Die Route beginnt am Nordkap, dem nördlichsten Punkt Europas, an der Barentsseeküste. Sie radeln in Richtung Süden, durch das Land des indigenes Volkes der Samen. Entlang der Route können Sie vielleicht sogar Rentierschwärme beobachten. Von der Stadt Tromsø aus geht es an der Küste entlang durch Senja, Andøya und die Lofoten, wo steile Berge hoch über dem Meer aufragen. An der Küste von Helgeland überqueren Sie den Polarkreis und verabschieden sich von der Mitternachtssonne. Dennoch gibt es in dieser Region im Sommer die meiste Zeit der Nacht noch Tageslicht!

Hinweis: Auf diesem Teil der Strecke müssen viele Tunnel überquert und viele Fähren genommen werden.
