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.
Narrow, sometimes very steep single tracks and views to die for. After an active day on the tracks, you can relax on a summit watching the sun set in the fjord.
This alpine biking tour in Romsdal has it all, for beginners and experts alike.
Price from NOK 850 per person (based on a minimum of four people), including six hours of guiding.

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.
