Description

Easy cycling in the alps, on quiet roads.

We start with a ferry ride of 25 minutes from Breivikeidet. The tour will continue from Svensby to Jægervatnet, for circa 20 km, where we take a break in our lavvo camp.

The tour continues through the bay and ends in Nord-Lenangen, a small picturesque village on the edge of Lyngen, a total of 40 km.  On Sundays we board the local fast ferry, which sails between Tromsø-Skjervøy, which will take us back to Tromsø via a number of stops in small villages.

On the Sunday boat trip we will see Karlsøy, well known for being popular with hippies in the 1960s.

On the other days of the week, we will end the tours with a visit to a 'culture cafe' in Svensby.  Minimum age 16.

Included: Transport, guide, ferry, bicycle, food at culture cafe.
