Discover Fjord Norway's potential as an MTB destination. Places like Northwest and Nordfjord have an abundance of cool trails that reveal the fjords from a new perspective.
Bring your mountain bike to the northwestern part of Fjord Norway – a true paradise for cycling. This region provides extraordinary cycling experiences – spectacular scenery, unspoilt nature, beautiful mountain passes, coastal landscapes, cycling by the fjords, and lots of amazing roads with almost no traffic. The distances are small, but the impressions are big.
Within the scenic surroundings of the Romsdalsfjord, you’ll discover a great choice of stunning trails – from exciting off-road biking through forests to single track mountain trails with spectacular views, from summit to fjord.
Join a full-on mountain bike trip deep into the fjord landscape around the Geirangerfjord. You will push your bike to towering summits before starting the steep descent through the wildest mountain ridges – this trip is recommended for advanced mountain bikers who enjoy steep, technical trails.
Accommodation is arranged on board an ex-navy minesweeper. All meals, even wine and beer, are included in the price.
Price from GBP 3,400 per person.
Discover the hidden gem of the Aursjøveien road, which is known for being tougher than Trollstigen. In fact it is perfect for biking as it is almost traffic-free.
The first day is tough as we make our way through the valley of Litldalen, ascending from the fjord up to 860 metres above sea level, but we will take our time. Day two starts easy in a fairly flat but beautiful area before biking down to the Eikesdalen valley. At the Mardalsfossen waterfall we are picked up and taken back to Sunndalsøra around 16.00.
Price from NOK 3,600 per person.
In Nordfjord the water is almost turquoise, surrounded by glaciers and high mountains, and further out in the fjord you will find white sandy beaches. The cycling opportunities are equally exciting with many miles of marked mountain biking trails and quiet roads near the fjords. Bikes and safety equipment are available to rent in many places.
If you enjoy MTB, check out the Stryn Festival or the Folven Mountain Bike Camp (more information below) – you do not need to be a pro rider!
The location of Folven Camping makes it the perfect base for exploring trail riding in Hjelledalen Valley and other places in Stryn. The area has become a paradise for mountain bikers with narrow passages, 300 metre deep gorges and great forest trails, as well as easier terrain.
Go for trips on your own, or with a guide.
Price from NOK 1,700 for a cabin for 2-4 people for 2 days (June, July, August).

When cycling on the roads in Norway, the same traffic regulations and road signs apply to you as to cars and other vehicles: Keep to the right, give way to those coming from your right, and don’t drink and bike.
You may cycle on the pavement, but adapt your speed. You may not cycle on motorways and dual carriageways. Always wear a helmet when cycling. A high visibility vest is a good idea, especially on busy roads. Only children under the age of 10 may be carried as passengers.
In darkness and poor visibility make sure your bike is equipped with a white or yellow light in the front, and a red light in the back. You also need a red reflector in the rear and white or yellow reflectors on the pedals.
Make sure your bike has two brakes that work independently of each other and a bicycle bell.
