Cycling in Vesterålen

  •  /  km From You

To experience Vesterålen from the seat of your bicycle is to experience the incredible Northern-Norwegian coastal culture up close. Putting one kilometer after another behind you and watching the spectacular fjords, green mountains, dramatic peaks and white sand beaches roll by is something you will never forget.

Cycling in Vesterålen is varied, with very differnet landscapes in short distances. Ever since ancient times the people of Vesterålen have lived of fishing and agriculture. They settled down near the ocean, which means that today the roads are near the ocean as well, following the coastline. The cycling routes are easy to cycle with hills few and far apart, but varied terrain and some areas have very little traffic. In other words, the roads arewell suited for bicycles with a trailer and a small amount of baggage cargo.

Corner Sport in Stokmarknes provides bicycles and cycling equipment for rent, which makes it possible for you to chart out a suitable daily route that lets you travel at your own speed, and enjoy as much as possible of the region. They bring bicycles where you want to pick them up, so if you want to start in Andenes in the north and cycle south along National Tourist Route Andøya you can. If you prefer to start your trip in the fairytale municipality of Bø, or in the fisherman's vilalge of Nyksund, that is also possible,
