Magellan’s Arctic Circle tour is by far one of the most popular trips on offer and it’s not difficult to see why when majestic fjords, severe mountain ranges, cascading waterfalls, glaciers and viking ships are flaunted shamelessly around every corner. Norway is in a league of its own. For anyone who has done this tour, you’d be forgiven for thinking we couldn’t possibly best it, but here we are and that’s exactly what we’ve done.
New for 2020, Magellan are introducing a shiny new tour encompassing the best biking roads in the country taking in Norway’s rugged coastlines, serene islands, dramatic fjords and quintessential scandinavian cities. New areas and experiences line up to make for a completely different but still beauty filled tour.
So what’s new we hear you ask? Well …. With brand new routes constructed through Holland, Germany and Denmark we arrive in Norway to journey north, north and then north a bit more, through vast national parks surrounded by craggy, dramatic peaks and deep fjords using new routes, voted as the best by Norwegian bikers. One road is the same…. But who doesn’t enjoy riding the iconic hairpin riddled road of the Trolls Ladder? The tour is then built around two night stays in each hotel to get the most out of the stunning scenery stacked rideouts, boat trips, island hopping and city tours. This new format ensures you have enough time to immerse yourself in the Norweigan culture with visits to the painfully beautiful island of Alesund with it’s gorgeous art nouveau architecture. Oslo, with its scandinavian churches and fortresses and the rugged coastal city of Bergen. With plenty of time in and out of the saddle, you’re sure to experience the best of the roads and culture in one of the most beautiful countries on earth.
