Highlights of this motorcycle tour: Fjords and lakes, islands, mountains, and glaciers - in southern Norway, nature pulls out all the stops!

This motorcycle tour takes you to the most stunning fjords of South Norway. With more than 75.000 kilometers, Norway's coastal line marks one of the longest and most beautiful in the world. The reason for this is the famous fjords – sea arms which can reach inland for up to 200 kilometers.

The tour starts in Oslo, the capital of Norway and one of the smallest capitals worldwide. Through the wild and untouched Telemark region, we ride West, spending a night in a historic hotel in Vrådal before we reach the fjords one day later. Breath-taking scenery surrounds us as we cruise along the fjords or cross them via bridges or by ferry. Via Sogndal and Fjærdal we reach Jostedalsbreen National Park, home to continental Europe’s largest glacier.

This scenery will remind you of Antarctica! We’ll ride to Dalsnibba, Scandinavia’s highest road at 5,000 ft., cross the Geirangerfjord on a ferry. At the end of our tour, you can eventually enjoy the beautiful sunset in Ålesund, which you will never forget.

The Viking Experience

I have been traveling with Edelweiss Bike Travel for many years now to the most beautiful countries in the world. Something about my recent The Viking Experience tour however has been different and special. It must have been a good combination of many different things. First of all my wife Hanna did agree to join me on this tour and I have been working hard to convince her ... :-). Our group did interact perfectly and our guide Manuel did do a great job - excellent bikers and great people. The main highlight was surely amazing Norway. The fjords, surrounded by wonderful mountains, the market in the port of Bergen and the Viking's ships are just a few of the wonderful things we experienced. I highly recommend this tour!
