LYNGEN BIKE AND SAIL
NEW MOUNTAIN BIKE EXPERIENCE: BIKE AND SAIL IN NORTHERN NORWAY. Just like you can start your ski tours from the boat in Lyngen, you can do the same with your bike: we will lodge on the boat, float into a different fjord and along the coast every day to find and ride the best single track of the north, which are inaccessible any other way.
According to the outdoor-scene's law, in the summer, mountain bikers are happiest where free riders and ski tourers run riot in the winter. And vice versa. This is true in the Alps as well as in Norway. We from YellowTRAVEL like to come back to places where we have been skiing and snowboarding for years, and where we know each slope and knoll like the back of our hand, even when there is no snow. Lyngen, Norway's hottest freeriding and ski touring region, is very much to our taste when it comes to skiing. Now we want to check it out on our bikes in combination with life on a boat, which will make us absolute trend-setters. Biking in Norway is still pretty new and special. If you're looking for wide, smooth fire roads for the climb, like the ones that exist in the Alps, you'll be disappointed. You have to work hard, pedal and often even hike and carry your bike to the top. When you’ve reached the top you'll feel like when you take the skins off your skies in winter: views that will leave you speechless.

ITINERARY & ROUTES

Day 1
Arrival. Flights to Tromsø (TOS)
. Once everybody has arrived we will take the two hour crossing to Lyngen, where our sailboat, Arctic Aurora, is docked on the Lyngenfjord. The journey will offer fascinating first impressions of the fjord landscapes of Norway.

Day 2 to day 7
Fantastic daily bike trips starting directly from our boat.
The mountainous landscape around Lyngenfjord is very diverse and is heavily influenced by glaciers. Sparse forests and shrubs can only be found in the lower elevations. There is a relatively well-defined trail system. There will be no forest roads but trails in various grades of difficulty. We will float along the coast and reach our access points by boat. We will explore territory, which no mountain biker has seen before. On Saturday we will all return to Tromsø together. Because we don't want to miss any opportunities, we will take advantage of the day and either take our bikes on the trails of the Lyngen Alps or go for a ride somewhere along the way. Back in Tromsø, we will check into our Hotel, put on our nice clothes and wander around the alleys and streets of the city. Over a final dinner we will let our bike week unwind.

Day 8
Day of departure
. Breakfast at the Hotel, transfer to the airport and return flight.

CHARACTER

We will lodge on the sailboat and travel in a different fjord every day, so that we can explore the best single track directly from the boat. The boat is equipped with every imaginable amenity: a big saloon, four double cabins with four showers and wireless internet. Our skipper will pamper us with delicious, local cuisine. Besides biking we want you to experience the unique landscape, the far-out feeling, which you might only remember from ski tours.
Bike rides in Norway are not comparable to the ones in the Alps. Before you can hop on your bike for the downhill, you have to pedal, carry or hike your bike to the top. On the downhill we will find ourselves on the less traveled, technical trails. 
The descent offers stunning views and impressions of the unique landscape. Sometimes we will go on several smaller rides on one day, so that we maximize our experience of the fjords on Northern Norway. The weather can change quickly and we might start out in pouring rain and end our day with the sun warming up our descent to the ocean.

REQUIREMENTS

Sufficient strength and fitness to manage approximately 1,000 vertical meters of ascent and downhill per day. Safe and confident bike handling on trails with an S2-3 rating. Experience on alpine trails (sure-footedness) and in handling short pushing or carrying passages. Sometimes it makes sense to do two shorter rides on one day.

MEETING POINT

On the day of arrival at the airport in Tromsø (TOS).
In case of differing arrival times, the time of the latest arrival will become our meeting time. Please make sure to share your flight itinerary with us in advance.

REQUIRED EQUIPMENT

Well-maintained bike: all-mountain full suspension (at least 120mm of travel) or an Enduro bike, bike backpack, helmet and protectors.
