The best cycling routes and the most convenient accommodation – Discover Norway (previously Norske Bygdeopplevelser) have done all the hard work for you with their self-guided cycling packages.
Discover Norway’s self-guided cycling packages include accommodation and most meals (breakfast, packed lunch and usually dinner) plus a map and detailed tour description – that is, they make your holiday easy peasy and you can get cycling straight away! Please note that bike hire is available but not included in the price.
The routes are carefully selected in idyllic landscapes with mountains, fjords, forests and valleys along roads with relatively little traffic.
They are suitable for most people, from adults who want an active holiday to families with kids. Many packages include suggestions of additional bike excursions on the way, so you can adapt the route as you wish.

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.
