On this trip, you can go straight down to the ebb and catch several sights. The Science Centre of Northern Norway, the botanical garden, the Telegraf bay, and Tromsø Museum are also on the ride.
The scenery is varied, and you can ride your bike on quiet country roads through forrests and into open areas between majestic mountains to narrow coastal roads around the fjords. Or you can explore the routes in the mountains – or go for a citybike to pedal between the sites in the centre.
