If you are planning a cycling holiday in Norway, you really must include the magnificent Helgeland coast in your itinerary. Here, “island hopping” on two wheels is an unforgettable adventure and something we think everyone should consider treating themselves to at least once in their life. Let us share some of the many cycling routes that are ideal also for a family holiday, with suggested accommodation and other good tips for your journey

There is a wonderful paradox: you travel more slowly by bicycle, but in a way you experience far more. Travelling at your own chosen pace, you can really experience the scents and hear the sounds of coastal Helgeland, and meet the proud people for whom this is home. In a sense, you get to see behind the façade, and to know this beautiful region from the inside.

Plan your trip so that everyone can keep up. Whether you are on a romantic adventure with your partner or your whole family is along for the voyage, there is no reason to be in a hurry.

From island to island along the Helgeland coast

You can cycle the full scenic length of the Helgeland coast, or explore a single island or several. Perhaps you prefer to head straight for the major attractions, such as Torghatten (the mountain with a hole through it), the Seven Sisters range, or the distinct mountain called Rødøyløva. Or let the road take you where it will, inspiring you to take detours on a whim. When you explore Helgeland on two wheels, there is no such thing as a wrong turn.
