TROMSØ - SOMMARØY - SENJA - ANDØYA - BØ - SORTLAND - SVOLVÆR
The Arctic Coast, from Tromsø to Svolvær in Northern Norway, is a paradise for those who want a real bicycle adventure. You'll discover dramatic coastlines, sandy beaches, and traditional fishing villages. Take a deep breath, and fill your lungs with fresh sea air as you set off into an exciting and beautiful landscape made up of mountain peaks, ocean, fjords and islands.
From the lively city of Tromsø, the route enters beautiful and varied nature along the fjords, before you meet the ocean at the idyllic island, Sommarøy.
After a short ferry trip, the tour continues to Senja, Norway's second-largest island. The road along the west coast of Senja winds through magnificent and wild nature, uphill and downhill - in and out of fjords.
From Senja you go by ferry to the next island, Andøya, where new adventures are waiting for you. The island offers beautiful sceneries, with large and continuous marshes, steep mountains and sandy beaches. Take your time and explore the island before leaving for Vesterålen and Sortland.
On the second last day you bike to Stokmarknes. From here, you can choose whether to continue by bike towards Svolvær or go by the ship 'Hurtigruten'. Both options give you great sceneries. The tour ends in Svolvær - the 'capital' of Lofoten.
