By motorbike to the North Cape - that sounds like a joy of discovery! The deep forests of Finland, the barren landscape of Lapland, the North Cape, the Atlantic Road and last but not least the Trollstigen on the Geiranger Fjord winding through the mountains - this journey takes many a spectacular route. On your tour you will pass exciting cities as well as a lot of wild and lonely nature. Sometimes lush green, sometimes rugged and sparse. You cross the Arctic Circle twice, once northwards in Finland and once southwards in Norway. And with the North Cape you will reach the northernmost point of your journey - and perhaps also the fulfilment of a long-cherished childhood dream ...

Tour character:

A tour for adventurers with a seat. Almost 5,000 km of experience are on the programme. If you want to get to the North Cape, you have to take the route... and after all, the journey is the destination. Some long daily stages of up to 400 km make this trip an ambitious tour. But the impressions are worth it. The partly curvy roads and not least the Trollstigen and the Atlantic Road bring a lot of riding fun! On some days we offer alternative routes for you to choose from.

If you like, you can extend your stay with a side trip to the Lofoten Islands!
