Vesterålen - The islands north of Lofoten

This bicycle trip takes you on an exciting tour of the archipelago just north of Lofoten. In this hidden gem, you can relax and enjoy the silence as you ride your bicycle through the varied, beautiful and exciting nature. You bike along quiet fjords and sweeping oceans, along impressive peaks, colourful marshes and lush cultural landscape. Along the way, you will experience the old fishing village Nyksund. The abandoned ghost town by the open ocean has awakened with new life and become a unique destination for travellers in Vesterålen. Further on, you can shorten your bike ride with an exciting boat trip between the small islands south of Nyksund. Then you move on to Bø in Vesterålen. With its beautiful and diverse nature, Bø is often characterized as the pearl of Vesterålen.

We have added a couple of extra days, with time to explore more roads or go for a hike. In Nyksund you can walk Dronningruta (The Queen's Route), named after Queen Sonja of Norway who fell in love with the trail and the landscapes when she was here in 1994. The trip was voted Norway's most beautiful hike in 2012.
