Bike Through the Spectacular Fjords of Norway

Biking in Norway against picturesque landscape. Bike, active.

Fjords are deep valleys formed by retreating glaciers. Only a handful of countries in the world have fjords, and Norway’s fjords are perhaps the most spectacular among all.

These steep glacially-carved valleys offer breathtaking views, pristine waters, and unique cultural experiences. 

A biking tour through Norway’s fjords is a one-of-its-kind journey into the heart of nature, where majestic mountains meet serene waters. If you’re not familiar with the country, it’s always good to book your trip with a good Norway bike tour operator such as this one. You can opt for a self-guided tour if you feel you’ll be fine finding your way around. Otherwise, opt for a guided bike tour where you’ll get an expert local guide along with a support van to follow you throughout the tour and carry your luggage.
