... Sweden is a one-dimensional forest. Denmark is flat and boring... ...but there are routes and places in Norway that are more stunning and more beautiful than anything you will have ever done or will ever do. You must go there. Do not fail to do this... - Johann Koss - What more inspiration do you need to ride our Norway Raid.
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.
We’ll start our Norway Raid in Molde, renowned for it’s panoramic view of some 222 snow-clad peaks, creating dramatic displays of changing colors and contrasts in the shifting light throughout the day, and when reflecting in the Romsdalsfjord. But we are here primarily to experience the unique Atlantic Ocean Road, soak in the charm of the fishing villages en-route and let our legs bring new landscapes to view. Our Norwwy Raid will then take us on to the snaking switchbacks of the Trollstigen, the ‘Troll Road’ followed by the Geiranger fjord, home to breathtaking waterfalls and stunning view points.Challenging, beautiful and incomparable. This is Norway and this is our Norway Raid. One of our previous guests wrote a very insightful blog article about his time on the trip. Read his Norway Raid in depth.
