PROGRAM: AUGUST 12th – AUGUST 19th 2017
SEPTEMBER 9th – SEPTEMBER 16th 2017
Day 1: The Atlantic Road
Day 1 is flat terrain along the Atlantic Road. We will ride over and back again. This is about 8 km and has 8 bridges, really epic location. The biggest bridge is the most spectacular.
This is called the coast road and could give a really nice view of the riders going along the coastline.

Day 2: The Longfjord (Langfjorden)
This is the longest tour. We start by the ferry at Åfarnes and go all the way around the fjord and ends up by our guesthouse in Isfjorden. Quite flat and fast until Eresfjord, which is Kurt Asle Arvesens (Team Sky) homeplace. We will ride his training-hill Vistalsheia up to about 500 metres. Some tight corners up here and also some massive mountains in the background. A nice area for some photo. Most of the day we ride along the fjord, actually 3 different fjords during the day. When we reach Isfjorden, my homeplace, the landscape changes to steep mountains, very beautiful scenery.
At the menu in the guesthouse is our Norwegian Tapas, with lot`s of local food from the area.
**Day 2 Route
Day 3: Isfjorden – Trollstigen – Valldal
Short trip, but also EPIC up Trollstigen. If the weather is clear, we take the extra kilometers up the valley to see the Troll Wall. Trollstigen is 800 meters high, averages 10% and the surroundings are out of this world! The tightest corners are the top part after the bridge in the middle. Also really nice in the beginning when the road goes along the river. At the top the road continues uphill for a few kilometers, and then it`s all downhill and flat towards Valldal. Lot of nice green strawberry-farms down the valley towards Valldal.
Day 3 route
Day 4: Rest day
A welcome break for the legs. Explore the local area, chill out on the boat or even go for a ride! We can recommend some lovely places to visit from where we are moored.
Day 5: – Eidsdal – Geiranger – Dalsnibba
Another spectacular day of biking! Starts with a heavy uphill from Eidsdal, about 10 km over the mountain and then steep downhill towards Geiranger, maybe the most spectacular fjord we have in Norway! The road down to the fjord is called Ørneveien, The Eagle Road, and the top corner has a nice viewpoint. Down in Geiranger we start the long 22 km climb to Dalsnibba at 1476 metres, and go down again the same way to the boat. A hard but amazing day of biking. The last 4-5 km up to Dalsnibba, on the “backside” of the mountain, there are a lot of nice tight corners with very nice view towards a lake and a glacier.
**Day 5 route
Day 6: Hellesylt – Hjørundfjorden – Ålesund
Last day starts uphill again towards Norangsdalen, a really green and tight valley. Also at the end of the Valley at Øye down the the fjord, Hjørundfjorden. Another option this day is taking the ferry al the way to Standal. Could be a nice way to enjoy the fjord and the surrounding mountains and it`s also a typical thing to do in the region. We can decide before we start. We end the day at Festøya where Sven picks us up and we sail into Ålesund.
