Cycling Through Fjords
The last part of our route led us through a very special part of the country. The west coast has a lot of fjords, and we felt challenged to cycle most of them. This resulted in an itinerary that was all over the place. But it showed us some more hidden spots that motorists usually miss, since they’re not on the main road.
Thin roads, a huge amount of tunnels (consult cycletourer.co.uk for a detailed map on all tunnels in Norway and the level of safety for cyclists), and some of the biggest climbs we’ve done so far. Some tougher than the Alps! Following E39, Fylkesveg 70, 655, 60, E15, Fv60, E39, 610, Fv13, 55, Fv331, Tindevegen, 53, E16, E13, Fv7, 580 and 582. Approximate distance: 1000km
