Great riding and more beautiful and varied views make up day eight on our way to Storslet, one of the center points here in the north.
Then a short ride brings us to Alta to give you time either for the Tirpitz Museum, or the ancient work of arts, called “geoglyphs.” After an early start, a long haul takes us to our most important destination, the North Cape. We may have to fight the wind blowing across the barren grounds covered with wind torn vegetation, but we conquer the most northern point of Europe! Crossing the border into Finland, endless forests and numerous lakes accompany us to the town of Karesuando directly at the Swedish-Finnish border. On our last riding day, we head back to the Norwegian coast. Charming Tromsö, one of the main centers up north of Norway, hosts us for our farewell evening.
