Itinerary:

Selling points: Thousands of islands, large and small, flat and round, long and narrow. Spectacular nature with towering mountain peaks, ocean vistas and sheltered coves. Easy level on local roads with less traffic. Midnight sun. Ferry crossings. National Tourist road Helgeland.

By pedal power, you can travel all along the varied coast, around fjord inlets, across bridges and along the foot of majestic mountains. It will not be the hills that will take your breath away on this trip, but the sights and impressions! Every day you will have a spectacular view of famous mountain landmarks: De Syv Søstre (Seven Sisters) Dønnamannen and Trollhatten. We also visit the island of Lovund, which is famous for its large colony of Puffins. You can choose between short and long day trips – precisely the alternative that suits you then and there. The trip starts in Brønnøysund and ends up in Sandnessjøen. It is possible to continue by boat to Bodø. You visit a lot of small islands during this tour.
