Tromso-Tromvik Cycling Tour in Norway: fjords, mountains and the sea

An amazing cycling trip from Tromso to Tromvik along the coastline of fjords in Norway. Snow topped mountains, fjords, forests and the sea create a beautiful scenery.

Tromso, a town in Norway above the arctic circle, is situated on an island in the middle of the fjords. The surrounding area is simply beautiful and probably a cycling tour is the best way to see it.

The Tromso-Tromvik route goes along the coastline of the fjords until it reaches the open sea to the north. It starts in Tromso, leaves the Tromsoya island to reach Kvaloya island, then passes through Kaldfjord, Ersfjord and Grotfjord before ending in Tromvik. The distance is about 50 kilometers, or 100 if you do a round trip — something highly recommended.

Along the route you will ride on cycleways or quiet country roads. Although the route goes on rolling hills, it is an easy one with only one bigger hill. During your journey you will see, among others, fjords, snow topped mountains, forests, tiny villages and beaches. As the weather changes very quickly in this area you should expect rain, sunshine and wind.
