After cycling through almost 100 countries, I want to show you my favorite places. Join me on a bikeadventure through spectacular landscapes and boost your cycling skills!

 

For 2019, I have partnered with FARA Cycling to offer a one week bike adventure through the stunning scenery of Southern Norway. More adventures coming soon!

Explore the North - Norway

August 3 - 10, 2019

"Far in the North, where the mountains meet a rough coastline, lies a region of breathtaking beauty. We cycle along small forrest roads, past scenic lakes and cascading waterfalls. Without any traffic, we cycle up twisting mountain passes, explore ancient Viking arcitecture and descent into majestic fjords to take a refreshing swim in the ocean. The wilderness of the North offers the perfect setting for an evening bonfire, possibly with some freshly caught fish by the more adventurous participants, while we tell stories of adventure and exploration. The perfect place to escape the busy life at home and enjoy a great adventure."
