Norway has just over five million inhabitants, which are spread over an area that is almost three times the size of Germany. Breathtaking natural scenery, a mainland coastline of more than 25,000 km in length and fjords steeped in legends, stretching over kilometres into steep rock formations. These however are only a few of the special features of the country: the density of the population is the lowest in Europe, even behind Iceland's population density. In Norway you also find the world's longest tunnel, which is the only tunnel running under a glacier in the world. There are also several spectacular chain and bateau bridges. The northern most nation of the European mainland is perfect for cycling tours in the wild and offers countless hightlights to visitors, which makes Norway a unique and distinctive destination. A comparable scenery cannot be found in Europe, perhaps you can find something similar in the expanse of Canada or with limitations also on the other side of the globe – in Tierra del Fuego and the glaciers of Patagonia.
Northern Lights in mild summer nights
Despite Norway’s location temperatures along the entire coastal region are moderate. The reason for this is the moderate influence of the Gulf Stream and the maritime climate in the coastal regions which the climate depends on. Nevertheless summer is best suited for cycling holidays – unless you are very keen to spend long winter nights near the polar circle and with a bit of luck, observe the amazing Aurora Borealis – the spectacular northern lights! Chances are also good to see them during the months of September and October if you prefer. You can witness this extraordinary spectacle of nature at least once a week on average in this period, whereas outside of this time frame you might have to wait for weeks to see them.
