Our goal is for you to cycle safely and experience the combination of a bike ride together with a taste of our culture and history. We have devised the route from Svolvær to Kabelvåg, before we enter a secret beach at Ørsnes, which is something of a find. We adjust the route to the weather. We wish to show you Lofoten in our own way, how we live here, and you will get a taste of local history from our guides.
XXLofoten has 33 BMC cross country & touring bicycles. They are suitable for country roads, city exploration and mountains.
We invite you to our offices in Svolvær harbour where you will be welcomed by our tour guide and host for the trip. The bikes are sized from XS to XL and will be adjusted to fit you. Svolvær is a compact small town. By travelling only a few hundred meters out of the urban centre, you will find virtually complete isolation, and magnificent nature. And not even at the cost of a lot of climbing effort. The route goes by the sea, and is thus manageable for most people. You do not need to be particularly fit to join this ride, which totals about 30 km.
"Cycling is the perfect way to experience Lofoten."
The trip takes about five hours. Weather in Lofoten changes rapidly, from sunshine and clear skies to rain. Make sure to bring an extra top, and a pair of gloves if your ride is in May or August, when temperatures can drop some.
