Wild and beautiful Norwegian west coast nature with sheltered fjords, verdant valleys, spectacular waterfalls and rushing river rapids. The contrast and experiences are wide-ranging and just have to be experienced to be believed!
Rallarvegen is the most popular bicycling route in Norway, offering both an historical and close-to-nature adventure. The road was hand-made and was used as a transport route from 1895 -1902 during the building of the Bergenbanen railway. All along the route you will come across preserved cultural treasures from this period, such as railway workers barracks and stone bridges. The road is 123 km in length and the scenery varies immensely, from arctic high mountain nature across Hardangervidda, to verdant Flåmsdalen valley and the wild west coast nature. Flåmsdalen and Flåmsbanen are an adventure in themselves, with lots of waterfalls! Well down in Flåm, it can be exiting to visit a local brewery!
