Some of the best pro cyclists in the world will compete, surrounded by stunning, wild and dramatic Norwegian scenic backdrops. The race can be seen on TV worldwide and gets extensive media coverage. However, we invite you to come to Norway and see and explore what the Arctic Race of Norway is all about. Be prepared for cheering crowds, fun activities and welcoming hosts.

But you don’t have to be an athlete to enjoy cycling along the winding roads of Norway yourself. You don’t even have to bring your own bike. From late spring until autumn, you can find numerous biking adventures throughout the country, either on the roads or on off-road tracks.

The four stages of the Arctic Race of Norway 2019

Stage 1: Å–Leknes 182 kilometres
Stage 2: Henningsvær–Svolvær 168.5 kilometres
Stage 3: Sortland–Storheia summit (Melbu) 176.5 kilometres
Stage 4: Lødingen–Narvik 166.5 kilometers

Plan your own trip to Arctic Norway

There is no need to wait until you’re here to find out what you’d like to do. Check out what Northern Norway has to offer.
