The Norwegian winter lasts nine months. Through the course of the year there is a wild fluctuation from no light at all, to nothing but. In a land of such extremes there are natural challenges that run alongisde the savage beauty. All that exists to be enjoyed there has to be earned too; testing conditions like these, no doubt, lend themselves to the adventurous, travelling spirit of the Norse and keep other prospectors out.
Fortunately for us this has left Norway an undisturbed, dramatic and extraordinary country to explore. Stretching more than a thousand miles from north to south and boasting almost fifteen thousand miles of uninterrupted coastline, Norway is the sleeping giant of Europe. Thankfully we at La Fuga have delved into our local contacts and hand picked a fantastic two wheeled escape for you which showcases the best of the rugged Norwegian mountains and jaw dropping landscapes.
