Day to day itinerary
Every Monday to Saturday between May 29 - August 21.
Tour leader and driver will be Knut Erling Wedul or Frode Lindberg (manager Kystriksveien Reiseliv).
Dag 1. Monday (28 km) Brønnøysund
You will be handed your bike outside Thon Brønnøysund Hotel, where you will spend the night until Tuesday.
On Monday you cycle out to the mountain Torghatten (28 km roundtrip ). Nice and easy bike ride. The walk up to Torghatten is a memorable experience. The trip is best if you continue through the hole and around the mountain.
In the evening you have dinner anywhere in Brønnøysund.
Day 2. Tuesday (27 km)
At 9 a.m everyone gathers for an information meeting at Thon Brønnøysund Hotel. After which we take the boat from Brønnøysund to Vega. We arrive at Rørøy at Vega and cycle to the Vega World Heritage Center and on to the Vega stairs.
In the evening we enjoy a 5-course dinner (included in the package) at Vega Havhotell, where we also spend the night.
The island Vega is well suited for a longer cycle ride if you would like that.
Day 3. Wednesday (25 km)
After breakfast you cycle to Gardsøy, where the speedboat takes you to the island of Herøy. This is a beautiful boat trip, giving you an impression of the vast archipelago.
You come ashore at Flostad on Herøy. Herøy is a paradise for cyclists with its flat landscape and numerous bridges connecting the many islands. Surrounding mountains tower on the horizon.
This night we stay at Herøy Brygge, which has outdoor seating with a great view of the mountain range De Syv Søstre ("the seven sisters").
For those who want an easy hike (2 hours), we recommend Åkvikfjellet on the southern point of the neighbouring island Dønna.
If you want to cycle longer on this day, the conditions are ideal.
Day 4. Thursday (30 km)
Today you are going to the neighbouring island Dønna (bridge connection), and then with ferry to the town of Sandnessjøen. During this tour you will visit Seløy in the far north of Herøy. From here you join a great RIB trip in the archipelago (included in the package).
A visit to the old school on Seløy, which is renovated to a modern eatery and accommodation, is also included. Have lunch or just have a cup of coffee, before cycling over to Dønna.
Check in at hotel Scandic Syv Søstre, which is located right in the center of Sandnessjøen.
Day 5. Friday (39 km)
This day you cycle along the mountain range De Syv Søstre towards Tjøtta. We like to make a stop at the Petter Dass museum, which we pass halfway through the trip. The International War Cemetery at Tjøtta is also worth a visit.
We take the ferry from Tjøtta to Forvik, where we visit the coffee distillery at the old trading post Handelsstedet Forvik.
Half of the group spend the night here, while the restwill stay at Vevelstad Gjestegård, which is nearby.
In the evening we have a joint dinner at Handelsstedet Forvik. Here we get to taste the northern Norwegian specialty Boknafisk.
Day 6. Saturday (33 km)
On the last day of the trip, we cycle along Kystriksveien Fv17 from Forvik to Brønnøysund. Along the way there is a ferry from Anddalsvåg to Horn.
We stop at Hildur's Urterarium, where there are opportunities to buy lunch and look at the herb garden.
It is possible to extend the stay by one night. You can then either spend the night at Hildur's Urterarium in beautiful rooms (without private bathroom/wc) and with a 5-course dinner in the evening. Or you can spend the night at Thon Brønnøysund Hotell.
