Description

With the motorcycle to the North Cape - that sounds like a desire to explore! The deep forests of Finland, the barren landscape of Lapland, the North Cape, the Atlantic Road and last but not least the Trollstigen at the Geiranger Fjord winding through the mountains - this trip takes you along many a spectacular route. On your tour you will pass exciting cities as well as plenty of wild and lonely nature. Sometimes lush green, sometimes rugged and barren. You will 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 staying power. Almost 5,000 km of experience are on the program. If you want to reach the North Cape, you have to accept the distance ... and the way is the goal. Partly long daily stages of up to 400 km make this trip an ambitious tour. But the impressions are worth it. The partly winding roads and last but not least the Trollstigen and the Atlantic Road bring a lot of riding fun! On some days we offer you alternative routes.

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

Day 1: Arrival

Individual arrival in Lübeck-Travemünde, embarkation in the late evening and departure in the direction of Helsinki at night (approx. 2.00 a.m. (Mondays) or 3.00 a.m. (Tuesdays to Sundays)). Overnight stay on board.

Day 2: At sea

Enjoy a relaxing day at sea. Overnight stay on board.

Day 3: Helsinki - Jyväskylä (approx. 280 km)

In the morning (approx. 9.00 o'clock) arrival in Helsinki. If you like, you can take a look at the Finnish metropolis and make a stop at the cathedral, the harbour or the rock church. Then your eventful tour starts in northern direction. You will reach one of the regions with the most lakes in Finland. Your destination for the day is Jyväskylä. The university town has many buildings by the architect and designer Alvar Aalto. Overnight stay in Jyväskylä.

Day 4: Jyväskylä - Oulu (approx. 340 km)

The further north you travel, the lonelier the roads become, with forests and lakes dominating the route. With Oulu you reach a lively harbour town. It is famous for the Air Guitar World Championship. Overnight stay in Oulu.

Day 5: Oulu - Sodankylä (approx. 340 km)

You ride into the great loneliness of Lapland. From here on you should expect reindeer! Near Rovaniemi you cross the polar circle. Nearby you will find Santa's post office. Overnight stay in Sodankylä.

Day 6: Sodankylä - Karasjok (approx. 310 km)

Further north. At Inari you can visit the museum of Sami culture. You can also take a look at Lake Inari, which is the third largest lake in Finland. Just before Karasjok you will cross the border to Norway. Overnight stay in Karasjok.

Day 7: Karasjok - North Cape - Honningsvåg (approx. 240 km)

A short stretch through the inland, then you reach the coast of Northern Norway. You ride to Honningsvåg - station for the exploration of the North Cape. A visit to the North Cape is a childhood dream for many, and a photo in front of the North Cape globe is a must-have souvenir. Overnight stay in Honningsvåg.

Day 8: Honningsvåg - Alta (approx. 210 km)

In the morning you can ride to the North Cape again. Then you say goodbye to the slate plateau and ride to Alta. There you can see old rock paintings. Overnight stay in Alta.

Day 15: Molde - Trollstigen - Geiranger (approx. 150 km)

Again an impressive road - the Trollstigen. You ride to Ånadalsnes and from here you reach the pass, which winds through the landscape in narrow hairpin bends. The panorama is literally breathtaking. It is worth stopping at the viewpoints. Overnight stay in Geiranger.

Day 16: Geiranger - Sogndal (approx. 210 km)

You take the ferry to Hellesylt - the trip through the fjord is one of the most beautiful in Norway. The landscape is rough and idyllic in equal measure. Waterfalls dominate the massive rock faces.

Enjoy the last stage through the picturesque landscape. Arrived in Oslo, you have time for explorations. The Royal Palace, the striking brick City Hall and the Vigeland Sculpture Park are just a selection of the highlights. The Grünerløkka district shows an interesting side of Oslo beyond the major sights. Overnight stay in Oslo.
