Visit Southern Norway by Cycle
Welcome to Norway’s Southern Coast!
Come and join us along the attractive Southern coastline of Norway by cycle. Also known as Sørlandet in Norwegian. It’s home to quaint towns and famous for its white-painted wooden houses. The Southern coast is also a popular place for Norwegians to spend their summer holidays. What better way to explore this spectacular scenic destination than by cycle?
Our cycling tour will take you to five cosy small towns along the coast, full of mesmerising scenery and charming white wooden houses. Pack lightly as you to ultimately enjoy using a pollution-free form of transport (cycling) to the fullest during the Norwegian summertime. You will begin in Oslo and travel via train or bike to the rugged coast near Risør. The Southern coast of Norway has also been referred to as the Norwegian Riviera due to its extraordinary beauty.
Throughout your time on this tour, you will cycle at your own leisurely pace through places like Tvedestrand, Arendal, and Fevikkilen. These places are renowned for their narrow streets, white wooden houses and general summery vibes. You will be able to stop along the way at aesthetically pleasing beaches, rock formations, historic islands and make day-trips to nearby islands.
Your journey will come to an end with a relaxed ride to Lillesand before taking the train back to Oslo for your flight home.
