With masterly constructions like the Trollstigen road and the Atlantic road, the region of Fjord Norway offers some of the most remarkable road cycling adventures in the country.
It is in the northwestern part of Fjord Norway you find the Trollstigen hairpin bends. If you have a competitive streak, put yourself to the test in the Trollstigen race or the Trollveggen Triathlon, held in Åndalsnes every year. While in the area, make sure you take the opportunity to cycle the scenic Atlantic Road on the coast between Kristiansund and Molde.
Cycling by the coast is also well worth trying – a favourite is to go island hopping with shorter stages and ferry crossings. For the experience of a lifetime, you can try Bike & Sail - staying on board a boat on the fjord at night and cycling in the fjord landscape at day.
Quite a bit further south, in the Stølsheimen area between Bergen and Voss, there are several fjord route cycling options along quiet local roads. Choose between short, easy trips and longer tours with climbs that are rewarded by impressive views at the top, and be sure to enjoy the beauty of the wide mountains, deep valleys, fjords and the beautiful coast as you ride.
In September 2017, the streets of Bergen and immediate surroundings were hosting the UCI Road World Championship – one of the biggest sporting events in the world. Come and see for yourself why this area was chosen!

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.
