  2. Day 2 DRAMMEN TO HORTEN

    Leaving Drammen behind, a small climb rewards you with stunning views of the Drammenfjord, before passing through lush green meadows and small villages. Cycling on a series of cycle lanes, you’ll drop through the pretty village of Sande then pass through lively Holmestrand – ‘the city under the mountain’ – which nestles just below the steep fjord edge. You’ll cycle right into the centre, to the little harbour, tightly packed in summer with small boats, where pavement cafes promise a well-earned break. You then make a long descent into Horten, perhaps stopping at the marine quarter before making your way to your hotel. Dinner is taken at the restaurant across the road overlooking the fjord and the local ferry line. *(Staying at the Thon Horten Hotell)*

  3. Day 3 HORTEN TO SANDEFJORD

    A wooded trail takes you out of Horten, following the fjord, passing through incredibly cute Asgardsstrand, with its streets of wooden houses, to where Edvard Munch was born. Admiring pretty bays and small farms, you’ll arrive in Tonsberg ‘the Viking town’. An undulating ride through green meadows giving occasional glimpses of beautiful bays brings you into Sandefjord, a lovely town, formerly the capital of Norway’s whaling industry. It is now a lively town with some lovely bars and restaurants on the fjord shores. *(Staying at the Scandic Park Sandefjord)*

  4. Day 4 SANDEFJORD TO STROMSTAD (SWEDEN) BY BOAT. OPTIONAL 17KM/11MI RIDE, THEN STROMSTAD TO FREDRIKSTAD

    An early ferry at 8.30am takes you across the opening of the Oslofjord to Stromstad in Sweden, where there is an optional 17km cycle ride through the forest and around the bays. Back for lunch in the town famous for prawns, then a boat up the fjord and a small stretch on Norway’s longest river into Fredrikstad. Time for a quick visit of the impressive old town before heading to your hotel for in the centre of the newer part of town. *(Staying at the Quality Hotel Fredrikstad)*

  5. Day 5 FREDRIKSTAD TO SON

    Today’s ride takes you through stunning countryside mixed with pretty villages, passing old farms, quaint churches and beautiful fjord-side towns. Passing through the larger town of Moss, its tiny Old Quarter has been beautifully restored. A forest track takes you out of town and onto Son, a stunning village on the fjord, to the Son Spa hotel, is a real treat. *(Staying at the Son Spa)*

  6. Day 6 SON TO DROBAK, THEN BOAT TO OSLO

    You’ll cycle to the pretty port of Drobak where you’ll leave your bike and jump on a boat back to Oslo, passing many of the islands along the fjord. From there, it is a short walk to your hotel, which is ideally located in the centre of Oslo. *(Staying at the Hotel Bristol)*

  7. Day 7 OSLO

    Free day to explore Oslo, Norway’s capital city and the oldest in Scandinavia, dating back to 900AD.
