HIGHLIGHT: The Arctic Cathedral is a landmark in Tromsø and can easily be reached by bike.

The scenery along the way is varied as quiet country roads take you through forests and down narrow lanes around the fjords. If you're up for it, you can also explore the routes in the mountains – and wind up in down town Tromsø where you can dig into some urban delights.

Why not join a guided city-tour on bike where you'll visit many of Tromsø’s must-see highlights in just a few hours, while the guide reveals secrets and fun facts about the city? In the summer you can even sign up for city-tours with electrical bikes. Tromsø Outdoor offers two departures every day.  

Alternatively, you could join a tour that stretches for several days, taking you to the exciting and beautiful landscape far above the arctic circle.
