Norway by gravel bike, the route to paradise.

Getting away from the crowds, mass tourism and all it’s trappings is what a bike trip to Norway is all about.

Norway is a mythical place for nature lovers, adventure lovers and those in search of some space. In this northern corner of Europe you’ll find spectacular scenery, jaw dropping fjords, majestic mountain, glaciers, waterfalls, crystal clear lakes… the list goes on!

Why explore Norway by gravel bike?

The best way to explore the delights of Norway is without a doubt by bike, and particularly a gravel bike as they are ideal for the gravel paths and country backroads that crisscross the country.

Being able to get off the beaten track means you’ll discover the local culture and the wild landscapes in a much more intimate way, meaning authenticity a-plenty. Every pedal stroke is richly rewarded.

The Norwegian infrastructure is perfect for cycling, with smooth gravel tracks, super quiet roads and loads of accommodation well suited to cyclists. Which all adds up to a great bike trip.

It’s one of the best countries for “Slow Travel” exploration… to make the most of nature. It’s also a great way to get adventuring far from where is accessible by vehicle.

So to sum up, a bike trip in Norway is an unforgettable and unique experience, with breath-taking scenery, a local culture passionate about the outdoors, great cycling infrastructure, and of course the chance to make the most of all the dream gravel trails. All in a totally unique landscape, making for an experience not to be missed.
