    Lofoten and Hurtigrute

    to the midnight sun north of the Arctic Circle

    • Radeln Richtung Horten Fascinating and impressive are the Lofoten Islands, which are located far north of the Arctic Circle off the Norwegian coast.

      Here you will find rugged mountain landscapes and white sandy beaches, cliffs surrounded by spray, pastures and idyllic fishing villages.

      Omnipresent in the untouched nature are the red fishermen’s huts (Rorbuer) and the many wooden racks on which the dried cod is hanging to dry in summer.

      E-bikes

      With an e-bike every bike tour is a breeze! If you had few opportunities to cycle over the last weeks or if you are not sure concerning your fitness, but also with physical disabilities, every bike ride is a treat! The shiftable, low noise electric drive of our modern e-bike relieves you of some of the work and increases the pedal force up to 3 times ... So you can now book a bike tour together with cyclists who have different fitness level. Acclivity can be handled easily.

      Bringing of own bikes

      We do not suggest to bring Your own bikes.

      A note to our customers: Electric bikes are a great thing! However, due to their characteristics (high weight + high speed) they should only be booked by very experienced and safe cyclists with a good sense of balance. E-bikes are not appropriate for persons who do not ride bikes frequently.
