Day 1 Cycling Tour de Fjords

Arrival day: We pick you up with your luggage (and bikes) at the airport and drive you to the starting hotel for the trip. Here you meet the guide and discuss the plans for the trip.

Day 1: Tripmeeting with the guide at Knutholmen in Kalvåg. Talking through trip routines, safety, day program, bike techniques. Today is the longest day in distance but is has little hills. We cycle the island of Bremanger and enjoy this special coastal landscape with sea and fjord views, cliffs and vast barren rock. We might even hop by a white sandy beach.

We have lunch at the 400 years old tradingpost in Rugsund, leave the coast, bike along the Nordfjord and use the ferry to cross over and into the Hjelmelandsvalley where we stay at Balsnes gård.

5hrs biking, 80 km's, altitude 100m up 50m down, 1 ferry 15 min.
