Overview

Five-day cycling trip along the Sognefjord, passing small islands and skerries along the coast in Gulen, and up in the Stølsheimen mountains.

Exciting cycling trip from Matre north of Bergen.

Experience everything Fjord Norway has to offer in terms of narrow valleys, fjords, the coast and majestic mountains.

On the first day, you head for the mountains and stay at Stordalen Fjellstove mountain lodge. The second day takes you up to an altitude of 700 metres before you descend to the Sognefjord. You follow the fjord out to the unique Brekkestranda Fjordhotell and enjoy an evening by the shore. On the third day, you continue out the Sognefjord to the coast with its many small islands and skerries and end up at Eivindvik Fjordhotell. Day four starts with a short boat trip to the island of Mjømna. This is the Norwegian coast. Experience the contrasts as you cycle inland from the islands towards the mainland. The last overnight stay is at Frøyseth Gardsmat farm. Feel free to take an evening stroll in the idyllic cultural landscape along the Ynnesdal river system. On the fifth day, you cycle into the Masfjorden area, where the mountains once again become steeper and the valleys deeper. Remember to bring your camera!
