Organized cycling trip
6-day cycle tour from Brønnøysund with luggage transport and tour guide. A great bike ride where you get to experience the best the Helgeland coast has to offer. You choose between an electric bike or a regular hybrid bike.
On this tour, you cycle at your own pace, but with a tour guide who brings your luggage from one place to the other. Should an accident happen, help is never far away and along the way the tour guide will also give you good tips for excursions that you can take on your own.
The trip starts and ends in Brønnøsund with departures every Monday throughout the summer. The return to Brønnøysund is on Saturday and many choose to spend an extra night there. You can then choose between staying in the center of Brønnøysund (Thon Hotell Brønnøysund) or Hildur's Urterarium.
The cycling distnace is 30-40 km per day and they are relatively easy. The landscape is very flat with only a few hills. This tour can be cycled by the vast majority of people, especially if you choose an electric bike.
