From the summer season 2013 it will be possible to rent an EL-Bike or to join guided EL-Bike tours in Hammerfest.
Depending on rider weight, pedaling and terrain the electric bike can go for 60 km at a cruising speed of up to 25 km/h. Bike fitting and orientation takes 15 minutes. Guided tours in and around Hammerfest are between 2 and 3 hours. We also offer an EL-Bike tour combined by a boat tour to the Island Sørøya and lunch at the farm Gamvik Gård. EL-bikes are still pedal bikes, but they offer the rider an extra push via a rechargable, electric assist motor. The EL-bikes are available for rent at the tourist information in Hammerfest for persons aged 15 and up, previous biking experience recommended. The EL-bikes are somewhat heavier than a regular bike.
