Northern Kystriksveien by bike

Explore the northern part of the Coastal road – Kystriksveien, by bike. The tour usually begins in Bodø and includes the wonderful archipelago with the islands Sørarnøy, Sandhornøy and Støtt. In the south lies Svartisen, Norway's second largest glacier.  In the north you will visit the world's strongest maelstrom Saltstraumen.

Bodo - Gildeskål and Meløy

The north part of Kystriksveien has a lot to offer for those who want a bike ride in the beautiful scenery. A tour, starting in Bodø will include cycling along road 17 with some challenging parts, but also island hopping and cycling in flat terrain close to the sea.

If you are looking for a 2-3 day trip, Inndyr in Gildeskål would be a good base for trips to the islands Sandhornøy and Sørarnøy. You can also rent bicycles on the island Støtt and at Ørnes.

Svartisen is one of Norways best nature experiences. From Ørnes, you can rent a car and quickly get to Norway's second largest glacier. Brestua, located next to the glacier offers both accommodation and good food. A trip to Svartisen should be a half day or a full day trip. The best way to experience the glacier is to join a guided tour.  This should be booked at leas tone day before.
