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.
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 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.
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.
