Adventure North Cape - for the first time since 2019

Wednesday, July 27, 2022 | Arild Korstadhagen / Angela / Felix Gregor Huber | Europe

1st riding day - Ålesund to Sunndalsøra

Edelweiss Bike Travel is back in Norway and the first Adventure Nort Cape since 2019 is on it's way.

A large group of 20 guests all made it to Ålesund in time, despite some flight trouble. This morning the group started off in some typical west coast summertime conditions - grey skies and a bit moist. But i doesn't really matter as the scenery is fabolous anyway. Angela led a tail of 17 bikes from Ålesund, along fjords and over passes. Todays ride was much about Trolls as both the famous Troll ladder was ridden, and the Troll wall was viewed.

Not only Norway has trolls - it looks like there are some Edelweiss trolls out there, too

We made it safely into our first hotel on route

4th ridingday Overhalla to Sandnessjøen

This day is all about Costal Road 17 and includes three ferry rides on our way to Sandnessjøen. Even thoug it was a bit cloudy the scenery along the Helgeland Coastline is breathtaking and the roads are entertaining.

The pack and the mothership is ready for another glorius day.
The wait for the ferry is a part of life here.

7th riding day - Svolvær to Harstad

The day started with a moist raid from Svolvær to the ferry dock in Fiskebøl. There where a bit of sea, so we had to tie the bikes down during the short voyage to Melbu. From there we went to Stokmarknes where we visited the museum of the Hurtigruten - the ferry line that has connected the coast from Bergen to Kirkenes since 1893.

We practiced some seaman skills.

8th riding day - Harstad to Kvænangfjellet

We left Harstad in the morning sun, and for the first day on this tuor the sun kept on shining on us througout the day...

...and into the night. We are now really in the land of the midnight sun!

We are getting closer!

10th riding day - Alta to Lakselv

Today we reached North Cape! After many wet days we very lucky enough to get calm winds and a sunny 20C/68f on our way.

What a gloriuos day it was!

11th riding day - Lakselv to Enontekiö

Finnmark Plain is the core area of the sami rain herding culture. To day we rode across the plain from Lakselv via Karasjok and Kautokeino, befor we crossed into Finlans Lappland. In Karasjok the Sami museum was visited, and in Kautokeino we went by JuhlsSilversmith. Both interesting places that gives an insight to the sami culture.

What a fantastic tour! This was worth the wait of 3 years to finally take this tour. Norway is so much more scenic than I imagined!! Many twisty and well maintained roads, beautiful fjords and villages, mountains and waterfalls and yes...even Trolls. We had a large group that was truly international from countries like Austria, Germany, Netherlands, Norway, Slovenia, UK and USA. Some wonderful friendships were made and lasting memories too! I want to especially thank our tour guides Angela, Arild and Felix for taking care of us and making this tour so enjoyable. I look forward to my next Edelweiss adventure!
