The Fjell & Fjord region is a paradise for those who want a cycling holiday. There is a multitude of prepared trails and roads for all cycling levels and types – touring, terrain and downhill. Cycling from the high mountains through panoramic views to the majestic fjords is an adventure and an unforgettable experience.

The scenic Rallarvegen (the Navvies’ Road) , that goes from the vast mountain plateau of Hardangervidda down to Flåm and the Aurlandsfjord, is one of the most appreciated bike routes in Norway.
