More details

Arrival:
Arrival and departure by ferry from Lübeck-Travemünde and to Kiel and motorcycle transportation on the ferries are already included in the price. The tour is ridden on your own motorcycle.
-
Catering on the ferries:
On the ferries, meals are offered in the on-board restaurants - payable on the spot. For some ferry connections, we offer meal packages that can be booked in advance. These can then be found under optional services in the price section of the trip and can only be booked directly in connection with the trip; it is not possible to add them at a later date.
-
Route description and GPS data:
The route description and GPS data correspond to the itinerary of the trip as described in the invitation to tender. Individual changes and optional programs are not taken into account. The start and end points of our GPS data are usually the city/town centers of the day's destination, as the hotels we usually book may vary. You will not receive route descriptions or GPS data for customized trips.
-
Parking spaces:
For this trip, we generally use hotels that have parking spaces available. We reserve a parking space for you when you book (where possible, no entitlement). Parking fees may apply, which you must pay on site. The amount of the parking fees can vary greatly depending on the location and hotel.
-
Tolls Scandinavia:
Toll charges may apply on some stages, e.g. in Sweden and Norway. Billing is usually automatic, your vehicle is registered when you ride through the toll station and you receive an invoice sent to your home (or to the owner's address). In some cases, however, there are also stations with cash payment.
-
Credit card recommendation for Scandinavia:
Electronic payment methods are more common in Scandinavia than here in Germany. Many petrol stations in Scandinavia are self-service stations, for example, which can usually only be operated with a credit card and PIN; EC cards are not always accepted. You should therefore take a credit card and the corresponding PIN with you on your trip. There are also some hotels, ferry or toll stations that may only accept electronic payment methods.
-
Ride on the Trollstigen:
The pass is only accessible in the summer months - between May and October.
-

Please note that, depending on the route selected, different ferry connections may be included in the stage. These "smaller fjord ferries" in Norway are not included in the price and are payable locally (except those shown separately).

Description

To the North Cape by motorcycle - 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 road winding through the mountains by the Geiranger Fjord - this motorcycle tour takes you along many a spectacular route. On your tour, you will pass exciting towns as well as plenty of wild and lonely nature. Sometimes lush and green, sometimes rugged and barren. 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 motorcycle tour - and perhaps also the fulfillment of a long-cherished childhood dream ...

-

Tour character:

A motorcycle tour for adventurers with stamina. Almost 5,000 km of adventure are on the program. If you want to get to the North Cape, you have to take the route ... and after all, the journey is the reward. Some long daily stages of up to 390 km make this motorcycle tour an ambitious one. But the impressions are worth it. The sometimes winding roads and, last but not least, the Trollstigen and the Atlantic Road provide plenty of riding fun! On some days we offer you a choice of alternative routes.

A short stretch through the interior, then you reach the coast of northern Norway. You ride to Honningsvåg - the stop for exploring the North Cape.

-

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. Here you can see ancient rock carvings, which bear witness to the particularly early settlement of the area and are a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Overnight stay in Alta.

Day 14: Trondheim - Atlantic Road - Molde (approx. 280 km)

-

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

Another impressive road - the Trollstigen. You ride to Ånadalsnes and from here reach the pass, which winds its way through the landscape in tight hairpin bends. The panorama is breathtaking in the truest sense of the word. It is worth stopping at the viewpoints. Overnight stay in Geiranger.
