Adventure North Cape ANC

Finland   |  Norway

Cross the Artic Circle and enjoy the ride to Europe‘s most northern point, the North Cape.

Fjords, glaciers, midnight sun, the Arctic Circle, North Cape – keywords for our motorcycle tour “Adventure North Cape”! Starting in Ålesund, we climb the famous Trollstigen mountain pass and then follow the coastline and fjords, to Åndalsnes.

From Trondheim we take laid back roads along endless lakes to Overhalla! We cruise along the coastline, interrupted only by wonderfully relaxing ferry rides on our way to Sandnessjøen. As you will notice as we go inland, the scenery gets more vast and barren, tundra vegetation replaces forests, and all of a sudden there it is – the Arctic Circle. Only the spectacular view of the Lofoten islands and Vesterålen can top that. After visiting Alta and its famous Tirpitz Museum we conquer our most important destination, the North Cape.

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 Tromsø, one of the main centers of Norway, hosts us for our farewell evening.

Testimonials

Adventure North Cape

This was my first trip with Edelweiss Bike Travel and I was sceptical because I prefer to ride alone. I have made many rides to Alaska, New Zealand and all over the USA by myself. So, I took a chance and signed up for the Adventure North Cape tour. What I discovered was that our group was small, with about 12 people from around the world. The trip was not just about the riding, but about the lasting friendships I still cherish. We had two awesome guides, Manuel and Michael, who worked very hard to make our time in Norway enjoyable. They explained in detail the day‘s events and what we were going to see. This just took all the stress out of the riding. This confirmed single rider is now a confirmed group rider and I have already scheduled my second ride with Edelweiss in August for the High Alpine Tour. And this time I will bring my wife.
